The Chairman of Edo Gubernatorial Campaign Council under All Progressives Congress (APC), Gov. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has revealed the reasons why his party would win the Edo governorship election slated for a few weeks to come.
He made the disclosure on TVC News, Tuesday, assuring that since the incumbent governor of the state, Mr Godwin Obaseki, who recently joined the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), from APC failed to deliver to his people, he (Obaseki) would be shocked at the polls.
Arguing that, “The art of governance is to provide social and economic development, infrastructural facilities, peace and stability. But all of these are lacking in Edo state under Mr Obaseki.”
“What has he done to show the Edo people that he deserves re-election? He has 53 cases in courts and is busy with in-fight with his people.
“Apart from all such litigation he then crossed carpeted to another party, and abandoned the governance of his people,” Ganduje challenged.
He then challenged that, APC gubernatorial candidate Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, is a man of God, whose commitment in the service of his people, made it deserving for all his people to follow him to APC, “…he has his people in his heart,” he argued.
“When he came to our party he came with all his people. But when governor Obaseki cross carpeted to PDP he was followed only by his cabinet. Because his people didn’t see any reason why he should be followed,” he observed.
While assuring that, APC would play in total compliance with the rule of the game, “The Electoral Act. We shall also strive hard and play also in compliance with COVID-19 protocols,” he said.
