Oshiomhole unveils APC campaign council for Edo gov’ship election

Edo North lawmaker, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that every member and supporter of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state is a member of the campaign council which will usher in the leadership of Monday , the party’s flag-bearer.

Oshiomhole stated this on Friday at the inauguration of the campaign council of the party for September 21 governorship election.

The former Edo State governor urged party members to work for Okpebholo’s victory.

Oshiomhole said, “I am saying here that every member and supporter of the APC is a member of the campaign for genuine change under the leadership of Senator Monday Okpebholo.

“I am the chairman of the campaign council, but titles do not matter. I urge every member of the party in the state to work hard to win their units and wards. Every member is a canvasser,” he added

He further stated that if it required him to take the role of a sweeper, he was ready to sweep Okpebholo into office as governor.

The Director General of the Campaign Council, Senator Matthew Urhoghide, urged members to work hard as the task of defeating a government in power was huge.

He also urged party members to resolve their differences and work for the victory of the party and de-emphasize the role of money.

Earlier, State Chairman of the APC, Emperor Jarrett Tenebe, said the late Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia, Prof. Ambrose Alli and Adams Oshiomhole were governors who provided good governance for the state.

He stated that Governor Godwin Obaseki was supposed to continue from where Oshiomhole stopped but he failed, adding that the result is the flooding Benin was witnessing and the lack of red-roof schools across the state.

He promised that by the time Okpebholo and Dennis Idahosa come on board, those things would come back, expressing the hope that the campaign council led by Senator Urhoghide would work hard to deliver victory to the APC.
