He warned that if such politicians refuse to play by means of the policies and keep away from do-or-die politics, the conventional rulers could pray to their ancestors to afflict the politicians with existence long problems in all their endeavours.
“We remember the fact that some politicians are shopping guns and are already recruiting gullible youths as thugs for use earlier than and during elections.
“it is our prayer that God and our ancestors help preclude violence and mayhem from our land before, all through and after the elections,” he said.
consistent with him, God and the ancestors are seriously towards those who will accumulate political electricity by using losing blood.
“electricity belongs to and comes from God and He decides who to bequeath it to.

“The Edo state Council of conventional Rulers and Chiefs condemn such act in its entirety,” he said.
The Oba stated that it was customary that there must be winner and loser in an election, as such the winner should learn to be magnanimous in victory at the same time as the loser have to be gallant enough to accept defeat and strategize for victory in subsequent elections.
