Our next governor knows where to start, he doesn’t need touch light, he can see all things that has stopped, and he will reignite the engine of growth and development in this great state.

“I’m particularly excited the transparent manner in which my friend, my namesake, Adams meticulously identified each ward leader, youth leader, all the wards executives in each of the ward in Egor, he could have just park people and say these are all the decampees leaders across the wards. So, nobody is left. It is finish.

“So, I want to assure you, through you Adams, I want to assure those who have queue behind you to return to APC that you are not a stranger in the house, you not be, and you cannot be treated as a stranger because you are not one. You will bring on board your wealth of experience, you will bring on board your rugged, dogged digital determination to do what you have always be doing.

And by the special grace of God, those things that we did, and I know what they are, we made conscious efforts to de-flood Egor, now the floods are back, Akpakomiza, without grammar, without consultancy, he will re-dredge all those flooding areas in Egor.

“It is not an out of God that you don’t look forward to rain. By the special grace of God, Benin people will look forward to the raining reason with joy again, with Akpakomiza as the governor.

“Let me state – what we need today is a man who can do, not the man who can talk, if talking will change Nigeria, Nigeria would have been more than America. This man will spend the time doing instead of talking. If talking is require, we will talk, but this man knows what Edo people need now, is to do and he go do well,

“What is value for Egor is value for Oredo, Ikpoba Okha and across all other local governments that made up Edo State”.

My leader has made all the promises and I can only say yes, the promises will be done because APC is a party of opportunities, just the way the party gave me the opportunity that I can stand today and address you as the chairman of the party. That same opportunity will be extended to all of you that joined us today.”
