Borno StateLabour Party Guber candidate, Capt Ibrahim Mishelia

The gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party in Borno State, Cpt Ibrahim Mishelia had accused the executive governor of Borno State and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship candidate in the forthcoming March18 Gubernatorial election in the state of making unhealthy campaign utterances capable of disturbing the peaceful ambiance of the state.

Mishelia in a press conference addressed in Abuja Monday stated that during his (Zulum) campaign in Biu, Southern Borno, which happens to be his senatorial zone, the governor was publicly inciting the citizens to take to violence should the APC candidates lose at the polls.

While strongly condemning the unhealthy utterances, he noted that it was capable of breeding unimaginable consequences and a governor should not be seen to promote election violence.

His words, “I am peace loving and I have been running my campaigns based on real issues and not issuing threats to opposition parties like the governor has done.

“The clandestine agenda of some agents of political instability have perfected plans to turn the forth coming elections to a battle field and are just waiting to unleash violence. They think, this is the only way to railroad themselves into victory. They must be stopped.

“We have gathered on good authority that, having received the shock of their lives in the last elections wherein the people expressed their discontent with the lingering shenanigans in governance, through their votes.

“As law abiding citizens, we have decided not to lock horns with the rejected and the desperate but rather walk the path of peace to assured victory.

“We therefore call the attention of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mohammadu Buhari, and all the relevant security tangencies to ensure the full protection of lives and property in the coming elections by ensuring that there is a credible election, devoid of manipulations and violence” he concluded.
