Confidence in Labour Party’s Victory
Kenneth Imasuagbon, an aspirant for the governorship under the Labour Party (LP) in Edo State, has expressed unwavering confidence in his party’s ability to secure victory in the upcoming gubernatorial election.
This declaration came as Imasuagbon officially obtained his Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms at the Labour Party’s headquarters in Abuja.
Criticism of Incumbent Governor Obaseki
Imasuagbon did not shy away from criticizing the incumbent Governor Godwin Obaseki, attributing his dissatisfaction to what he perceives as a lack of tangible results during Obaseki’s eight-year tenure.
Imasuagbon went on to assert that Obaseki has been merely “speaking English” without delivering substantial outcomes for the state.
LP’s Strength Against PDP and APC
Expressing confidence in the growing popularity of the Labour Party, Imasuagbon believes that his party is well-positioned to challenge both the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the upcoming election.
He emphasized his party’s appeal and highlighted its potential to emerge victorious.
Issuing a ‘Yellow Card’
In a bold move, Imasuagbon issued what he referred to as a ‘yellow card’ to both the PDP and Governor Obaseki, serving as a warning or challenge to the incumbent administration.
He particularly downplayed the influence of the APC in Edo State, suggesting a lack of significant presence or impact.
Confident Leadership Aspirations
Imasuagbon expressed his readiness to lead the state, proclaiming, “It is my turn to be the next governor of the state.”
He sees the Labour Party’s ticket as a symbol of positive change, loyalty, and obedience to the party, signaling a shift in governance for Edo State.
Criticisms of Incumbent’s Performance
Reiterating his discontent with Governor Obaseki’s performance, Imasuagbon stated, “Obaseki has spoken English for the last eight years, but he has done nothing for the people.”
He used strong language to express his dissatisfaction, rating Obaseki at a mere 2% and highlighting issues such as bad roads, insecurity, and alleged election rigging.
Zoning and the Quest for Justice
Imasuagbon weighed in on the issue of zoning, advocating for justice, fairness, and equity in the selection of the next governor.
He asserted that it is only right for Edo Central, which has never produced a governor, to have its turn in 2024.
Imasuagbon argued that his extensive knowledge of Edo State and his two decades of hard work make him the ideal candidate to lead the state.
Readiness for Primaries
Concluding his statements, Imasuagbon expressed readiness for any form of primaries, be it direct or indirect.
He exuded confidence, stating that he possesses all the necessary qualities to secure victory for the Labour Party in the upcoming election.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
