We’ll Sink PDP On Sept 10, Oshiomhole Vows
Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State on Sunday vowed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would bury the remains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 10 governorship election in the state.
Besides, he said the ruling party would focus on how to battle other political parties in the state and not the PDP which he said had further been torn apart by several crises at the national level.
Oshiomhole stated this while speaking shortly after the APC governorship primaries held in Benin, the state capital at the weekend which produced Mr. Godwin Obaseki as the party‘s flag bearer for the gubernatorial poll. He pointed out that the APC, would commence campaigns for the election soon with the emergence of the party’s candidate.
According to him, I will not lose sleep over PDP’s boast of winning the state. “Our delegates have spoken. Now the party will hit the ground running. There is no PDP in Edo State. Which of the factions.
We have one body several heads, even when they were in the centre we defeated them with all their federal might. So there is no PDP as long as I am concerned.” Oshiomhole said: “For me they are lighter than a loaf of bread.
But we will go to the election; there are other parties in the state. PDP is not an issue; I don’t think Edo people will forget the crime of PDP in a hurry. Not for the next 20 years in this state.
Even when you ask young boys and girls in the state, who is responsible for this bad school they will say PDP.” “Who is responsible for this bad hospital, they say PDP. Who is responsible for this bad road PDP, who is responsible for this good road, APC; even children know that.
By the time they become 18 they will continue to vote APC and vote against PDP. We have no fear at all. In fact, we will do better in the next election and kick them out of existence,” he declared.
