Oshiomhole’s ex-aide, community support Obaseki’s re-election with N5m, promise 6,000 votes

BENIN CITY – Former aide to the ex-Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, Mr. Andrew Momodu, has pledged the sum of N5 million (Five Million Naira) to support the re-election of Governor Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 19, 2020 governorship election in the state.

Momodu made the pledge on behalf of Anwain Progressives Union (APU), the umbrella Union of Anwain Clan, on Tuesday at the PDP Governorship Campaign in Ward 8, Anwain, Etsako West Local Government Area, where hundreds of APC leaders and members defected to the PDP.

He assured the governor that 6000 votes from the ward would be cast for the PDP in the forthcoming poll to appreciate the governor for attracting development to the area, particularly the ongoing Agbede-Anwain Road construction.

Momodu said: “the Anwain Progressives Union, the umbrella Union of Anwain Clan, has resolved to support Governor Obaseki with N5 million for his campaign. We have collected our PVCs and have all resolved to give the governor 100 per cent of our votes come September 19, 2020. We are sure of giving you 6,000 votes from this ward.”

Addressing the PDP members and supporters in Anwain and Idegun communities, Governor Obaseki promised to reciprocate the kindness shown him by prioritising healthcare, education and agriculture, among others in the second term of his administration if re-elected.

He recalled the sterling qualities of the famous Alhaji Jah Osman, who hailed from Anwain and assured that Agbede-Anwain Road construction work, which was suspended as a result of the disruptions caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, would be completed soon.

“Since I started this campaign, this is the only place where indigenes are donating money to support my campaign. I am very grateful,” he said.
