Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not exist in the state.
Oshiomhole also described members of the opposition party as being “lighter than bread.”
“Our delegates have spoken, now the party will hit the ground running. There is no PDP in Edo state. Which of the factions? We have one body, several heads, even when they were in Federal, we defeated them with all their Federal might. So there is no PDP as long as I am concerned,” he said.
“For me they are lighter than a loaf of bread. But we will go to the election, there are other parties in the state. PDP is not an issue, I don’t think Edo people will forget the crime of PDP in a hurry. Not for the next twenty years in this state. Even when you ask young boys and girls in the state, who is responsible for this bad school they say PDP.
“Who is responsible for this bad hospital, they say PDP. Who is responsible for this bad road PDP, who is responsible for this good road, APC. Even children know that by the time they become 18 they will continue to vote APC and vote against PDP. We have no fear at all, in fact we will do better in the next election and kick them out of existence,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Edo APC has chosen Godwin Obaseki as its governorship candidate for the September 10 elections.
