Former aide to Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, Andrew Momodu, has donated the sum of N5million for the re-election campaign of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Momodu, on Tuesday, made the donation on behalf of Anwain Progressives Union (APU), an umbrella body of the Anwain Clan, at the PDP governorship campaign rally in Ward 8, Anwain, Etsako west local government area of Edo state.
The DAILY VENDOR gathered that hundreds of All Progressive Congress (APC), leaders and members in the area, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at the rally.
Momodu assured the Governor that 6,000 votes from the ward would go for the PDP in the forthcoming election to appreciate him for attracting development to the area, particularly the ongoing Agbede-Anwain road construction.
He said: “The Anwain Progressives Union, the umbrella union of Anwain Clan, has resolved to support Governor Obaseki with N5million for his campaign. “We have collected our PVCs and have all resolved to give the governor 100 per cent of our votes come September 19, 2020. We are sure of giving you 6,000 votes from this ward.”
Speaking to supporters in Anwain and Idegun communities, Governor Godwin Obaseki promised to reciprocate the kindness offered to him by prioritising healthcare, education and agriculture, among others in his administration, if re-elected for a second term .
“Since I started this campaign, this is the only place where indigenes are donating money to support my campaign. I am very grateful,” the Governor stated.
