A coalition of some registered political parties, under the aegis of Coalition of Political Parties (CPP), in Edo on Friday endorsed the re-election of the governor, Godwin Obaseki, and his deputy, Philip Shaibu, for another four years.
The Chairman of Social Democratic Party (SDP), and CPP in the state, Collins Oreruan, told journalists at a news conference in Benin that the political parties had collapsed their structures to massively support the governor’s re-election bid.
Mr Oreruan said, “We resolved that instead of acting as individual entities, it will be more effective to support the governor as a block with our existing party structures across the state.
“We also advise our governorship candidates of our respective parties to withdraw their aspirations and join hands with the governor to consolidate on the growth, developmental legacies and foundation he has laid in his first tenure.
“We shall work in synergy with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to mobilise voters at the grassroots for the re-election of the governor.
The CPP chairman listed some of the political parties to include Social Democratic party, SDP), United Peoples Party (UPP), Kowa Party, Accord Party, Action Democratic Party (ADP), African Action Congress (AAC), African Democratic Party (ADP), and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
