Retired Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, the Chairman of the National Peace Committee, on Monday, in Benin said that members of his committee were in Edo State to assist in ensuring that the September 19 governorship election was conducted peacefully.
Abubakar said this while addressing Governor Godwin Obaseki, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), governorship candidate, ahead of the peace pact by all political parties involved in the elections, NAN reports.
He explained that the political temperature in Edo State has been high in some areas for some time, and the peace committee decided to assist in calming tensions because if there’s no peace, there cannot be any elections.

“As you know the purpose of this committee is to ensure that all those involved in this election get hold of their supporters and party people to ensure that there’s peace in the State,” he added.
