Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole has described the All Progressives Congress governorship primary in the state as peaceful, saying that “those who have been peddling rumours about purchase of PVCs has been shamed today because you can see that every body who came here to vote came with their PVCs.
“But I am happy with the arrangement today whoever wins will fly the flag of our party,” Oshiomole said.
“I had told the aspirants that this must be a brotherly affair and not war because at the end of the day we will all work for the party and support whoever wins the primaries. That is why I have been calm all these while when people make frivolous allegations against me and even malign my person.
“But I thank God things are moving smoothly and all those who predicted doom for APC today in Edo should hide their heads in shame” he stated.
Two of the contestants Dr. Chris Ogiemwonyi and Kenneth Imansuangbon had accused the Governor Adams Oshiomhole of trying to intimidate delegates.
