Governor-Adams-Oshiomhole-of-Edo-State Says – PDP is “dead on arrival”



He said the absence of the PDP governors at

Speaking in Benin on Wednesday, July 14,
during a stakeholders’ meeting of the All
Progressives Congress (APC), Oshiomhole said
“the campaign of the Peoples Democratic
Party for the forthcoming governorship
election in the state is dead on arrival.

person of note to present a tattered flag, our
own national chairman will be around, as a
former governor, a former federal permanent
secretary and a national chairman of the
governing party and all the APC governors will
be here to present the flag to our candidate.”

levies and worst of all, deceit,” the State
Publicity Secretary, Chris Nehikhare, said on
Thursday, July 14.

However, the embattled Chairman of the PDP,

he submitted to the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) is the legitimate
flagbearer of the party in the Edo
governorship election.
