Written by Morenike Adebayo on September 6, 2016
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo says President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state will boost the party’s chances at Saturday’s governorship election. President Buhari arrived Benin today to attend the party’s grand finale campaign rally at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin ahead of September tenth governorship election in Edo.
The Party Chairman in the state, Mr Anselm Ojezua, said the President’s visit will boost the party’s chances at the polls. Ojezua, who spoke at the main bowl of the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium, in Benin, said this is in spite of the fact that the party and its candidate, Godwin Obaseki, have prepared well.
Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris has ordered the deployment of a Deputy Inspector General of Police, Assistant Inspector General of Police and three Commissioners of Police and additional twenty five thousand Police personnel to coordinate the security operations and facilitate the electoral process throughout the State.
