Edo 2020: Group Drums Support For “Rice Man”
A group known as Edo Equity Movement (EEM), has described the entrance of Barr. Ken Imasuangbon into the Edo State gubernatorial race as a welcome development and called on all sons and daughters of the state both at home and in diaspora to support him to succeed.
Speaking through its Executive Secretary, Dr. Adedoyin Enafoghe in Abuja, the group which says it has monitored the humanitarian activities of the man popularly called Rice Man since the last 12 years insisted that the seasoned educationist is the right man to take over from the crisis ridden APC government of Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
In his words: “The Edo Equity Movement has resolved to throw its weight behind the aspiration of Rice Man and we are hopeful that Edo PDP will provide him the platform to contest and win in 2020.”
“You see, the problem is political parties not being sincere with their procedures. Imasuangbon came close to taking the tickets in the past, but at the last minute, party leaders would change the rules in the middle of the game to disfavour him.”
“He is very popular with the masses, everywhere he goes, people throng around him shouting, Rice man Rice man, but sadly, he has not been given the opportunity.”
Dr. Enaifoghe asserted that “with the consultations we understand he has been doing with top party leaders, both at the state and national levels, we are convinced that his time has come.”
Enaifoghe told newsmen that the EEM is ready to support “Rice Man” in every way they could.
He said: “We are aware that he has a very strong financial base to pursue his ambition, but I can also inform you that our movement is ready to support him and raise funds for him across the globe.”
We will be holding a meeting in Washington DC on August and some of our members from Houston, Atlanta and other parts of Europe will be around and they are all happy with the prospect of having Ken as our Governor come 2020.”
It could recalled that Mr. Ken Imasuangbon has been in the forefront of agitating for good governance and empowerment of the poor and the less privilege in the Edo state.
Imasuangbon had assured that he is in the race to win and fight hunger and starvation that has plagued Edo people for too long
