Afie Braimoh Joins Owan East PDP Leaders to Inaugurate Campaign Council

By DADA AYOKHAI

The Leadership of the People’s Democratic party, PDP, in Owan East LGA as a way of demonstrating her seriousness and the resolve not to concede an inch of space to the opposition parties in the locality recently inaugurated the party’s campaign council.

The Campaign Council which was inaugurated in Afuze, the administrative headquarters of the local government is charged with the responsibility of preparing the party ahead of the State and National Assembly elections in the area.

The presence of the state commissioner of Business, Trade, and Cooperatives, Hon Afie Braimoh, at the event was an added moral booster as the crowd of party enthusiasts who thronged the venue of the inauguration marveled at both her beauty and gait.

Hon Afie is the daughter of Senator Yisa Braimoh, the PDP leader in both Owan East and West respectively. She is also the representative of Owan East LGA in the state executive council.

The affable and hard-working commissioner, rated as one of the technocrats in the Gov Obaseki cabinet who have greatly helped to propagate some of the policies and programmes of the administration, especially the promotion of the local MSME’s and the hugely successful “Made in Edo” mantra, has come of age politically.

Interestingly, from being a greenhorn in politics, tucked under her battle-tested politician father’s tutelage, both her mastery of the game and the influence that she is beginning to peddles in her local government area are so compelling that many wonder how she is able to juggle her roles as a full-time commissioner with active politicking.

Hon Braimoh took out time to hold a strategic meeting with the women leaders of the party on how to ensure Owan votes goes to the party candidates at various levels from Presidency to House of Assembly.

The commissioner is expected to deploy her expertise in technology and over 25 years of Project management to work out a template that would help drive all Owanites to the polls to do the needful for the party candidates.

There was, indeed, a heavy presence of top PDP stalwarts of Owan East LGA, and the Director of Election management in the state, Hon Henry Tenebe and other party enthusiasts at the venue to witness the formal inauguration of the Campaign Council headed by Hon Ambrose Imoode, as its Director-General.

Hon Imoode, the DG of the Campaign Council, is regarded as dean of Owan East politics and a hard-nut grassroots mobilizer who knows his political onions like the palm of his hand.

He served as former Owan East council chairman, Special Adviser to the former Gov Lucky Igbinedion, and commissioner in the National Assembly Service Commission,.

The main task of the Campaign Council is to make sure they delivered the party candidates in the two elective positions.
Hon Jimah Ijegbai is flying the party’s banner for the Owan federal constituency while Hon Aminu Kadiri Okondo on the other hand, seeks to represent the Owan East constituency at the Edo State House of Assembly.

Without much ado, the Hon Imoode-led Council immediately swung into action and held its maiden strategy meeting during which the Council deliberated extensively on the state of affairs in the local government and ended up setting up various sub-committees to help speed up its work as well as to reach its stated political goal of ensuring that the candidates of the party emerged victorious at the polls within the shortest possible time.
