Sen. Oserhemen Osunbor on Thursday 25 January 2024 picked the All Progressives Congress (APC) expression of interest and nomination form to fly the party’s flag for the Edo governorship election.

Addressing journalists at the APC media centre at the party’s National Secretariat Abuja, Prof. Osunbor submitted that the election would be “a low hanging fruit” for the APC if he clinched the party’s ticket.

Osunbor said: “Ladies and Gentlemen, you will recall that last Friday 19 January, the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Felix Morka, Esq, issued a Press Statement to the effect that all interested aspirants for the Edo governorship election 2024 are free to come and collect their forms. Pursuant to that Statement, I have come here today to pick up the Expression of interest and Nomination Forms.

“For many of us, this coming election is a MUST WIN for Edo State APC. No impediment, no matter how contrived and from whatever source, can stop our great party APC from reclaiming Edo in 2024.

“The mistakes which made APC to lose the state to PDP in 2020 must not be allowed to afflict us a second time. For APC as a party, Edo State is a low-hanging fruit. We must not lose this opportunity to reclaim it with me as candidate. My popularity and acceptability spread across the three Senatorial Districts of Fdo State and even beyond APC.

‘I know that my supporters, well wishers and all people of goodwill across Edo State and beyond will be elated and relieved to see me here at the APC National Secretariat to collect these forms. Edo people are yearning for good governance. They want to see Edo State resources being used to develop the state and transform the lives of the people for the better. They are waiting to give me a resounding victory in the September 21 governorship election.

“They remember very well my excellent performance as governor for 17½ months from 2007 to 2008 and want to see me back in Osadebe Avenue as governor-hence I have christened my Manifesto: THE REBIRTH OF EDO FOR EXCELLENCE.

“Now we have taken the first step. We will not look back. Rather, we are looking forward to the direct primaries promised us by the leadership of the party. I am confident that the party will conduct proper primaries, devoid of undue influence and manipulations. By the grace of God our victory is sure.”
