Edo 2016: Vote for APC, Oyegun urges electorates


The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has appealed to the people of Edo State to vote massively for the party’s governorship candidate, Mr. Godwin Obaseki in the 10 September governorship poll in the state.

He said voting for the APC would help to consolidate the gains of Governor Adams Oshiomhole’s unparalleled achievements in the last seven and half years.

Oyegun made the call in Benin City on Thursday in a statement while debunking opposition’s claims that Oshiomhole administration did not achieve anything substantial but robustly rich in propaganda.

He questioned the PDP’s moral rights to criticise APC government in the state after wasting the people’s time and resources for ten years.

“Obviously, the PDP is suffering from crisis of confidence and self-destruction because they had 10 good years to develop Edo State at a time the federal allocations due to the state was highest, coupled with ecological funds that ran into several billion of naira.

“The cry that APC under Governor Oshiomhole did not fix all the roads, hospitals and schools across the state by the opposition party lacks credibility because no government can solve all the problems of the people wholesale.

“Granted that Governor Oshiomhole made some genuine mistakes, he is still the best we have produced since the history of this state and region as governor and those who doubt this assertion are those who have their memories to forget the history of our people.

“That is where continuity and solid development comes in. I am convinced that no one is better qualified than Mr. Godwin Obaseki to be the governor of the state after learning the role of leadership and governance process in the last seven and a half years under Governor
Oshiomhole’s leadership,” he said.
