  65. The Next Governor of Edo State!!!

  66. PDP won the Presidential election in 2015. Right now the three senators from Edo are all PDP & the house of rep. PDP is taking over Edo government house with popular mandate. Even the house of Assembly representing Adams oshimole constituency in the edo state house of Assembly is PDP. At least Edo is going to have an intelligent young gentleman, handsome & articulate governor this time. Oshimole says in 2012 that godfatherism is death in edo but he just foisted his candidate(another ugly cabon) on the people. APC is death in Edo by that act. Watch out for mass decamping from APC to PDP in the days ahead. Pastor Iza-Iyamu all the way. Unstoppable!

  67. PDPigs for Edo. Dreamers, you all are! Go and sit down. APC will defeat your best candidate hands down. People deceiving party, money looters, pipeline vandals, fayose party of Nigeria. Yeye muguns. This time around they will loose their deposits. Lets wait and see.

  68. Abeg governor wey go bid AAU fees down nai we want ooh..
