A Chieftain of the APC in Edo State, Mr Lawrence Orkah, has said that the governorship candidate of the party, Mr Godwin Obaseki’s has a better programme for the poor than Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the PDP.
“I know these two people very well and I know their capabilities. I was in the PDP with Ize-Iyamu for years. In fact, some of us knew when he started his political life through Lucky Igbinedion and the truth is that like many politicians in the PDP, he plays selfish politics. He always think about himself and not the poor because he is a core politician.
“And when you look at their programmes and how Obaseki has been campaigning, you will find out that because he is coming from the private sector, he is always sincere in most promises he has made. He thinks more about the poor masses than the rich. His experience in the private sector and his seven and half years in the state as chairman of the Economic Team of the state gives him a better chance to win.
“I don’t want to consider what Oshiomhole and APC has done in Edo already, because when you add that one you will even wonder where PDP will get the votes from.”
