A former lawmaker Mr. Samson Osagie, has expressed hope that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will regain Edo State on September 19.
He predicted an overwhelming victory for the party’s candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, at the polls.
The former Minority Whip Leader of the House of Representatives who spoke yesterday with reporters at the APC national secretariat in Abuja said the defection of Governor Godwin Obaseki to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not stop APC from regaining the state.
He said: “As of today, the clamor for change of government in Edo State is high and we are confident that on September 19, APC and its candidate will win the election.”
Osagie said Obaseki’s victory at the polls in 2016 was not based on his political antecedent, but because of the outstanding performance of his predecessor.
