Following a primaries that threatened the unity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, the party declared that it has achieved 100 per cent reconciliation of all aggrieved aspirants and persons.
Twelve aspirants contested the governorship ticket of the party that was won by Godwin Obaseki, while two of the aspirants, Kenneth Imasuangbon and Chris Ogiemwonyi, rejected the results of the primaries.
The duo, however, appeared to have backtracked on their earlier position and now set to team up with Obaseki to ensure that APC wins the September 10 governorship election.
After the party’s primaries appeal panel submitted its report and the party adopted Obaseki as its candidate, Imasuagbon, who spoke on phone, said the party’s decision was supreme.
Ogiemwonyi had also declared support for Obaseki, urging his supporters to ensure victory for the APC at the polls.
Giving his report on the party’s reconciliation, Edo state chairman of the APC, Anselm Ojezua, described the efforts as the edge the APC has over other political parties, particularly the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Ojezua said all the aspirants have queued behind Obaseki to ensure victory at the polls.
He said that members of the opposition PDP had been defecting to the APC after the APC’s primaries.
