Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has vowed to cope with thugs that could be used to disrupt the forthcoming governorship election.
The ballot will probably be held on September 19.
On Sunday, Obaseki, the Peoples Democratic Celebration (PDP) candidate, warned towards violence as he campaigned.
He spoke at his ward Opoji, Esan Central Native Authorities Space.
The governor revealed that he obtained intelligence to droop his marketing campaign.
He vowed to not “succumb to threats” and urged PDP members and supporters to stay steadfast.
“We are going to tame the lions and tigers in Edo with related legal guidelines of our nation,” NAN quoted him as saying.
Obaseki assured Opoji residents that “ample safety could be supplied on election day.”
