Edo 2020 : Only Edo People Will Decide Who Governs Them – Oyegun

A former National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie – Oyegun  says only the people of Edo state would decide who governs them during the governorship election. 


Chief Oyegun made this known in a statement on Tuesday to deny his reported endorsement of the Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu. 


Some reports had circulated that Oyegun, who is a former governor of Edo state had endorsed  Ize-Iyamu ahead of the September 19th Governorship election in the state. 

According to Oyegun, only Edo people will decide their fate not him nor any political leader. 
The ex-governor of Edo State, in a statement, yesterday, described the purported statement credited to him in the social media as disgusting, insisting that it could have originated from sick minds and desperate people of criminal orientation.

He said: “My views and statements on the Edo political situation has been consistent.

“I strongly advised against the mistreatment of Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki by the late unlamented National Working Committee, NWC, of the APC and his subsequent forced exit from the APC.

“Governor Obaseki stood bravely for the dignity and the pride of his people and in the process, suffered unacceptable indignities.

“In the matter of who governs Edo State, the people are sovereign and no individual or group, whatever their status, can decide on their behalf.
“I stand with the Edo people and urge them to come out massively to exercise their democratic rights.

“They should vote for good governance, common decency, principled leadership especially in the political arena and the protection of their vital democratic rights.
