Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in Edo state have said the chances of the party clinching the Sept. 10 governorship ticket was dependent on who emergences as candidate at its June 20primaries.
The leaders who made the submission include two-time LGA chairman, Monday Osaigbovo, Mr. Monday Ihama, former PDP state secretary, former Assembly member and Commissioner, Hon. Abbas Jega and Hon. Victor Emuagbor in separate interviews with newsmen on Sunday in Benin.
They said the June 20 party primaries would be free, fair and credible because the delegates were better informed to follow their hearts rather than their minds.
“They now know they have to put the party in the hands of a credible person by voting for credibility for the growth of the state rather than for mediocrity that will take us back to bondage,’’ Osaigbovo said.
The leaders, who described its party aspirant, Chief Solomon Edebiri as “Mr No stain’’, a tested, trusted and humble personality would be better entrusted with such huge responsibility.
Edebiri had presented his interest of expression form to Journalists at the NUJ centre in at the weekend in Benin.
The aspirant had promised to work in synergy with labour unions and the private sector in his planned quest to industrialize the state.
He said his planned agenda of ideology of peace and development would translate into human capacity building, growth of the economy and improved well-being of the people of the state.
