Minority leader of the House of Representatives, and member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Leo Ogor, has boasted that the party will sack the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, government in Edo State in next month’s governorship election.
According to him, the victory at the state level will propel the party to regain control at the federal government in the general elections in 2019.
Ogor speaking at the governorship campaign rally of the PDP held at Okada, in Ovia Northeast local government area of the state, said in the last one and half years of its rule at federal level, the APC has brought more hardship upon Nigerians than imagined.
He said the party not only failed to fulfill any of its promises, it has plunged the nation’s economy into distress with all its attendant calamities upon the hapless citizenry who never bargained for what is happening to their fatherland.
“We assure everybody that when we take over power in Edo State, we will meet you at the point of your needs. We will be there for you. Let us do away with this government that promised a change that it cannot fulfil. They have failed on all their promises and deserve to be rejected”.
Also speaking at the rally, former member of the House of Representatives, Mr Friday Itulah, said that APC must be voted out because like in Edo State the “government of one man one vote”, has turned into a governor for himself alone, adding that this was unacceptable.
Hon Omosede Igbinedion, the member representing Ovia at the National Assembly in the same vein said, “I can tell you that Governor Oshiomhole has not touched Ovia since he took office. Since he gave Ovia nothing, we will not give him anything. When we go to vote we will vote PDP”.
The party’s gubernatorial candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu told the crowd at the rally that having tasted of PDP and the APC, Edo people have a good choice to make of the two political parties.
Flanked by his running mate, Mr John Yakubu who is a former council chairman for Esan Northeast local government, he said, “let me assure you that when we come in by the grace of God, there will be transformation in all aspects of Edo State”.
