The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Monday, urged the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to support the second term bid of Governor Godwin Obaseki to move the state forward.
The association said, going by its investigation, the Edo People are comfortable and pleased with the governor’s second bid for office.
Bishop Oyonude Kure, the CAN Chairman, made this clear while briefing newsmen at a conference in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
“We urged His Excellency not to relent in his effort towards the good governance of the state and to pursue the issue of inclusion by resolving the issue with aggrieved party members within the ambit of the rule of law so as to join forces together to ensure continuity in the art of governance of the state.
“Following the uncommon developmental strides made thus far by the administration of Obaseki, the Edo people are convinced that his choice was not misplaced and are therefore grateful,” Oyonude said.
Kure revealed that the association had separately met with Oshiomhole and Obaseki on October 31st and November 3rd respectively, with a view to resolving the impasse between both men.
He added that despite the move, the war had degenerated into a national debate.
