Edo guber: I will sweep APC candidate into governor’s office – Oshiomhole


Edo North Senator, Adams Oshiomhole has vowed to ensure the victory of Senator Monday Okpebholo, the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate in the September 21 governorship election.

Oshiomhole said he was ready to take up the role of a sweeper to ensure the APC won the governorship election.

He spoke while inaugurating the party’s Campaign Council for the election over the weekend.

The former governor urged residents suffering from flood, whose children sit on bare floors in schools to join in ensuring APC won the governorship election.

According to Oshiomhole: “If it requires me to take the role of a sweeper, I am ready to sweep Senator Monday Okpebholo into office as governor.

“Every member and supporter of the APC is a member of our campaign for genuine change under the leadership of Senator Monday Okpebholo.

“Titles do not matter, every member is a canvasser, every member of our party must work hard to win their units and wards, local government and state.”

Also speaking, the Director General of the APC Campaign Council, Senator Matthew Urhoghide, urged aggrieved members to unite and work for the party’s victory.

He urged aggrieved members to de-emphasize the role of money.

On September 21, people of Edo State will file out and vote for the next governor of the state.

While the APC has Senator Monday Okpebholo as its candidate, PDP has Asue Ighodalo, while Olumide Akpata is the Labour Party’s candidate.
