Ondo State Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa has admonished politicians to shun acts that can threaten peace in the state ahead of 2014 governorship election.

Aiyedatiwa, who said this in his New Year’s Day  statewide broadcast year, stated: “As we are all aware, this is also the year for our governorship election. Expectedly, political activities will gain prominence as we march towards the election.

“However, let me implore all political parties, aspirants, and their followers to eschew violent conduct that can threaten the peace and tranquillity of our state and ensure that they follow strictly the guidelines issued by the electoral umpire.

“The election should be a contest of ideas and choices, not an opportunity to settle political scores or an excuse for calumny.

He said, “As we have promised, we will not only give our late former governor a befitting state burial but will also immortalise his name, just as we will strive to complete all the developmental projects he embarked upon as Governor of Ondo State”.
