A A total of 2582 delegates were accredited to vote in the governorship primaries of the All Progressive Congress in Edo State.
These are the number of persons that presented themselves for accreditation out of a 2771 names on the delegate list.
Former lawmaker, Hon Razak Bello-Osagie described the party primaries as a show of the party’s democratic values.
He said, “This is internal democracy of the party. So, I do not expect, quite naturally, any rancorous situation. Imaginary boundaries within the party should be removed so that we can have a formidable platform for the general elections. I do not see any reason we should be dissipating energies on those things that will not reinforce the integrity of what we represent as change agents.
“We need a candidate whose activities are predicated on vision, purpose, integrity, leadership and service. It is a family affair, so I expect that the process will go on peacefully to the glory God Almighty and to the benefit of humanity.
Agbomehere had earlier said he would accept the outcome of the primaries as a loyal partyman that supports unity of the party.
Hon Philip Shaibu representing Estako Federal Constituency said, “That is how I see Obaseki, as one person that will take such top decisions and will continue with the infrastructural development that the governor has laid.”
Eyyeahhhh deputy governor just take it easy.It’s normal deputies hardly inherit the seat in Nigeria.
Umeh of ebonyi did
Abubakar, but why?
@ Abayomi Olaore, it is because of our corrupt nature. Deputies know a lot and have also endured a lot. Letting them win could mean probe and exposure of covered crimes.
@ Emeka Ezeike. You ought to know that almost all vice and deputies don’t have full opinion in the affairs of the boss. They are mostly errand boys in Nigeria. History should tell you that.
Chidiebere Chimara,Exactly bro…almost all of them are ceremonial vice & deputies, @ lorkyosu,what do u mean by na lie? Pls elaborate more or get off this forum… That’s men’s forum kid…
What do u mean.. This how you people miss it… Governance is not a place one feels out of sentiment or next in line that he or she is most fit for the job… Deputies are not next in line OK… Please keep your amateur ideas to yourself
Deputy for good eight years.Is enough he shld allow another person
@ John. I can’t even figure anything out of ur matured comments.
With Adams Oshiomhole’s dream fulfilled in Edo state by making sure his preferrde candidate emerged at the just concluded Apc’s guber primaried. The corrupt, maladministration and impunity will continued from where he’ll stop. God forbide… Edo people must not allow that again, no matter who is behind Obaseki.
U re not from that side so dnt believe u
Side or no side,”the future is now!! Poi is d man for the job
Gbam, wailers go hug transformer
I know one day OSHIOMHOLE will confess
What corruption are you talking about? Is the one that destroyed Edo state under Chief Lucky igbinedion or the one fixing roads, schools, hospitals and putting the state in the right track under Oshiomhole? If it’s the latter you are talking about, I would rather we continue in that corruption.
What a lost sheep you are, do you know the road to edo @ all? Comrade gov have done so well only blind ones can’t see it !
There’s no way 4 ur pipeline destroy party in Edo state. All we’re saying Edo state is Godwin oooooo. Edo state don get alert Godwin oooooo . Godwin oooooo
Adams Oshiomhole’s administration is a disaster type of administration which we the Edos never prayed for its replication again in the history of Edo state!
Abisad, who are u 2 speak 4 d good pple of Edo? Whn d pple tinks contrary 2 ur assertions?
As long as l has what it take to speak for the good people of Edo state. I must not shy away from doing that. Oshiomhole or any other person cannot claim Edo more than me! I knew Godwin Obaseki more than Oshiomhole. Even Papa Obaseki, l have been privilaged to work with him when Godwin was still in the secondary school in the 70s.
EDO PDP has turn to hungry lion, they have be jobless for 8years. but EDO STATE is not their best mill , backward never.
PDP is coming back to reclaim Edo state from these inexperieced politician before further damage is done to the economic and infrastructural decay currently wtinessing of the Oshiomhole’s 8 years tenure.
It is a tradition in Nigeria dat if a dog is to be supported as candidate by an incumbent governor he will surely win d election .
Pdp will win d governor sit mark my word
Oshomale is still de gov
That is to say that APC is out of Edo State,if Oshiomole ordains him!

Ndi ara party
HaaaaAAaa, the man too fine
When OBJ pick jonathan as his choice to replace him.
OBJ later regretted it publicly in words ‘d series of public letters !.
Tinubu pick Fashola to replace him; Tinubu was able to stand shoulder high !.
If Oshiomhole also see some qualities in Godwin Obaseki ‘d prefer him to others.
There shouldn’t be anything to start crying about on such development.
Those who are not satisfied are free to go and hang.
It’s up to them; as heaven won’t fall !.
Without pdp edo state’s nothing,,,,,,,,
Those who defected to APC with the intention of securing the party’s ticket had bloody noses. They want to reap where they did not sow. Osho Baba, well done!
Now Edo people have another chance to rewrite the wrongs from those who want to kill the state with borrowing millions of dollars without thinking of tomorrow

Ugly. Kwaaa is dia no handsome Edo face again? Lol
I hear so, but I also understand that he has case to answer before the efcc
Congratulation. Wish you success at the polls. Surely you will build on Adams Oshiomole achievements and even surpass it lJN. Edo State is forever Free. It was hard fight, fought and won. It can only be God. The opposing forces were massive, employed the most vicious Campaign ever witnessed in Nigeria Political History against Gov Adams Oshiomole but God delivered him. It was not easy but God looking at the suffering of Edo masses delivered it completely and as it stands PDP is no longer exist in Edo
y is dat edo state governors are always very ugly
