Tom Ikimi boasts: We made Oshiomhole, we will unmake him
A staunch member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Tom Ikimi has said the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, will win the Edo governorship election resoundingly. The architect-turned-politician who has flirted with APC after leaving the PDP said the same machinery that brough Oshiomhole to power which he is a strong member will ensure that the PDP candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, wins this time.
“There is nothing to fear. The security is good everywhere. The leadership of our party is equal to the task and we shall win these elections resoundingly. The level of winning will be such that APC will not be able to contest the victory.
“We are now at the threshold of the election. We brought Oshiomhole seven and a half years ago and we are now determined that Oshiomhole should give way for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as successor,” he said.
Ikimi, now a member of the PDP Board of Trustees spoke yesterday while addressing newsmen in Benin, the state capital.
According to him, the postponement of the election will ensure the people who were already eager to “change the change” do so en masse. The Edo State governorship election now holds on September 28.
