In a statement, Ojezua said “the Governorship Primaries of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State on Saturday, 18th June 2016 has been the most successful Primaries ever conducted by the APC in Nigeria. It was peaceful, transparent, free and fair.
“We remain eternally grateful to all Delegates ably led by the Comrade Governor, Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole for the patience, perseverance and outstanding conduct throughout the process which lasted almost 24 hours.

“The result of the election is a clear indication that the APC in Edo state is strong and united contrary to the falsehood earlier peddled in the media that Edo State APC was in crisis.

“I have this morning inaugurated a Reconciliation Committee headed by Prince Malik Afegbua (member BOT) to reach out to all those who may have been affected one way or the other by processes leading to and including the primaries.

“This is in order to position the party to confront the general election which comes up on the 10th of September 2016.”
