The defectors were led by Dr. Andrew Ojiemhenkele, and they were received by the Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki as well as the party chairman in the state, Barr. Anselm Ojezua.

Presenting the party’s symbol, a broom, to Dr. Ojiemhenkele at an enlarged meeting of the APC in Benin City, the state capital, Obaseki said: “I have not formally received anybody into the party, but the chairman wants me to do it because of the calibre of person we are receiving. I have a lot of confidence in him and just listening to him, his commitment to his people and politics, I realised that this is someone we should have in our party.”

The governor noted that the state chapter of the party was working to build a strong platform, noting that the outcome of the 2019 elections will show that Edo is an APC state.

“He has brought decency, discipline, and transparency into governance. Esan South East council has 10 wards and we are assuring you that we will be victorious at the polls.”
