According to him, “by the grace of God, by September, when you people would have voted for me and Ogie, more upward movement will come.

“I want you to remain strong. I want you to remain happy. Don’t be afraid of anything. God is in control. Everybody should get their PVCs ready for the September 21 election.”

“We will vote for PDP to ensure that the votes are counted and we will follow it to the collation centre until we are announced the winner and the state will continue to prosper,” he said.

Other chieftains of the party that participated at the solidarity rally were Rev. Olu Martins, Deputy Director, Media and Publicity of the PDP Governorship Campaign Council, Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Hon Blessing Agbebaku and PDP lawmakers in the House.
