Ahead of the 19th September, 2020 Edo State Governorship election, the All Progressive Congress (APC) has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is intimidated by its National Campaign Council.
The APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena who noted this in a statement on Friday, stated that Edo is proudly an APC state, and the PDP is “up to their usual, diversionary, baseless and theatrical allegations”.
Nabena disclosed that APC has no interest in rolling in the mud with the PDP and engaging them in their “senseless and drunken tirade”.
According to him, “We understand the PDP is intimidated by the quality, depth and political sagacity of the APC National Campaign Council deployed by the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee to organise a formidable campaign structure to ensure success of the APC and our candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu during the election.
“Edo state is not dubbed the Heartbeat of the Nation for nothing. The Edo electorate is sensible, sophisticated and progressive. The focus of the APC is to display to the Edo electorate our pro-people credentials, infrastructure/development track records, social investments, wealth creation initiatives among others which is being replicated across APC states.
“APC is a party that fiercely advocates, practices and defends the principle of “One person, one vote”. Come September 19 every valid vote must count.
“We urge the PDP to concentrate on their deadbeat and empty campaign instead of the comic it has turned itself to. Edo is proudly an APC state”, he said.
