14 July 2016, 15:17

Benin City - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo will inaugurate campaign for the September 10 governorship election in the state on Saturday July 16.

Gov Adams Oshiomhole announced this on Wednesday at a stakeholders meeting at the Government House in Benin.

He urged all party members to turn up en masse for the event which would take place at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium.

Oshiomhole appealed to party members to ensure that development issues were brought to the centre of political contestation.

He noted that the full import of continuity was to ensure that the same philosophy of bringing development to the state as well as the unity of the state was not in doubt.

Oshiomhole assured that the party would not take anything for granted but would campaign across the nook and cranny of the state.

He also assured that there was no contestation between the National Chairman of the party, Odigie Oyegun and himself over the choice of the party’s standard bearer in the state.

Oshiomhole explained that the strength of leadership was to know imperfection and have the will to correct it.

The governor urged all the party members to ensure regular attendance at party meetings as there was the need to live by positive examples.

Godwin Obaseki, the APC standard bearer promised to work for the people of the state if elected to ensure that the state was taken to the next level.

Obaseki said he was humbled by the decision of the other aspirants who had contested the June 18 primaries with him to work with him.

He noted that without loyal party members, his victory wouldn't have been possible, and commended them for their steadfastness and faith in him.

He named Philip Shaibu as his running mate.
