Guber polls: Vote APC wherever you are in Nigeria, rep-elect tells constituents


Philip Agbese, a house of representatives member-elect, says his constituents should vote for the candidates of  the All Progressives Congress (APC) wherever they are residents in the country.


Agbese was elected to represent Ado/Okpokwu/Ogbadibo federal constituency of Benue in the house during the presidential election and national assembly elections that were held in February.


In a statement on Wednesday, the politician said the ruling party has formulated plans that would benefit all citizens.


“We have articulated plans that will benefit Nigerians, which will also benefit the people of my constituency that are in the diaspora within Nigeria, I mean those that are not based within the physical area of the constituency,” he said.


 “Their interest will be better served when they are in a state that is not in opposition to the central government.


“It is on this account that I urge them to vote for the All Progressive Congress’ candidates in any state in which they are resident. My people are well-traveled, they are industrious, and they make an impact when they participate in politics.


“That is why I want them to pitch their tent with the winning side. If they sit by and allow opposition parties to win the governorship seats in the places in which they are residents then it would become tough for them to have certain leverages.


 “While I want them to vote APC in whatever state they are in, I particularly urge those living in Lagos state to cast their vote for our governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.


“In his case, he is seeking re-election and his first term has shown that he is passionate about building public infrastructure in the APC tradition. Voting for Sanwo-Olu means continuity in building these infrastructures and it also implies that the state would not be in opposition to the government at the federal level.”
