While handing over the forms to Edo Unity League Director of Youth Organisation, Mr. Marvis Okharedia, the Deputy National Organizing Secretary, Mr. Nze Chidi Duru, thanked the BoT members for identifying a member of the APC worthy of EULW support.

Members of the Edo Unity League Worldwide are drawn from the open society of the state, cutting across all disciplines and different political affiliations.

A press statement thatvwas shared at the All Progressives Congress (APC) national secretariat in Abuja by EULW reads in part: “Rising from an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Edo Unity League Worldwide (EULW), we have resolved to play a more proactive role in the political leadership process of our dear State, rather than the mundane attitude of armchair criticism of political actions and sociopolitical institutions alike.

“We reached this resolve, in the best interest of the younger generations, who are unable to find role models amongst the multiplicity of political actors of Edo extraction.

“We made this resolve in the best interest of our teeming people who are unable to enjoy any reasonable recompense from their commonwealth that God Almighty has bestowed on our motherland.

“Lamentation is incapable of lifting dead woods from doldrum.

“So, let it be on record, that we, Board of Trustees and Members of Edo Unity League Worldwide purchased these APC gubernatorial forms, at a whopping sum of #50,000,000.00 (Fifty Million Naira), for one of our members, as a seed of good governance investment, in that, it will form a strong ground for us to interrogate Dr. Ernest Afolabl Umakhihe OON, if he wins the party (All Progressives Congress)  ticket in the primaries, and he is eventually returned elected as Governor by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

“For us, we must demonstrate selflessness, and the capacity to be above board in finding a candidate with the right socioeconomic and political pedigree to lead our State from its present primordial prism of a Civil Service State, to a largely capitally productive State, by optimizing all home based demographic variables, for the good of the average Edo-boy and Edo-girl, as well as Edo men and Edo women.

“We are convinced, we made a very good choice, and this democratic contribution by all our members, will altruistically count for the prolific transformation of Edo people from November 2024 by God’s Grace.”
