As the Edo State gubernatorial race draws closer, Governor Godwin Obaseki has picked his nomination and expression of interest forms to participate in June, 2020 primary election of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
An Abuja based group, Obaseki Mandate Forum OMF, picked the forms on behalf of Governor Obaseki in the Federal Capital Territory on Wednesday.
However, shortly after picking the forms, the Chairman of the Forum, Chief Nathaniel Momoh told journalists that most of the members of the group are card-carrying members of APC in Edo state
He said; “We are confident that the will of the people will manifest in an unmistakable term on June 22 when our party conducts its primary for the standard flag bearer in the governorship race.
“We are convinced that no other name among those whose names are been touted qualifies as the incumbent and performing governor, Godwin Obaseki. We are optimistic that his pedigree will make him emerge winner to lead the party to the Democratic contest in which he will again emerge winner to continue to boost the state revenue and infrastructure.”
The OMF urged all Edo people and residents “to join hands in the crusade through their votes, campaign or support in whatever shade possible”.
