Former PDP governorship aspirant, Mr. Kenneth Imansuagbon
Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant and educationist, Mr. Kenneth Imansuagbon, on Saturday formalised his return to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in his ward in Ewohimi, Esan South-east Local Government Area of Edo state.
Before his sojourn in PDP where he contested for the governorship primaries in 2012, Imansuangbon was a founding member and a major financier of the then AC, which is today APC.
Popularly known as ‘Rice Man’ because of his annual rice sharing to the poor in Edo State, Imansuangbon was received formally into the APC by the leader of the party in the area and brother to the late first lady of Edo state, Mr. Victor Eboigbe, and the APC chairman in the council, Mr. Chris Aghughu.
Shortly after receiving him in his ward, the party leaders proceeded to the council headquarters Ubiaja, where Imasuagbon was received by about eight members of the state House of Assembly including the Speaker, Victor Edoror.
Speaking at the occasion, Imasuagbon expressed gratitude to elders and people of Ewohimi for the warm reception they gave to him and appealed to the people of Esan to continue to support the administration of Governor Oshiomhole.
