All Progressives Congress, APC, has said
the massive turnout of crowd at its Campaign flagooff for the gubernatorial election in Edo State is a sign that the electorates in the State have decided for its Governorship Candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
APC added that it was deeply humbled by the massive turnout, and support the people of Edo state extended to the Party’s National Campaign Council during Saturday’s campaign flagoff of its governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and running mate, Gani Audu ahead of the September 19 governorship election in the state.
In a statement issued Sunday by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, the pary noted that the Edo electorates have sent a clear message on the governance direction of the state – a progressive one which puts the people’s welfare and interests first
The Party thanked the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II for the very warm reception and hospitality extended to its leaders during the courtesy visit to the Palace, while praying the Almighty God continues to grant the revered Oba of Benin the wisdom to guide the good people of Edo state on the right and progressive path.
Earlier, President Muhammadu Buhari in endorsing the APC governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu charged the APC leadership to prosecute and win the Edo State governorship election using all legal and constitutional means by avoiding the pitfalls that affected the party’s victory in Rivers, Zamfara and Bayelsa states during and after the 2019 elections.
APC stated that it intended to achieve this charge by the President with the new and positive party disposition under the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker Committee.
“We congratulate the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker Committee for successful bringing together party ranks as a repositioned, united and happy family in total support of the APC governorship candidate.
“Going forward, the task before us is to collectively showcase our evident people-focused development records to the good people of Edo state.
“As articulated in Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s six-point ‘SIMPLE agenda’ that stands for Security, Infrastructural development, Manpower development, Public Private Partnership, Leadership and Employment creation, the APC campaign will be issue-based and devoid of the do-or-die rhetoric and scare tactics the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is deploying ahead of the September 19 governorship election.
“We stand with the good people Edo state that votes must count and the will of the Edo electorate must prevail,” the APC stressed
