Chairman » , John Odigie-Oyegun has said that the party will win the September 10 governorship elections in Edo State.
Oyegun also said that the APC will take control of the states in the South-East and South-South and dethrone the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the
All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in both areas.
“Once that is done, then we will venture out to bring home our brothers in the South East and in the South-South to join this great crusade to salvage our nation, to establish a new way of doing things; to establish new ethics, to let our people know that there is a difference between right and wrong, to change this country from the trajectory, on a permanent basis; we are already in it, to change it irreversibly from the destructive trajectory into which it was plunged,” he said over the weekend while inaugurating the APC’s National Campaign Council on the Edo election.
“So, my charge to this committee, the campaign council, made up of very eminent leaders of this party, each one specially chosen for this assignment, is not that they should deliver Edo State.
“It is a lot more than that. It is that they should deliver Edo State with a margin that tells the whole story. So, as you get down to your assignment, consider also that it is in a sense a mid-term election.
“So, it is an election that is important to us that we win very convincingly, not just win, but win convincingly. So, my charge to you is to go out there in a coordinated, close working relationship with the local election committee to strategize, raise the resources, talk to whosoever is necessary to talk to, some of the details of which, of course, we will discuss at a very first meeting to ensure that the kind of victory that our party deserves is in fact recorded,” he added.
The APC will be represented by Godwin Obaseki in the governorship elections.
