Despite the challenges posed by its last minute postponement, a member of the PDP Board of trustees, Chief Tom Ikimi yesterday said that his party will win the state governorship elections, resoundingly.
He said the magnitude of votes that Edo people will use in voting for the PDP will be beyond the imagination of the APC and its leadership will not contemplate contesting the victory.
Ikimi, while addressing newsmen in Benin City weekend, said the new date for the elections guarantees security for all and so voters will be better assured that they can go out and exercise their franchise to, ‘change the change’.
“There is nothing to fear. The security is good everywhere. The leadership of our party is equal to the task and we shall win these elections resoundingly. The level of winning will be such that APC will not be able to contest the victory”.
According to Chief Ikimi, “we are now at the threshold of the election. We brought Oshiomhole seven and a half years ago and we are now determined that Oshiomhole should give way for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as successor.”
