Ahead of Edo State governorship election, the candidates of the Labour Party, Barrister Olumide Akpata and that of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Monday Okpebholo have been declared incompetent to govern the State, hence, they should be rejected at the polls.

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Dr Isaiah Osifo stated this on Sunday in Benin, adding that the State cannot afford to allow incompetent people to access power at this time, given that Edo need to recover its lost glory.

According to him, the leadership of LP and that of the APC were conducting their affairs in the same manner, pointing out that there both have nothing to offer.

Osifo stated that it was clear from their antics that once any of the political party records success in an election, the leadership would transmogrify into a gang of fraudsters and personalise the political party, insisting that they should not be allowed to come near success in the governorship election.

He said that both parties have fraudulent leadership tendencies that cannot produce good candidates that will eventually lead to good governance, adding that leadership tussle rocking the LP showed characters that have hijacked the party, which should be a pointer of dangerous days ahead.

He said: “The gubernatorial primaries of LP in Edo State is being challenged by Barrister Ken Imansuangbon and it is my hope that the judiciary will be upright and the outcome will bring hope of democracy in Edo State.

“My decision to distance myself from LP and to contest on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is to work with all good men and women in LP, in all the political parties and non-partisan stakeholders of democracy in Edo State to bring democracy and good governance to Edo State.

“The people of Edo State are intelligent and should know that the characters that are parading themselves as leaders of LP in Edo State and in Nigeria are despicable and should be avoided. The leadership of LP has failed and Edo electorates should refuse to endorse a fraudulent political leadership.

“I’m committed to internal democracy, political party discipline and good governance for the collective interest of the people of Edo State.
