Nine of those who contested for the gubernatorial ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, have stated that with the emergence of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, flag bearer, APC’s Godwin Obaseki is sure of victory at the poll.
Addressing journalists yesterday on behalf of the others, one of the aspirants, Charles Airhiavbere averred that the PDP is dead on arrival in the state with Pastor Ize-Iyamu as its candidate.
Airhiavbere, while reacting to the condemnation of the APC primaries by two aspirants, Engr Chris Ogienwonyi and Barr Ken Imasuagbon, disclosed that all the 12 gubernatorial aspirants signed an agreement that whoever wins the primaries would be supported by all when they went to Abuja.
“A winner has emerged out of the twelve of us, so, we are all obliged to collapse our structure behind him to ensure victory for APC in the September 19 election. This is the position of nine of us who participated in the primaries,” he said.
