BENIN—AN All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship aspirant for this year governorship election in Edo State, Mr Peter Esele has called on party faithful to insist on due process that will enthrone a credible and result oriented candidate for the party during its governorship primaries.
He insisted that any aspirant, who seeks to emerge through the back door, obviously has nothing to offer, saying “I say so without any apology.”
Esele, who addressed members of the Edo Forum-Lagos, promised that if elected as the governor of Edo State, “My three throng campaign vision will be, education, culture and agriculture. In the face of a daunting financial meltdown that has befallen our dear country, we must be extremely circumspect of all the aspirants including myself. Edo State cannot afford the luxury of a flamboyant or extravagant governor.
“I will ensure that our education is prioritized towards technical and practical excellence, building of mechanic village for enhanced and efficient service delivery for automobile owners and investors, sustainable youth empowerment.
“With people working painfully to meet their tax obligations, Edo people needs a governor that can open our agriculture and industrial space, taking advantage of our strategic geography in the comity of states in Nigeria.”
