…Oyegun decries acrimony
The national chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has told stakeholders of the party in Edo State to close ranks and support the candidature of Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
Speaking yesterday in Abuja, Oyegun said, “as the party prepares for the September 10, 2016 governorship election in Edo State, I call on all aspirants, party leaders, stakeholders and teeming members of our great party to close ranks and unite as a strong political fighting force behind the candidature of Mr. Obaseki for a landslide victory.
“The request by the aspirants was that the Edo State APC governorship election primaries should be transparent, free, fair and credible. This, the party achieved creditably during the primaries.
“Going forward, we should avoid triumphalist actions and avoid creating new stresses within the party. We should all seek to reunify the party to face the September 10, 2016 governorship election,” he said.
