Obaseki’s Exit Is Painful But APC Will Reclaim Edo – Yahaya Bello

Obaseki had surrendered his participation of APC after he was excluded from the decision gathering’s gubernatorial primary for the 2020 election.

He along these lines moved to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where he was conceded waiver to challenge the primary scheduled for Thursday.

Talking with state house reporters after he and his partners from the north-focal met with Ibrahim Gambari, head of staff to the president, Bello said incumbency factor can’t spare Obaseki in the September political decision.

“We have seen people with significant influence before that are ousted, we have seen for all intents and purposes how President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC deposed the previous president,” he said.

“So, that is not any trouble at all. APC is going to win Edo State. But unfortunately, I really feel the leaving of my colleague, His Excellency Governor Godwin Obaseki in whatever circumstance to another political party, is painful anyway, but as a political party, we are going to take Edo back.”

Discussing on crisis in the APC, Bello said:

“Our party is one solid party. In a particular big family like that, you won’t rule out any misunderstanding in one way or the other. But I can assure you that our party is strong under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari and as a father, he is already looking into it and I can assure you that we are going to come out very strong.

“We are going to go to Edo State and we shall win Edo state election overwhelmingly for APC, we are going to go to Ondo state and win it overwhelmingly for APC.

We will take Anambra State and record it as a second APC state from the South East and integrate our Igbo brothers into the fold and we are going to take Ekiti and Osun once again.

“So, we are going to continue to expand our coast. APC is strong; we are not divided, we are only seeing one same point from a different angle and we are trying to make ourselves understand the points, that is just it, there is no misunderstanding.”
