Senator Monday Okpebholo, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the upcoming September 21 governorship election in Edo State, has reaffirmed his commitment to conducting an issue-focused campaign.

Promising a departure from the current administration’s governance style, Okpebholo emphasized his dedication to addressing key concerns affecting the people of Edo State if elected.


In a statement released by his Media Office, Okpebholo outlined his agenda, which includes prioritizing quality and affordable healthcare, education, road infrastructure, security, food security, social welfare programs, housing, ICT, and agriculture.

He assured voters that his administration would rely on his extensive experience to propel Edo State into becoming an economic powerhouse in Nigeria.


Highlighting his interventions alongside APC leader Senator Adams Oshiomhole, Okpebholo mentioned the return of contractors to federal road projects abandoned by previous administrations.

He pledged further collaboration with the federal government to bring more development initiatives to the state.

Encouraging supporters to maintain focus on issue-based campaigning, Okpebholo emphasized his commitment to inclusivity, promising to address concerns from all segments of society.

He particularly emphasized the importance of respecting traditional institutions, contrasting his approach with what he described as the current administration’s disregard for them.

Asserting confidence in victory, Okpebholo and his running mate, Dennis Idahosa, pledged direct engagement with the electorate to address their grievances and garner support.

Refuting challenges from opponents, he dismissed them as inexperienced “baby politicians” and expressed readiness to teach them a lesson on Election Day.

Meanwhile, the Edo State chapter of the APC cautioned against moves to resist individuals seeking to join the party, following protests against the potential re-admission of former party members.

Reacting to objections raised against figures like former Speaker Kabiru Adjoto and former Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu returning to the APC, party leaders emphasized the need for unity and inclusivity within the party.
