He concluded his remarks by thanking the group for its endorsement and urged its members to take the message   to every nook, household and cranny in the senatorial district.

Speaking earlier, the coordinator   of the ‘Edo South 7 – 77 – 19’ Initiative, Engr Ebenezer Omokpo,   affirmed that the group was a nonpartisan think-tank of accomplished professionals who have been meeting for a year to take decision on charting   a path for Edo South in the 2019 senatorial election as the district has suffered from successive under-representation, hence the need to decisively reverse this trend.

He affirmed that the group had taken a cursory look at the pedigrees of the different candidates in the race and has come to the conclusion that Dr Ese Owie was not only the most qualified, but also has the vision and comprehensive policy agenda needed to represent   the district   in the next dispensation.
