Edo State Boils As Oshiomhole Returns Back To ‘Government House’, Mobilizes Major Support

Ahead of the Etsako Federal Constituency bye-election, former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, over the weekend, returned to the campaign field, to participate in the flagging-off campaign, which took place at the Headquarters of Etsako East, Etsako Central, and Etsako West Local Government Areas of the State.

Oshiomhole, led other All Progressives Congress, APC, Chieftains to the campaign ground, with several calls on the people to vote for the party’s candidate, Honourable Johnson Oghuma, in the January 28, 2017 Etsako Federal Constituency bye-election in the State.

At the campaign rally, which attracted a large crowd, the State Chairman of the APC, Barrister Anslem Ojezua, who commended the people of the area for their continued support and believe in the party, said a vote for Oghuma, is like a thousand votes for more and better representation, while revealing that their votes for Godwin Obaseki, as Governor, has started paying off within a short period in the State.

He noted, that Honourable Philip Shaibu (Deputy Governor), who represented the Constituency before, had set a standard.

Oshiomhole, Shaibu, and Honourable Damian Lawani, were among those that canvassed support for the APC candidate, as someone that can represent the Constituency so well.

In his remarks, Governor Obaseki, disclosed that the choice of Oghuma, is the best for the people of the area, and Edo State in general, as he is not going there to begin the curve of learning legislation as a new chapter, but to immediately join in the deliberation and passage of the 2017 budget presented to the house.

According to him, the APC-led government in the State, has started executing developmental projects in some areas of the State, pointing out that what the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said was not possible, APC says its possible.

While urging the Etsako people to repose confidence in Oghuma, the Governor, also thanked them for supporting the APC in the last Governorship election.

Responding, the APC Standard Bearer, Oghuma, disclosed that he would attract development to the area, through deliberation and debates, emphasizing that Shaibu, had already laid the solid foundation for him to build on.‎
