Receiving the report on behalf of the Governor at a meeting with political leaders of the party, the Edo State Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu, hailed the committee for a good job, saying that the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led government will adopt the report for the development of the party and the state.
According to him, APC in Edo is very united right now and the state will keep following the governor’s lead because he’ll lead them on the right path.
He added that President Muhammadu Buhari is the leader of APC as a party in Nigeria and Obaseki is the leader of APC in Edo.
His words, “I thank the mobilization committee for a great job; I know a lot of energy has gone into the report presented before this great meeting. Your duty is to woo new members into the party, and we will genuinely receive them into our great party.
“The APC in the state is more united than ever. Governor Godwin Obaseki has given us directives on how new members will be welcomed into the party, and we will follow his directions because we know it’s the right way to go.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari is the leader of APC as a party in Nigeria and Obaseki is the leader of APC in Edo and he is determined to move the state forward. We want our party to be bigger, stronger and more importantly, united as we approach the election. We have structures on how new members will be welcomed into the party.
“APC in Edo will be bigger by the time we start receiving people into the party. We will admit them into the party through the right process. We need everybody. I want us to go back to our unit and wards and ensure we continue to mobilize non-stop until victory is ours.”
