Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not have any value in the state, let alone the country.
The governor said the All Progressives Congress won’t be distracted by the PDP and its many agents, who he say were lighter than a loaf of bread.
Asserting that the party will commence campaigns for the election in earnest now that the party’s flag bearer had emerged in the person of Godwin Obaseki, the governor said he will not lose sleep over PDP’s boast of winning the state.
His words: “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 Federal, we defeated them with all their Federal might. So there is no PDP as long as I am concerned.
“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 twenty years in this state. Even when you ask young boys and girls in the state, who is responsible for this bad school they 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.
