A former aide to the former APC National Chairman, Mr Andrews Momodu has withdrawn to the PDP, even as he supported with the sum of N5 million the re-election of Obaseki.
However, the Eramah Anwian of Anwain Kingdom in Etsako East LGA of Edo North, HRM Mufutairu Oare, has assured Obaseki that whatever he needs from members of the Anwain community will be increased for him during the governorship election.
When reassuring Obaseki of their support, the Eramah Anwian said: “Mr. Governor, we are assuring you that you are at home. This community road has been a disaster for over a thousand years until your interferance. We were cut off from Edo State until you gave us a good road that integrated us back as members of the state. We cannot forget such a good gesture. The government comes and goes and no government remembers that we exist. But Obaseki came and connected us back to the state through good roads.
“It took more 24hours to come out from the community into the main road but today, the story has changed, it’s no longer the same. In less than an hour, you can now go to various parts of the state due to a good network of roads.
“We are preparing a carnival to receive you on the 12th of this month but you came today, otherwise, you would have known what is called a reception of honour. Go to other areas to campaign, you don’t need to campaign in this community because this community has no other option than the PDP. Anywhere Obaseki/Shaibu stands, that’s where the entire Anwain community will stand.”
The main point of the visit to the community was the bestowal of a traditional title of performance on the governor and his deputy as Ozemonya and Ozonya of Anwain Kingdom, respectively.
