The New Nigeria People’s Party Governorship Candidate, Dr Azemhe Azena today stormed Benin city, the Edo state capital with a well attended peace March.

The Governorship Candidate, who was accompanied by a team from the Party National headquarters, led by the Kano State Commissioner for Environment, Hon Nasiru Garu, and the Edo state Party officials led by the party Chairman, Fred Uwangue, used the occasion of the peace rally to pray for the people of Edo State, especially the business people on the streets and markets, declared that a peaceful and secured environment is what Edo state deserves.

“As a Pastor, my first responsibility is to pray for people and for the peace of the land where we live. We will not allow violence and evil to prevail in our land” he declared. Dr Azemhe took time to pray for the people as he stops the long convoy at intervals to speak to them about his message of hope and assurance of a better Edo state when voted into power, come September 21st gubernatorial polls.

The youthful Governorship Candidate, used the occasion to talk to the people about the danger of being deceived by “those who do not understand the problems of Edo state. I understand the problems and therefore, can solve them. I have lived all my life in the state and have provided employment to so many, through my businesses established in the state”, he said.

He however, warned the people to reject those who have no investment in the state but come into the state every election year to seek for their votes for selfish reasons.

The Peace March which took off from the WAEC road axis of Aduwawa area of the city, moved through New Benin and ended at the Ring road roundabout, was a procession spiced with drummers and dancers on a long convoy of vehicles, over two hundred in number and with a huge assemblage of people and Party supporters, cut across all works of life, dressed colourfully in support for the Azemhe Azena mandate.
