PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari says Godwin Obaseki and Rotimi Akeredolu of Edo and Ondo states should be returned as Governors, citing their performances.
Former National Chairman of All Progressives Congress -APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun in an advertorial published in some national newspapers on Thursday, said he was aware that President Buhari had endorsed Obaseki and Akeredolu.
According to Odigie-Oyegun, Buhari thought that the only reason President Obaseki and Akeredolu should not return is, if the duo did not aspire to be number one citizens of their respective states for another four years.
“Our democracy of course has no room for imposition, so the party must accept and also present members that offer themselves to serve in the positions being occupied by the incumbent governors,” he said.
Odigie-Oyegun said, “I also welcome most warmly the news that Mr President has firmly endorsed the agreement reached to settle the disruptive leadership crisis at the national level that was threatening the very existence of the APC.
