Edo Guber: Agbomhere urges APC State Chairman, Tenebe, to reposition, restructure party ahead of poll

drums support for Senator Monday Okpebholo

In his usual commitment to the progress of the party, a governorship aspirant in the just concluded All Progressives Congress (APC) Edo State primaries and immediate past Zonal Organizing Secretary of the APC, Dr. Blessing Agbomhere, has urged the acting APC State Chairman, Khalifa Jarret Tenebe, to reposition and restructure the Party ahead of the governorship poll fixed for September this year.

Agbomhere made the statement in Abuja on Friday while responding to questions from newsmen on the brewing crisis in the party as a result of the concluded primaries which produced Senator Monday Okpebholo as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He called on the State Chairman to carry every party member along in preparation for the coming poll as the party gears up to reclaim Edo state from the People’s Democratic Party.

Agbomhere said he was aware of where the APC State Chairman was coming from and that is why everyone has a lot of respect for him.

According to him (Agbomhere), the Chairmanship position being given to Khalifa Jarret Tenebe is nothing compared to the role and the sacrifices the acting State Chairman had made in Edo State as a politician since the advent of democratic rule in 1999.

He also posited that Khalifa Tenebe was one of those Political Leaders that brought a former Governor of Edo State, Mr. Lucky Igbinedion into power and Professor Osariemen Osunbor as Governor of the State.

The Former National President of Law Students Association of Nigeria (LAWSAN), said; the Acting state Chairman of the APC in Edo state has worked with all the political actors in the state, at various times to succeed, and this has earned him the nick name ‘The Man Behind’, because once he stands with anybody politically, that person must succeed. He has practically cut his teeth in the politics of Edo State.

“The manner with which Khalifa Tenebe hosted the primaries and managed the fall out is a testimony to his political sagacity.”

He also added that when the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki was terrorising APC Members in the State, Mr. Jarret Tenebe came to rescue the party as the Deputy State Chairman then, noting that Tenebe is conversant with Edo State Politics.

According to the former South South Zonal Organizing Secretary of the party, the acting State Chairman now has the duty to reposition and restructure the Party for posterity sake to enable the APC win the forthcoming governorship election.

He said it would be a mark of honour to see that Khalifa Tenebe is the one that helped to return Edo State back to APC and that he is ready to give the State Chairman the necessary support and cooperation to succeed in his new assignment.

He also sued for support for the governorship Candidate of the APC, Senator Monday Okpebholo (SMO) a.k.a Akpakomiza to enable him and the party win the governorship election in a landslide come September this year.
