AS the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Pary (PDP) continue their fight for the Soul of Edo state, the re election ambition of Governor Godwin Obaseki received a boot on Wednesday, when a former aide of the former National Chairman to the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, Andrew Momodu, dumped the APC and defected to the PDP
Momodu also announced his contribution of N5m to the Obaseki re election campaign fund even as he pledged to contribute his best to actualize the ambition
This is even as the Eramah Anwian of Anwain Kingdom in Etsako East LGA of Edo North, HRM Mufutairu Oare, has also publickly endorsed the governor for a second term with an assurance that his community will pay him back with their votes in recognition ggesture to them
The Eramah Anwian while reassuring Obaseki of their support, said: “Mr. Governor, we are assuring you that you are at home. This community road has been a disaster for over a thousand years until your intervention. We were cut off from Edo State until you gave us a good road that integrated us back as members of the state.
“We cannot forget such a gesture. The government comes and goes and no government remembers that we exist. But Obaseki came and connected us back to the state through good roads.
“It takes so many hours to come out from the community to the main road, but today, the story is no more the same. In less than an hour, you can now approach various parts of the state due to a good network of roads..
“Anywhere Obaseki/Shaibu stands, that’s where the entire Anwain community will stand,” assured the traditional ruler.
