FORMER Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governor’s Forum, Mr. Osaro Onaiwu has picked the governorship ticket of the All Progress Grand Alliance APGA.

He emerged the candidate of the party in the party primary conducted in Benin where he polled 372 votes. Onaiwu had earlier indicated interest in contesting on the ticket of the PDP but pulled out at the last minute.

Speaking on his plans for the campaign, he said: “I am willing to serve my people, and we have come up with our four pillars, which are security, trade, and Commerce, agriculture and industrialization. Once we can achieve those four, then we are home and dry.

“Dangote has come to Edo state to invest because Edo is peaceful, we will improve on what the incumbent governor has done so that we will accelerate development to our people.”

“APGA will take over the state, it is a new dawn, I don’t have a god father, God is my god father. If you look at the candidates of the two other political parties they have a god father but God is my god father. I will lead my people where there is milk and honey” he stated.
