Edo State Executive Committee of All Progressives Congress (APC) hereby congratulates the First Executive Governor of Edo State, Chief John Odigie- Oyegun as he emerges the choice of the National caucus of the party for the office of the National Chairman.
At a meeting presided over by its Chairman, Barrister Anslem Ojezua, the State Executive acclaimed Chief Oyegun as a reliable democrat, an indomitable freedom fighter and a seasoned administrator.
The Executive Commended APC National caucus for its sagacity and meticulousness in the screening of candidates for the foremost leadership position of the party.
It appealed to the three other candidates dropped by the Caucus, namely, Chief Tom Ikimi equally from Edo State, Dr Sam Sam Jaja from Rivers State and Chief Timipre Sylva, all of whom are eminently qualified for the exalted office, to co-operate with Chief Oyegun.
Edo APC acknowledged the efforts of Chief Oyegun in promoting peace and unity in the party even at a time that the recently defected cabal of mercenaries attempted to instigate him against Comrade Governor Adams Oshiomhole.
The State Executive equally commended Governor Adam Oshiomhole for his objective role in the process that led to the Caucus’ choice of one of the two Edo indigenes who aspired to the National Chairmanship.
Edo APC appeals to all delegates to the ongoing convention to endorse the choice of the national caucus.
Comrade Godwin Erhahon
State Publicity Secretary.
