All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo on Monday, announced that former governor, Adams Oshiomhole, was the only candidate the state chapter was supporting for the national chairmanship of the party.
Other aspirants from Edo include Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor and Chief Ibrahim Emokpaire.
Speaking while swearing in 18 local government chairmen of the party in Edo, state chairman, Anselm Ojezua, expressed confidence that Oshiomhole would do well.
He said: “You will notice that from the beginning of this process, we have not deviated from the constitution.
“Arguably, Edo State is the only state where we don’t have one issue from the ward executive constitutions right down to the state congress and this is because we have the right leadership, which took the right decisions and adopted the right processes to get the right result.
“We have to build on it, we must prove that it worked for us and it must work for Nigeria.
“That is the reason why we will take this opportunity to also say that the man who designed this our model, which led to it fruition is the man we are hoping to donate to Nigeria to do for Nigeria what he did for Edo State and that man is Oshiomhole.
“That legacy is what we have a duty to build upon. And we want to make it clear that he is the only candidate we are backing for the national chairmanship of the APC”.
The APC national convention has been scheduled for June 23.
