The party also takes the opportunity to commend the efforts of the state governor, Mr. Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, and other security agencies in addressing the situation. They further appeal to the governor and security agencies to intensify their efforts for the swift and unconditional release of Dr. Tony Aziegbemi.

The letter read: “Edo Central PDP Senatorial District is appealing to all Christian all over the world to use today’s Palm Sunday to reflect and pray for the quick release of our State party Chairman, Dr. Tony Aziegbemi unhurt.
