Once again, like the locomotive that never runs out of fuel, the campaign train of the South South Movement today stormed Eyaen community in Ward 06 (Umagbae South) in Uhunmwode Local Government Area where members of the Movement and other teeming members of the All Progressives Congress received over 500 members of the PDP into the APC fold.
Amid a rousing welcome, the decampees pledged their full support for the APC and its candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and his Deputy, Mallam Ganiyu Audu, promising to ensure that they win the ward for the Party.
Speaking at the ceremony as he received the new faithfuls, Hon. Osaro Obazee charged all present to vote for the APC. He made it plain to the people that the dividends of democracy and good governance are adequate welfare, security of lives and basic infrastructures. He stated that it was thus fair for the people to want to see evidence of the substantial work by government in the lives of the people. He told the people that the government of Pastor Ize-Iyamu would be one that would be totally inclusive where everyone will feel the dividends of a working government.
Also speaking at the ceremony was two-time member of House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Samson Osagie. He declared that separating sentiments from politics, the people are yet to see what the outgoing Obaseki’s government has to offer. He told the people that the incoming Pastor Ize-Iyamu’s government would avoid the mistakes of the outgoing government that caused the people of the State so much sufferings.
Present at the ceremony were Hon. Chris Okaeben, Member, Edo State House of Assembly and the Director General, SSM, Engr. Gabriel Iduseri and key officials of the SSM that included Barr. Jude Uyi Ediale ( Director, Information, Publicity & Media); Hon. Maureen Ekhoragbon (JP) (Director of Women Interest/ Affairs, Edo South) and Hon. Vitalis Eshokene (Director, Logistics/Protocol).
The Campaign Train of the South South Movement (SSM) is set to storm more parts of the State in its set out agenda to take the messages of APC and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu to the nooks and crannies of the State that will culminate in the victory of APC and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu come 19th September, 2020.
