The Edo governor asked APC members to be united.
Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State on Friday assured the people of the state that he would learn from his past mistakes to be a better steward to them.
Mr. Oshiomhole gave the assurance in Benin at a luncheon organised for the All Progressive Congress (APC) leaders and members in the state.
He said his mistakes in the last five years were not deliberate and should not be held against him.
Mr. Oshiomhole said that the unity of the state was not negotiable, and that there was need for the party to remain formidable.
He said his administration was building a mass movement on the basis of popular participation and promised to improve on service delivery to the people.
The governor advised the party faithful to disregard rumour of deregistration of APC members, saying that politics was a business of numbers.
He commended the people of the state for tolerating the policies of his administration, and urged them to remain as one.
Earlier, Tom Ikimi, the APC national leader (South-South), had told the gathering that the registration of new members into the APC would begin soon.
He stressed that rather than end in January, the party had decided to re-strategise and would release the new programmes for registration and congresses soon.
In his goodwill message, Samson Osagie, representing Uhomwonde and Orhiowon Federal Constituencies, advised the governor not to relent in providing good service to the people.
He acknowledged that the state had witnessed more development in the last five years, and was counted among the states in the country “where the governor is working’’.
Mr. Osagie noted that because of the visible development, investors now visit the state to do business.
