Buhari’s former minister submits nomination form for Edo governorship polls
The immediate past Minister of State for Budget and National Planning Mr Clem Agba, has submitted his Expression of Interest and Nomination form at the APC secretariat in Abuja.
While addressing journalists, after he met with some members of the party’s National Working Committee, Agba said, “As a leader, let me quickly say if you don’t check on your people and inspect what they have been mandated to do, you will be disappointed. What I am bringing to Edo is the trust factor.
“Edo is the heartbeat of Nigeria and requires someone with capacity, who has worked at the national and sub national level and can fulfil the mandate of the people.
“Let me also add that I am fully prepared to transform the rural and urban sector of the state together.”
More aspirants have continued to defy the resolution of the committee set up at the instance of former Governor Adams Oshiomhole and Prof Julius Ihonvbere, which earlier reduced the list of contestants to four.
