The Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo Oba Ewuare II, has appealed to politicians involved in the forthcoming elections in Edo State to sheath their swords and not turn the state to a laughing stock.
The Monarch also appealed to the politicians to end the violence which has been recurrent in the state in the past few weeks.
The Oba who made the appeal in a peace meeting held with top politicians lamented that Edo State politics has been in the news recently for the wrong reasons.
He expressed sadness over the recent happenings in the state and appealed to politicians to borrow a leaf from the 2015 general election when former President Goodluck Jonathan congratulated the winner, President Muhammadu Buhari, thereby calming the tension that was on.
