Edward urged the aggrieved candidate of the last presidential election to accept their fate and re-strategise their political career rather than working on the sidelines to disrupt democracy.

As reported by Vanguard, Edward said:

“The country belongs to all of us. The resources Asiwaju will superintend belong to all of us. We are not against anybody, but we are against such madness and the attempt to bring out a factional president in the country.
“Having said that, I want to inform us that we are going to start a vigil. We are going to hold it on the streets of Abuja until Asiwaju is sworn in. We are going to stay until the day that baton is given to him and until he is announced the sitting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This is democracy and this is a country we must protect."

Edward, however, warned those plotting to sabotage democracy to refrain from their plans as it would not be profitable for them.

He said:

“No one group or persons nor party should act as sovereigns, they are not and will never be. Hence we call on their sponsors to refrain from this unstable, insane and undemocratic act that will only expose them as political neophytes."
