Elders in Esan South East/Esan North East endorse APC House of Reps candidate, Ikpea

As the February 16, 2019 general elections draw closer, elders in Esan South East/Esan North East Federal Constituency have endorsed the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the House of Representatives seat, Hon. Joseph Ikpea, a move they described will attract more projects to the area.

The elders gave their endorsement during a meeting where they assured the candidate of their support.

The elders said they are confident that their support for Joseph Ikpea, will attract more development to the area from the APC-led Federal and State Governments.

An Elder in Ugboha Community in Esan South-Esat, Pa John Okorumu, said that Joseph Ikpea is the preferred choice of people in the area to represent them in Abuja, adding, “We have seen what the governor in partnership with the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari is doing with the road construction going on. It will only make sense to support Ikpea to represent us there in Abuja, so that he can work with the President and the governor to make the other projects a reality.”

Okorumu said that Esan South-East cannot afford to be in the opposition anymore, noting “Governor Obaseki and President Buhari have laudable plans for our area. We are coming out enmasse to vote for Buhari as president, John Osagie Inegbedion as Senator and Joseph Ikpea as member of the House of Representatives.”

Other candidates of the APC in Edo Central include John Osagie Inegbedion, as Senatorial candidate for Edo Central; Patrick Idiake, who is vying for the esan central, Esan West and Igueben Federal Constituency seat at the House of Representatives; Hon. Sunny Ojiezele for EDHA seat Esan South-Esat Constituency, among others.

Another elder in Ubiaja community in Esan South East, Pa Sunday Ojiefo, said voting for candidates of the APC is logical considering the developmental strides of Governor Obaseki.

“We have seen the governor’s vision on sustainable wealth for us in Esan South-East, especially the programme on forest regeneration. In the last three years, if we had the opportunity of having a senator and House of Representatives member working in support of Governor Obaseki, we would have gotten the federal government’s support on the forest regeneration programme earlier.”
