Shaibu Woos Electorate To Vote PDP Candidates

Ahead the upcoming 2023 general elections slated for next week, 25th February and 11th March, Edo State Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu, has charged eligible voters in the State to elect all candidates on the platform of PDP, even as he described the flag-bearers of the party as credible and experienced persons, who mean well for the people.

The Deputy Governor, who led the PDP Edo North Campaign Rescue Team to Owan West Local Government Area, described the umbrella party as the only solution to the numerous challenges confronting Nigeria today.

According to Shaibu, “Nigeria needs a President that is mentally and physically alert and Atiku Abubakar is the only Presidential Candidate with a clear-cut plan and blue print for restructuring Nigeria”.

” We do not need a President that will be licking the microphone and bringing reproach to Nigeria on the international scene”.

The Deputy Governor emphasized that the people do not need another President that will use Nigeria as an experiment, as Atiku Abubakar is the only Presidential Candidate that has the needed experience to lead the country out of poverty, insecurity and the economic crisis the APC-led Federal Government has plunged the nation into.

“We can not continue with APC which has led us to a situation where you are unable to withdraw your own money from the bank.We need to vote for all the PDP candidates, from the President, Senate, House of Representatives down to the State House of Assembly, to deliver us from the current anti-people policies”.

On the PDP Vice Presidential Candidate, he said: “Governor lfeanyi Okowa is one of us and his mother is from Edo State. Edo can’t afford to abandon one of its own. Okowa is one of us and Edo people will be proud to have one of us as the Vice President of Nigeria. That is why we have to join hands and ensure that all the PDP candidates are elected in the coming election”.

Addressing a mammoth crowd of PDP supporters in Sobe, the Deputy Governor described the incumbent Senator and PDP candidate for Edo North Senatorial District, Francis Alimikhena, as a man with maximum capacity to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.

” He has done it before; he will do much more again. 2023 offers the opportunity for the people of Owan to position themselves to take over as the next Senator. The only way to realize that dream is by voting for Senator Francis Alimikhena”, he added.

Earlier, during a courtesy visit to the royal palace of Odibiado of Sobe Kingdom, HRH Anthony Ero Alburu 1,who spoke through the Secretary of the Palace, Chief Larry Enahoro and other Chiefs in the kingdom, assured the Deputy Governor and his entourage that “PDP will be delivered in Owan West Local Government area in the forthcoming general elections”.

The monarch said the PDP House of Assembly candidate, Hon. Blessing Agbebaku, was a tested and trusted hand, whose victory the people will ensure in the forthcoming election.

The traditional ruler also described the PDP House of Representatives Candidate and former Commissioner,Hon. Jimoh Ijegbai, “as a man who has displayed enough capacity to earn the confidence of the people”.

The Palace unanimously commended Senator Francis Alimikhena for his projects in the locality, while expressing optimism in the capacity of all the PDP candidates in the forthcoming general elections.

“Sobe community is traditionally a PDP stronghold. We can assure you of our collective votes”,the monarch and his palace chiefs added.

ANTI PARTY ACTIVITIES: Esan Central APC, Suspends Nine Leaders, Appoints Bello



Nine Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Esan Central LGA have been suspended at an extraordinary meeting held this evening at Irrua, the LGA capital.

The suspended leaders include APC State Vice Chairman, Chief Francis Inegbeniki, Esan Central foremost Party Leader, Prince Willy Shaka Momodu, Ward Leader, Hon Abudu Ugbesia, among six others.

The suspended nine APC leaders are alleged to have held a clandestine meeting at a hotel in Eidenu, Irrua on the eve of the House of Assembly election and resolved to work against their party candidate for the House of Assembly election, Hon Victor Edoror. It is alleged that they were induced by the ruling party and their grand conspiracy to disallow Hon Edoror to get into the House and become the Speaker which might scuttle their agenda for Esan governor candidate from Esan Central LGA.

The meeting which was attended enmass by angry members and party executives of the party across the LGA appointed former LGA Councillior, and House of Assembly election aspirant, Hon. Bello Oyaziwolo, as the acting Leader, to oversee the affairs of the party pending the determination of the investigation into the degree of involvement of each of the suspended leader.

Interestingly, the Deputy Leader of the Party in Esan Central LGA and former Vice Chairman of the LGA, Hon Francis Ubene, was exempted from suspension because preliminary investigation revealed that he was in the meeting allegedly called by Chief Inegbeniki, but he refused to agree with their alleged plan to sabotage the election for Hon Edoror because according to him “I have forgiven him and if I have forgiven him, I cannot work against him or the party”.

Speaking with Hon Bello, after the appointment, the new LGA Leader said he was not interested in Leading the party for selfish reasons but would commit himself to helping the party rid itself of betrayals and inept leaders in the LGA and hopefully allow a free process to produce the next LGA Leader.

Press Release



Senator Ovie Omo-Agege Rejects INEC’s Declaration of Oborevwori As Winner of Delta Poll

A while ago, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Delta State announced Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, gubernatorial flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the governor-elect following the March 18 governorship election.

The declaration was made despite the myriad of infractions and acts of impunity on the part of the PDP in the course of the election. These were brought to the attention of INEC with incontrovertible proof.

The March 18 election was characterized by massive fraud, unprecedented vote buying and voter suppression perpetrated by the PDP in the course of the election.

The fraudulent nature of PDP’s so-called victory are just too damning and daring for it to be acceptable in any decent society. Most of those infractions are on the public domain and known to INEC officials and the security agencies involved in superintending the election.

In the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections, the results pointed to an unequivocal rejection of the PDP. Of the three senatorial zones in the state, APC won two while PDP controversially edged out the Labour Party in the Delta North Senate race.

It was an unadulterated verdict of Deltans on how they have fared under 24 years of governance of their state by PDP.

On the basis of the factors listed and more that will come later, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, governorship candidate of the APC in Delta State as well as the leadership of the party, unequivocally reject the declaration by INEC of Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori of the PDP as winner of the March 18 governorship election.

We will challenge this fraudulent result using all legal means.

As a democrat and Deputy President of the Senate, Omo-Agege will explore all lawful avenues to reclaim the mandate freely given to him by the good people of Delta State.

To the numerous supporters of APC and the entire public that share in Omo-Agege’s vision of building a new Delta State, we urge you all to remain calm, peaceful and law abiding.

I can assure all our teeming supporters and all Deltans that the PDP pyrrhic celebration of a stolen mandate will be short-lived.

By the grace of God and the clearly expressed wish of the people, this electoral heist will be reversed and Senator Omo-Agege will be sworn in on May 29, 2023 as the lawfully elected Governor of Delta State.
