A former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the first executive governor of Edo state, John Oyegun, has declared his total support for Governor Godwin Obaseki's second term ambition.

He also urged all members of the APC and Nigerians who are against the governor to have a rethink.
Stating that the incumbent governor of Edo state is currently standing on dignity, Oyegun said Obaseki's administration has initiated policies that a people-oriented.
He also said that Obaseki-led administration has embarked on implement policies that are a total reflection of the dreams and aspiration of the founding fathers of the state.
Oyegun said: “Given the way you became governor, given the role that you are playing today, given the kind of example that you are showing to Nigerians, people should be ready to fight for the truth."
He noted that most people have failed to understand how difficult it is to reconcile a man who has truth with a man who wants to compromise those principles at all cost.
“So it is our prayer that courage will not fail you. That the people of your state will stand by you and assure you that we will stand by you,” Oyegun added.
