Osaro Onaiwu, immediate past Director-General of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Governors' Forum, has purchased the nomination form for Edo State governorship seat under the platform of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

Onaiwu told newsmen after collecting the form in Abuja on Wednesday that he was not in APGA by default.

Explaining his choice of APGA as against PDP, Onaiwu said he was looking for a model of development he intended to bring to Edo and was able to find it in Anambra state.

"I have been serving 36 governors, not just only in the PDP but 36 governors of the country.

"I am looking at a model of government for my people in Edo state and APGA has that model. Anambra state government is a model in governance today", Onaiwu said.

On his chances to win the contest on Sept. 10, Onaiwu said he was confident of victory as the contest was not about money but about vision and the ability to deliver.

Onaiwu, who resigned as DG of the PDP forum on Monday, pledged to make industrialisation the focus of his administration, if elected.

The National Chairman of APGA, Dr Victor Oye, described APGA as a party for the future, saying our party and its aspirant for Edo governorship seat have a clean bill of health.

Oye said APGA was poised to take over the nation ahead of 2019 general elections.

"APGA is the fastest growing political party in Nigeria and we are going to replicate the achievements of Anambra in Edo", he said.

The National Secretary of the party, Mr Labaran Maku, described Osaro as the solution to ``the many troubles in Edo state.’’
