The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has inaugurated the state executive committee of the party with a vow to reclaim the state in the 2023 general elections, as well as the 2024 governorship election.
Speaking on Monday at the event held at the state party secretariat, state chairman of the party, David Imuse, a medical doctor and retired army colonel, described what is happening in the state as “an aberration” which he assured would be corrected.
Imuse said “With the successful inauguration of our state executive committee, we present a viable opposition that will be so admirable to the people that by 2023, APC will take over the elective political positions of the state, and by 2024, we will repeat the same for the governorship election because what is happening in our state and Osadebe Avenue is an aberration. And through the coming elections, we will correct the aberration”.
Describing Governor Godwin Obaseki as a tyrant, the APC chairman accused him of abandonment of democratic principles and settling for strategies to satisfy his personal interests, citing the non-inauguration of 14 lawmakers elected on the platform of the APC, and the claims by the government of revolution in the primary education sector through EdoBEST, and other intervention programmes, which he dismissed as fake.
According to Imuse, “The basic education sector in our state needs urgent surgical examination. We call on Mr. Obaseki to urgently correct the window-dressing and improve the fortunes of education in Edo as it is presently in a state of decay. The dearth of teachers in public schools across the state is embarrassing hence the adverse effect on students’ performance in recent times. The government urgently needs to recruit more teachers and the time to do so is now before the situation degenerates further.”
