Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress have have resolved to ensure that the loss suffered by the party in last Saturday ’ s Edo State governorship election , is not repeated in Ondo , newsmen has learnt .
It was gathered in Abuja , on Friday, that unlike the scenario which played out in Edo State ; where most of them were allegedly non – committal to the party ’s campaign efforts , the governors have resolved to ensure that the party doesn’ t suffer the same fate in Ondo .
A top ranking member of the party, who pleaded anonymity for fear of retribution , said , “ We all know what happened in Edo . Our governors were hurt and justifiably so. They came together to plead with the National Leader of the APC , Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and a former National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole for Akinwunmi Ambode , they were ignored and they let it slide but the case of Edo became a case of ‘ one snub too many . ’
“ They left their states and moved from Abuja to Lagos and pleaded that Governor Godwin Obaseki should not be humiliated, but it was all to no avail .
“ To make matters worse , Oshiomhole became the face of the campaign despite several appeals . Most of our governors simply stayed back and allowed Oshiomhole and his two friends , Imo State Governor , Hope Uzodinma and his Kano State counterpart , Abdullahi Ganduje, to enjoy themselves .”
