ASABA—GOVERNORSHIP candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State, Olorogun O’Tega Emerhor, yesterday, said he did not shun the peace meeting which was held at the instance of the state Police Command where politicians signed a peace pact on Wednesday.
Emerhor, while reacting to media reports that he shunned the meeting, said he was unavoidably absent, but had to send his running mate, Mr Vander-Puya Abannum, who signed the peace pact on his behalf.
Stressing that he was committed to the conduct of a peaceful election, Emerhor said he was a crusader of peace and commended the state Police Command for initiating the peace pact.
According to him, APC is a party committed to a peaceful election in the country, adding that his absence at the meeting was not deliberate.
“I was in Abuja when I got the invitation and the notice was short, so I could not rush back and I asked my running mate to attend on my behalf,” Emerhor explained.
He appealed to the people of the state to vote for the APC, insisting that the APC would give them the needed change they were yearning for.
Emerhor explained that the APC has a good manifesto that would better the lot of all Deltans in all spheres of life.
