The momentum for the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket to contest the 2024 governorship election in Edo State has picked, and the State Deputy Chairman, Mr. Jarrett Tenebe, as a result, has cautioned officials of the party against endorsing aspirants. He warned that anyone who flout the directive would be sanctioned for their action.

Tenebe handed the warning yesterday, October 4, 2023 in Benin City, when the State Working Committee of the party received Hon. Ehiozuwa Johnson Agbonayinma, an APC governorship aspirant at the party’s secretariat.

The deputy chairman told Agbonayinma that he has started well by coming to inform the party of his ambition after his quiet consultations.

“The best thing is what you have done today. You can now talk to our people in the various local governments. Let our people know about the various MoUs signed by the Obaseki Government without any work done, they will form the basis for campaign, draw their attention to neglect of our traditional rulers in the state”, Tenebe told Agbonayinma, adding that: “…from your credentials, you have what it takes to lead.”

Addressing the party executives earlier, Hon. Agbonayinma called for their support for his nomination as candidate of the party, saying that he has what it takes to govern the state, having been mentored by Comrade governor Adams Oshiomhole, who he said, performed in all the three senatorial districts of the state without sentiments.

“This state, APC must rescue this state to the glory of Almighty God. I am here to plead, I have what it takes to lead this state, I have the capacity. Support me for the nomination for the governorship.

“I have capacity to do what others have not done”, while promising to carry the party’s executives along in decision making if elected governor.

Agbonayinma used the event to commend President Bola Tinubu for the provision of palliatives to cushion effects of fuel subsidy removal to all states, but ask Edo people to ask Governor Godwin Obaseki why he has refused to commence the distribution of the palliatives to the people of the state. The governorship hopeful vowed that: “They will account for the palliatives.”
