“IT (INCUMBENCY) COULD HAVE BEEN A BIG PROBLEM IF THE GOVERNOR PERFORMS WELL WHILE GOVERNING HIS STATE. HE COULD HAVE BEEN AN ASSET TO THE PDP. BUT, I ASSURE YOU THAT THE GOVERNOR IS A LIABILITY. IN FACT, IT IS EVEN BETTER FOR US THAT WE ARE CONTESTING WITH A SERVING GOVERNOR WHO FAILED WOEFULLY.
“HE FAILED WOEFULLY IN THE AREA OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT. HE FAILED WOEFULLY IN THE AREA OF PROVIDING INFRASTRUCTURAL FACILITIES TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF EDO STATE, HE FAILED MOST WOEFULLY IN THE EXECUTION OF CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION IN THE STATE, ESPECIALLY PERTAINING TO THE LEGISLATURE.
“14 MEMBERS WERE OUT OF THE LEGISLATURE FOR 13 GOOD MONTHS. WHEN WE CALCULATED, WE SAW THOSE 14 LEGISLATORS ARE REPRESENTING 60 PER CENT OF THE POPULATION.ALL THEIR CONSTITUENTS ARE UNHAPPY THAT ELECTED LEGISLATORS WERE NOT GIVEN THE CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LEGISLATIONS IN THAT STATE.
“IN FACT, ALL THE LEGISLATIONS MADE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS ILLEGAL. SO, WE ARE READY TO FIGHT SOMEBODY WHO HAS FAILED AND IT IS AN ADVANTAGE TO US” — CHAIRMAN OF THE APC GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION CAMPAIGN FOR EDO STATE, GOVERNOR ABDULLAHI GANDUJE OF KANO STATE, AFTER EMERGING FROM A MEETING WITH PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI AT THE PRESIDENTIAL VILLA, ABUJA

“THREE WEEKS AGO, THE POLLS CLEARLY SHOWED THAT APC WAS GOING TO WIN BUT THE RESULT CAME OUT DIFFERENTLY FROM WHAT WE EXPECTED.
