(NEWS): We will defeat PDP – Oshiomhole
Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has declared that the Action Congress of Nigeria,ACN, had put in place all strategies to defeat the Peoples Democratic Party in the April 20 local government election.
Speaking to ACN supporters at Ehor and Igueben in his campaign tour for the poll, Oshiomhole said, “Our weapon against Peoples Democratic Party,PDP,is service to the people.”
“We work for the people because PDP has a history of working against the people; elevate the people because PDP philosophy is to bring the people down.”
“We will invest in education because PDP believes in privatising education, investing in the building of roads because PDP believes in under-developing the people. Everything that they are opposed to that is good, we will do.”
Addressing the candidates, the Governor stated that, “We have come to remind you that another election is around the corner. We need men and women who are ready to serve the people at the grassroots.
“Our candidates must imbibe the philosophy of ACN, which is service to the people.”
“We have also decided that nobody elected as a Chairman under our platform will be allowed to govern in absentia. You cannot be a visiting chairman,” he warned.
“You must be resident local government chairman. That way, he does not need to be told that there is no light. He does not need to be told that the transformer is bad. What you don’t know you can’t solve.”
The Governor assured voters in the local areas that government would complete all ongoing projects in the areas.
He later presented the Igueben council candidate, Mr. Ashuma Asemota and Mr. Alari Roland of Uhunmwode local government areas as candidates of the ACN.
