ASABA/Nigeria: The newly elected Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC in Delta State, Chief Cyril Ogodo has assured former governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole of the commitment of the newly elected Exco and delegates from Delta State to vote for him as National Chairman of APC at the forthcoming June 23rd convention and thereafter, work with him for the progress of the Party.
In a statement released and personally signed by him on Wednesday, Chief Ogodo stated that Gov Oshiomhole is the kind of leader APC needs at this time.
According to him, “Gov Oshiomhole is a competent, strong, aggressive and well focused individual. He exhibited these traits successfully as President of NLC and as Governor of Edo State for eight years.
“He turned Edo into a star state even with very little resources at his disposal. President Buhari made an excellent choice endorsing him and we in Delta are excited and grateful to Mr President for choosing our own.
“Gov Oshiomhole will sustain the progress made so far by APC and will convert the Party into a united and strong election winning platform. Gov Oshiomhole is good for APC nationally and is good for APC South South. His election winning prowess is the panacea we need to bring the South South out of PDP into the APC fold, he stated further.
Chief Ogodo, however, warned detractors of Delta State APC to desist from their mischievous ways stating that those who are trying so hard to put a wedge between Delta State APC and Gov Oshiomhole have failed even before they started.
Adding that; “Delta and Edo are one Bendel, what is good for Edo is good for Delta,” Ogodo averred.
