Following the failed peace deal attempted by the Oba Of Benin for teams Obaseki and Oshiomhole, the founding Director-General of PDP Governors Forum, Earl Osaro Onaiwu, has requested that Adams Oshiomhole and Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) be put on watchlist.
His Royal Majesty (HRM), Omo N’ Oba N’ Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II tried creating peaceful atmosphere for election in the state but it went south.
Earl Osaro Onaiwu commended the Oba of Benin for this forthrightness and frankness, adding that he has done well as an upright and unbiased father who is worthy of the royal throne bequeathed to him by his ancestors.
He further noted that Oba Ewuare’s call for peace in the imminent Edo State governorship election and his unbiased condemnation of ensuing political violence and its proponents is a testament to the king’s nobility and love for his people.
Onaiwu also called on security agencies to continue to beam their searchlight on former National of APC, Adams Oshiomhole and Mr. Osagie Ize-Iyamu who is the guber candidate of the APC.
He asserted that the duo have a well documented track record of violence trailing them, hence it would not be out of place to keep them on a security watchlist.
Onaiwu stated that they are known aggressors who would not take a quarter of the harassment they’ve meted on Governor Godwin Obaseki at the palace.
He wondered how brutish they would have been wielding power if they were the ones in office presently.
