A group known as the Renewed Hope Ambassadors, Edo State chapter, yesterday called on the South South Zonal Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Blessing Agbomhere to join the race for the party’s ticket for the governorship election in the state.
The group said its position comes after examining the contributions of Agbomhere in the performance of the APC in the 2023 Presidential, National and State Assembly Elections.
In a statement signed by its coordinator, Dr. Richard Uwaifo, the group said Agbomhere has the required academic capacity and track records to bring Edo State back on track after what it described as the seven years of the tyrannical, visionless and purposeless administration of the outgoing governor, Godwin Obaseki.
The group also resolved that Edo State requires a candidate with good education, innovative and creative leadership charisma and the ability to showcase the state in all spheres, attributes, they said, are inherent in Agbomhere.
They said the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole administration set the state on the path of economic prosperity and decent governance through massive infrastructural development and human capital development but the trajectory was cut short by the advent of the Obaseki – Shuaibu administration.
They however added that Edo people will accept and receive Blessing Agbomhere with open hands knowing that he is the finest material to rebuild the state.
While the groups and prominent individuals in society are clamouring for Agbomhere to come and serve the state, it is yet to be confirmed whether he has accepted their clarion call to serve.
