Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has expressed optimism that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would win the September 2024 gubernatorial election in Edo State.

He stated this during the presentation of the party’s flag to the Edo gubernatorial candidate, Monday Okpebholo, and his running mate, Dennis Idahosa, at the State House, Abuja.

Addressing a gathering of party stalwarts, led by the National Chairman of APC, Abdullahi Ganduje, the president pledged that the party would stand all the way with the candidates.

We are going to work with you. We are going to stand with you like the wall of Gibraltar. That is all I can assure you. The party is supreme but victory is superior and very important.’’

Tinubu commended the leadership of the party in Edo for their efforts toward the success of the candidates and the party.

He particularly lauded Adams Oshiomhole, former governor of the state, for his exemplary leadership.

“Distinguished senator and our flag bearer, we are putting you forward to hold the party in trust for us and achieve victory for us.

“You and your running mate have been described as giant killers, and you have worked tirelessly with the party leadership,’’ he said.

The president, while inviting the APC Edo Woman Leader, Betty Okoebor, to speak on the party’s readiness for the election, reiterated that with the strong support of women, victory is assured.

If the women say we are going to win, then we are good to go because they constitute the largest number of voters and the most dedicated,’’ Tinubu said.

In his remarks, the national chairman of the APC, stressed the unity of purpose within the party toward achieving victory in the election.

‘’Our candidate is soft-spoken, focused, and an achiever. He is a product that is highly marketable, and I am confident that with him, as our flag bearer, we will bring Edo back to our party,’’ Ganduje said.
