Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has alleged that the immediate past National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Adams Oshiomhole and his party are working hard to win majority seats in the next House of Assembly elections.

He made the allegation at a meeting with women from the 12 wards in Oredo Local Government Area, Benin City, saying a a vote for the PDP in the House of Assembly elections would help sustain the legacy of his administration.
Obaseki, represented by his Chief of Staff, Hon. Osaigbovo Iyoha, said the March 11, 2023 House of Assembly election “is for Obaseki to sustain efforts at developing the State and making life more meaningful and better for Edo people.”
