Newly APC Decampee, Topa, Tasks Akoko-Edo indigenes, Edolites On Delivering Ighodalo

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

Former Chairman on Committee for Works and Housing in Akoko -Edo Local Government Area of Edo State, Hon Ogini Kingsley Topa, who just pitched tent with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today, has called on all Akoko-Edo indigenes and Edolites to join hands with the Obaseki’s led PDP to produce Asue Ighodalo as the next governor of the state.

Prior to his defection, Topa, a grassroot mobilizer popularly referred to as ‘ward 1 governor’ said he left the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) to join forces with the developmental stride of the Governor Godwin Obaseki to ensure he finished well.

Topa who spoke Thursday also noted that Obaseki’s recent appointment of Marvellous Omobayo from Akoko-Edo as the deputy governor was a clear demonstration of his love for the people of Akoko-Edo whom he claimed has been politically marginalized especially in top political offices despite being the largest council in the state.

“It time we play down the issue of party politics and embrace developmental politics for the benefit of our people.

“Obaseki has shown that he is the liberator of the oppressed and the marginalized in the state.

“Yes, I was in APC but with what Obaseki has done for the Akoko-Edo people by appointing one of our illustrious sons, Marvellous Omobayo to the exalted position of the deputy governor, it will go down in history as one who has the interest of the Akoko-Edo people at heart. We are very happy for that for giving us a sense of belongings.

“I’m using this opportunity to call on all Akoko-Edo indigenes and Edolites to join hands with the Obaseki’s led PDP to produce Asue Ighodalo as the next governor.

“I can assure you that Akoko-Edo is PDP and PDP is Akoko-Edo”, Topa said.
