BENIN – Chief Dan Osi Orbih, Edo State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday declared that the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, is already campaigning for the PDP in the state through their abysmal performance in government, pointing out that the PDP is ready to take the state from them.
Orbih who was addressing PDP faithful after receiving honorary award at Afemai declaration of the PDP Edo North Senatorial District said the party has done well even in the face of intimidation.
“The task in our hand is simple, the APC are the one campaigning for PDP. APC is an expired drug and we must put them aside. So let us take this message to our ward that in unity we will take over Edo State in the next election.
“We have done so well against intimidation, let me also say that you have done very well in Edo North but please don’t relent, we have the governorship election coming up very soon and as you know only one person will be our candidate.
By the time we elect our governorship candidate, we expect all of us to queue behind him so that he can lead us to victory at the governorship election.
In the past few days I read in the paper members of APC admitting that the APC governor in the state has failed but I want to use this opportunity to tell them that it is a collective failure and PDP is ready to take over from them.
From what I saw during my tour of the local government, I can see that people are ready to vote APC out of government,” he said.
Orbih also said that in the failure of the APC led government lies the strength of the PDP to win the election.
“With this celebration, the stage is set for PDP to win Edo. Please let us go to our various local government and take this message to our wards that we want a united and strong PDP. In unity we are going to take the government of this state,” he said.
