President Bola Tinubu has declared that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is on the path to victory in the September 2024 gubernatorial election in Edo State. 

The president expressed the optimism while presenting the party’s flag to the state gubernatorial candidate, Senator Monday Okpebholo, and his running mate, Hon. Dennis Idahosa, at the State House, Abuja on Monday.

Addressing party stalwarts led by the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, President Tinubu pledged that the party would stand with the candidates ”like the wall of Gibraltar”.

He said: “If you are happy; we are happy. If you are determined; we are determined. We are going to work with you. We are going to stand with you like the wall of Gibraltar. That is all I can assure you. The party is supreme, but victory is superior and very important.

“Distinguished senator and our flag-bearer, we are putting you forward in order to hold the party in trust for us and achieve victory for us. You and your running mate have been described as giant killers, and you have worked tirelessly with the party leadership.”

The president, while inviting Edo State Women Leader, Lady Betty Okoebor, to speak on the party’s readiness for the election, reiterated that with the strong support of women, victory is assured.

”If the women say we are going to win, then we are good to go because they constitute the largest number of voters and the most dedicated,” he affirmed.

President Tinubu commended the leadership of the party in Edo State for their efforts towards the success of the candidates and the party. 

He particularly lauded Senator Adams Oshiomhole, former governor of the state, for his exemplary leadership.  

Earlier in his remarks, the National Chairman of the APC, Ganduje, emphasized the unity of purpose within the party towards achieving victory in the election. 

”Our candidate is soft-spoken, focused and an achiever. He is a product that is highly marketable, and I am confident that with him as our flag-bearer, we will bring Edo back to our party,” Ganduje said.
