The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has revealed the best candidate that can make a huge statement for the All Progressives Congress in the forthcoming Edo governorship election.
The APC had announced that twelve aspirants will be participating in the screening process.
The primary election will be held on February 17.
The successful aspirants are the immediate past state Chairman of APC, Gideon Ikhine; ex-Minister of State, National Economic Planning, Clem Agba; senator representing Edo Central, Monday Okpebholo; erstwhile deputy governor, Lucky Imasuen, former governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and lawmaker representing Etsako Federal Constituency, Anamero Dekeri.
Others are ex-Zonal Organising Secretary for South-South, Blessing Agbohmere; House of Representatives member, Dennis Idahosa, former permanent secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security, Ernest Afolabi Umakhihe; Col. David Imuse, Major General Charles Airhiavbere (retd) and Emmanuel Momoh.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele made it known that Dennis Idahosa is the best candidate the APC can field if it wants to make waves in the election. He explained that if the party chooses someone else, it will be impossible to compete with the ruling party.
‘’Dennis Idahosa is the best candidate for APC in the Edo state governorship election. He is the only person that can give the party a chance in the governorship election. Other aspirants are wasting their money and if APC chooses someone else, it will be difficult for the party to compete in the election.’’
