Members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC in Akoko-Edo in Edo state have passed a vote of confidence on the national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
They passed the vote of confidence while at a mass rally in support of the party’s national leadership as well as the member representing the constituency in the Federal House of Representatives, Hon Peter Akpatason.
The streets of Igarra , the head quarter of the LGA and the party Secretariat were thrown into celebration as party faithfuls came out in large numbers from across all wards to declare their unalloyed support and solidarity for comrade Adams Oshiomhole and Hon. Peter Akpatason
Another stakeholder of the party in the constituency, Mr. Folly Akerejola, the immediate past chairman of the local government council described the duo as men of impeccable character who have track records of integrity and hard Work.
“Oshiomhole and Akpatason have proven themselves worthy sons of Edo land and Nigeria as a whole. Oshiomhole is an epitome of leadership and development who has made Edo people proud. Comrade Akpatason on the other hand has developed Akoko-Edo Federal constituency beyond our expectation, that’s why we want him to continue to represent us as a ranked and high performing legislator,” he added.
Another leader of the party in the constituency, Barrister Sunday Mayaki dismissed the speculation of some party members that some wards are planning ethnic agenda, stressing that Akpatason is a son of the entire Akoko-Edo, hence they would support him to continue his good works for the people of the constituency.
“No Igara agenda, we are going to return Akpatason and Dele Olorutoba come 2019. Everybody in Akoko-Edo should come out enmass and excercise their franchise wisely for continuity.” He stressed.
A woman leader of the party, Comrade Funmi Oseh described Oshiomhole and Akpatason as God sent who have showed to the people that there are still some descent politicians who care about the people.
She said, “They have taken empowering of women as a priority. When Oshiomhole was the governor of Edo State, he build schools, hospitals, and gave our children work. God go bless Oshiomhole. Akpatason gave the women grinding machines, hair dryers, and some funds to do business”.
