The group also appreciated the party leadership at both the National and State levels and all those who made efforts to ensure that the party had smooth and rancour-free primaries most especially, the three aspirants that agreed to step down for Governor Obaseki in the interest of Edo State.

“The AASG commends the National Working Committee of our party for showing leadership and capacity. A party like the APC that lacks the capabilities to manage its internal affairs and crisis can not manage the country affairs well, as a result, has no business being in power

“We also express our appreciation most importantly to the three aspirants that agreed to step down for Governor Obaseki.”

AASG urged the good people of Edo state to vote en masse for the PDP and returned Gov. Obaseki at the general election so that he could continue the good works he was doing in the State.
