The Peoples Democratic Party has noted that it will employ the support of the Edo people to win the September 19 governorship election in Edo State against the federal might that may be employed by the All Progressives Congress and its governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
The PDP campaign council in Edo State during a press briefing in Port Harcourt noted that the defection of people into the party is a sign that the party will be victorious in the forthcoming governorship election.
Raymond Dokpesi, while speaking on behalf of the publicity sub-committee debunked the allegations that the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki paid the sum of fifteen billion to the PDP to procure the governorship ticket of the party.
“If the APC is thinking of Federal might, we are thinking of peoples might. Go and check what has been happening in Edo State very clearly; the people have been moving in droves in their thousands from the APC to the PDP in all wards of the state.”
“We have the people firmly and properly in our support and we are confident of the fact that leveraging our direct contacts with the people, our confidence in the people that they will do the needful to get out of the clutches of the failed reign of the APC from Adams Oshiomole to the day when the governor defected to the PDP.”
“I do not know from which of the resources we would have expected Obaseki to have drawn N15b to give to whom. There is no iota of truth in that allegation; it’s a phantom charge and it is part of the known propaganda and lies that that party parades all the time.”
