Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, has appealed to voters in Edo State to support the candidate of the party, Godwin Obaseki, in the September 10 governorship election.
The national chairman reportedly said this was necessary in order to consolidate on the numerous achievements of Governor Adams Oshiomhole.
The former Edo State governor also joined the APC campaign train to the palace of the Aidonogie of South-Ibie, Alhaji Aliyu Danesi, where he appreciated the monarch for endorsing Obaseki.
He said, “Edo State suffered so much mismanagement under the Peoples Democratic Party.
“What we need is a responsible government that will sustain the ongoing development projects of the current administration and actualise the industrialisation, youth employment and women empowerment agenda that will lead to a prosperous and sustainable future for all Edo people.”
The national chairman, who also spoke at the palace of the Odionwere and Head of Jagbe, Ferdinand Etakhine, in company with Oshiomhole, promised that the APC would provide equal development across the state. Both Obaseki and his running mate, Philip Shaibu, were present at the tour.
Odigie-Oyegun also assured that Obaseki would complete the Jagbe-Agbede road, which was allegedly abandoned by the PDP-led Federal Government.
Odigie-Oyegun, who spoke while addressing the residents of Jagbe in the Agbede community of Etsako-East Local Government Area of the state, explained that Edo people must be led by a responsible government.
