Architect Edward Nkwegu (EDON), the Gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party LP, in Ebonyi State, on Sunday warned against violent supresion of opposition political parties by the ruling party in the state, stressing violent beget violent.

Nkwegu, explained that violent is an instrument of weak, timid and helpless politicians who lacks confidence in their ability to stand against healthy competition.

Interacting with journalist in his Okpoduma Agbaja country home in the Izzi Local government area of the state, the LP gubernatorial candidate urged politicians to always play by the rules and desist from causing crises in the polity. 

EDON expressed optimism of his party's victory in the 2023 general election in Ebonyi State, noting that his administration will entrone a new order of tolerance, peace, oneness and social integration among other political parties in the State. 

The labour party candidate said he will devep a statelite imagery of the state to address the incessant communal clashes in the State, Nkwegu said his administration would focus on its root cause, rather than on the results of the crisis.

“I hope to look into the causes of the communal clashes, rather than on the results of the crisis and streamline them. The root cause has always revolved around land disputes. The Satellite imagery of the entire state will be acquired as this will help in resolving cases of land disputes, location of various markets, agricultural establishments, among others.

“Violence doesn’t solve a problem; rather violence begat violence. Anybody involve in it is displaying a signs of timidity, underdevelopment,  helplessness, lack of confidence.”

In his Christmas Message, the LP Governorship candidate said: “Christmas is a time of Thanksgiving, repentance and forgiveness of one another. A time of reconcilation with our bothers and sisters. I wish us a celebration of peace and love with one another. We should use this opportunity to reconcile.

“The unconditional love of Jesus Christ is necessary because the person you are forgiving deserves forgiveness.

“He has repented. We forgive because it’s a directive from God. We forgive in other to free ourselves from the psychological torture made against us. It’s a departure from the old saying of an eye for an eye.

“We pray that the election will be conducted in a peaceful atmosphere. Political Parties should tow the path of peace and tolerance as the 2023 general election draws nearer.”
