We’ll Retain Edo Governorship Seat, APC Boasts

APC-Logo1The South-south zonal chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has reaffirmed its belief in winning the September 10, 2016 governorship elections in Edo state.
The party made the assertion in a statement by the National Vice Chairman, South-south of the APC, Prince Hilliard Eta on Friday.
Mr. Eta said the party would leverage on the performance of the Governor Adam Oshiomhole led government to retain the state in the forthcoming elections.
“Governor Adams Oshiomhole’s performance index in the last eight years has continued to be a reference point in most development roundtable across the country and the Edo people realising that their state under the APC leadership has been a far departure from the bastardized past where the PDP held sway, are certainly going to renew their mandate for the APC come September”, the national vice chairman was quoted as saying in the statement signed by his media aide, Mr Bassey Ita, and made available to journalists in Calabar, Cross River State.
He said in view of this, the party will hold a solidarity rally to galvanize the support base of the Edo APC and the Oshiomhole administration.
“The solidarity rally, which is slated for Friday, 3rd June in Benin City, Edo state capital will attract stakeholders of the party from all the six states of the zone”, he said.
The statement further indicated that major stakeholders, including Ministers and other principal appointees of the federal government, serving and former governors and deputy governors, Board of Trustees Members and National Executive Committee members from the zone, will grace the event.
It also said state chairmen and members of the Zonal Executive Committee of the party are expected to be in attendance at the solidarity rally.
