By Simon Ebegbulem,
APC women from across the country led by the wife of the President, Hajiya Aisha Buhari, yesterday stormed Edo State to give their support to the APC candidate, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, saying that victory for the party in the forthcoming governorship election in the state is non- negotiable.
The women shortly after paying a courtesy visit to Obaseki, also visited the Internally Displaced Persons Camp at Uhogua community Ovia North East, where they donated foodstuff, writing materials and toiletries. The First Lady who was represented by the APC Woman leader in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, Mrs. Hailmary Aipoh, said they were in the state in solidarity with the Obaseki campaign organization and to equally remind the candidate that “he must remember our women and children when he wins because he will win.”
According to her, “Governor Oshiomhole is our great brother who has made us proud in Edo with his developmental projects, so we are always with him. APC has done well for Edo people, and that is why we are saying continuity. Obaseki is a quiet gentleman that is tested and trusted, and we believe that on September 10, Edo people and all women will rally round him and by the special grace of God, he has won already”.
The South-South zonal woman leader of the APC, Mrs Racheal Akpabio, who commended the wife of the President for her assistance in the provision of writing materials and food stuff for the IDPs, equally expressed joy with the concern shown by the first lady as regards Edo state election, declaring that the women will give all necessary support to ensure that Obaseki emerges victorious.
