APC Senatorial Aspirant In Edo Denies Quitting Race

Published

on


An aspirant jostling to fly the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for the Edo Central Senatorial seat, Mr Theophillus Okoh, yesterday, dispelled the rumour that he has stepped down from the race after a meeting he held with Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Okoh, who declared that he is very much in the race, noted that no aspirant in the race could boast of his political structure in Esan land.

He said he met with the governor over his intention to contest the Edo Central Senatorial Seat. The governor, however, expressed reservation in supporting his aspiration.

He said: “ It is a very wicked rumour and a way to sabotage my campaign. I never promised the governor that I am collapsing my structure. I met with Obaseki quite alright, we had an argument and I told him that I was running although he had his reservations about my aspiration.”

“I met with leaders of the party in the state including Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, who told me that the leadership of the party would not impose or nominate candidates for us. He said that he believes the approach should be bottom up and up-down.”
