Former deputy governor of Edo state and leading aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), RT Hon Pius Odubu, stormed the national secretariat of the party earlier today to submit completed nomination and expression of interest forms ahead of the governorship election scheduled for September 19th. 2020.

This singular move has put an end to rumours that the erudite contender has abandoned his gubernatorial ambition and pursuit for alleged wanton purposes.

With the submission of the nomination and expression of interest forms, it is crystal clear that RT Hon Pius Odubu is determined to save the party from the hands of shenanigans; in line with the vision and mission of the authentic APC who has vowed to rescue the party from the debilitating iron grip of the incumbent government and source for a credible replacement.

As a loyal party man who believes in its policy direction, constitution and supremacy, and enamored with a staggering wealth of public service experience and unblemished personality, is presenting himself to the party and its members, particularly, those who have been victims of the humiliation metted out by the Obaseki led administration after risking their lives and properties in ensuring its emergence, to reconsider their stand in the on-going process of selecting the party flagbearer in the forthcoming party primary. This admonition is coming on the hills of allegations of strategic plan by Mr Godwin Obaseki to deploy legal means in thwarting all efforts made by the party to encumber any aspirant given the party ticket thereafter.

In the light of the aforesaid, RT Hon Pius Odubu, is believed to posses the requisite attributes and unblemished personality of a fit and proper person to fly the party’s flag such that fears posed by the governor’s alleged clandestine plot can be rendered impotent well in advance.
