A quick look into history points to the fact that this state has been a major contributor to the success of the Nigerian project, a status of glory that can never be denied us.

Buhari should seek help outside APC – Okwesilieze Nwodo

So these two things that would have done with e-registration would have brought membership to the party, it would have guaranteed financial independence to the party. The third thing, I tried to do for the party was to bring back internal democracy.

THE Onojie of Opoji and Vice 
	Chairman, Edo State Council of 
	Traditional Rulers and Chiefs, His Royal Highness (HRH), Ehidiamen Aidonojie 1,

Why Anenih is fighting me – Edo traditional ruler

Anenih is not a traditional ruler and as such he was advised not to dabble into matters concerning the traditional institution. My being the first Vice chairman is by the blessing of the traditional rulers in the state after Esan traditional rulers have nominated me. So it is not Anenih’s making. He should not drag us into politics and he should mind his business.

We did that because we have never had it so good in Edo state until Oshiomhole’s APC came.

Wike’s weak side in real life – Tam-George, Commissioner for Information

Governor Wike has taken concrete conciliatory steps to work with everyone, even those in the opposition. He has an office and a special adviser on inter-party relations. The Governor’s intention is to keep his ears and doors open for cooperation and collaboration. But the APC’s response has always been to slam the door shut. They seem to be unable to cooperate, even in the interest of the State. It’s an unacceptable behaviour in a democracy.
