Tinubu Presents APC Flag to Edo Gov Candidate, Running Mate

President Bola Tinubu has presented the All Progressives Congress flag to the Edo governorship candidate, Senator Monday Okpebholo, and his running mate, Rep. Dennis Idahosa.

Tinubu made the presentation on Monday in Abuja with a promise to stand with the candidates ”like the wall of Gibraltar.”

”If you are happy; we are happy. If you are determined; we are determined. We are going to work with you. We are going to stand with you like the wall of Gibraltar. That is all I can assure you. The party is supreme, but victory is superior and very important,” the President said.

”Distinguished Senator and our flagbearer, we are putting you forward in order to hold the party in trust for us and achieve victory for us. You and your running mate have been described as giant killers, and you have worked tirelessly with the party leadership,” he said.

The flag presentation was witnessed by APC National Chairman Abdullahi Ganduje, state leader, Senator Adams Oshiomhole, Edo State woman leader, Lady Betty Okoebor and some of the aspirants who contested the governorship race with Okpebholo.

National Chairman of the APC emphasized the unity of purpose within the party towards achieving victory in the election.

”Our candidate is soft-spoken, focused, and an achiever. He is a product that is highly marketable, and I am confident that with him as our flagbearer, we will bring Edo back to our party,” Dr. Ganduje said.
