The Chairman of diaspora APC said the state once belonged to the APC before Governor Obaseki took the state to the opposition, insisting that this is more reason why the diaspora APC wants to ensure the state goes back to the party.

Asuelime who disclosed this at the weekend at the secretariat of the APC in Benin, said he came to Edo State to form a strong synergy between the state APC and the diaspora APC with a view to working for the victory of the party in the forthcoming election.

According to him, Edo extraction alone has over 5,000 registered diaspora voters who,, have influence in not less than 50,000 voters at home that will vote in the governorship election.

He said: “This state belonged to us at a certain point, but our governor that we elected took it to another party. We know the role the diasporas played to make sure he emerged then.”

He added: “This is the time for the diaspora, I mean the progressive diaspora to ensure such narrative does not take place again.

“So, this the time for Edo State, I mean the progressive party- APC to take the diaspora arm seriously, and if we do not do what we are doing now, we will not have a central cord to organise and to shape the narrative.

He continued: “My focus and involvement is to ensure that Edo State returns to the APC. My main purpose is for whosoever emerges at the primary of APC to become the next governor of Edo State.

” Edo extraction alone in the diaspora has over 5,000 registered voters who are breadwinners of over 50,000 families here at home, and you know what that means.”

Asked if he’s interested in contesting the forthcoming governorship election, the APC chieftain said: “I am not interested in contesting the governorship election in Edo State, I am just interested in who governs the state; I am interested in Edo State returning to the progressives party – the All Progressives Congress, APC, and that is what we are here for.”

Speaking on the European Union’s (EU) report on the 2023 presidential election, the Diaspora APC Chairman said the EU shouldn’t interfere in Nigeria’s election because Nigeria has never interfered in their elections.

He insisted that Nigeria is an independent and sovereign nation hence it must stop inviting foreigners as observers in any election.

He said: “I understand the dynamism and the politics played at the international level. Nigeria did not interfere in European countries’ elections; we did not interfere in American elections; what we see here does not matter to them, so why should what they say matter to us? It’s time we start taking ourselves seriously; we are an independent and sovereign nation,” he concluded….CONTINUE READING
