Obaseki: Edo APC Begins Move To Reconcile Aspirants

Following the emergence on Sunday of

Mr. Godwin Obaseki as the candidate of

the All Progressives Congress, APC, for

the September 10 governorship

election in Edo State, the state chapter

of the party has begun moves to

reconcile all aggrieved aspirants and

political groups.

The run-up to the governorship

primaries was charged amid allegations

of permanent voters’ cards (PVCs)

mop-up, bribery of delegates and

perceived preferential treatment for

one of the aspirants, who ended up

clinching the APC ticket, defeating 11

other aspirants in the process.

Those who participated in the primary

included the state Deputy Governor, Dr.

Pius Odubu; a former governor, Prof.

Oserhiemen Osunbor, and a former

Minister of State for Works, Chris


Others are Maj. Gen. Charles Airhiavbere

(retd.), Kenneth Imasuagbon, Peter

Esele, Blessing Agbomere, Emmanuel

Arigbe-Osula, Prof. Ebegue Amadasun,

Austin Emuan and the only female

aspirant, Tina Agbarha.

Obaseki, who is the Chairman of the

Edo State Economic and Strategy Team,

polled a total of 1,618 votes to record a

landslide victory over the other


His closest rival was incumbent Deputy

Governor Odubu, who came a distant

second with 471 votes.

Imasuagbon and Ogiemwonyi had 247

and 137 to settle for third and fourth

places, respectively.

It was observed that some aspirants

including Odubu, stormed out of the

Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City,

venue of the primary before the results

were announced early hours of Sunday

by the Chairman of the APC Primary

Committee and Governor of Katsina

State, Alhaji Bello Masari.

Reacting to the fall out of the primary

election, the Edo APC, in a statement by

its Publicity Secretary, Godwin Erhahon,

on Sunday, pledged to reunite all rival

groups that went into the primary to

ensure victory for the party in the

forthcoming governorship election.

It said: “We appeal to all aggrieved

persons to forgive all pre-primary

offences and cooperate as members of

one family to mobilise voters for the

APC in the forthcoming governorship


“The APC and its government in Edo

State will strive to heal all wounds and

pains, physical and emotional; that may

have been sustained or felt during the

battle for various aspirants towards the


“They should, therefore, humble

themselves and appease those they

may have offended as Obaseki is now

the candidate of the party, no longer

for any group”, the statement added.
