Speaking shortly after the rally, one of the leaders of the party and the senatorial candidate for Edo Central, Okoduwa Akhigbe said “Our candidate’s visiting of over 500 local government areas out of the 774 is a first-hand experience of what it means to reside in these areas and that engagement revealed that the Nigerian populace are not happy with what is happening in Nigeria today a lot of things are going wrong.”
On the chances of his party, he said “who is going to vote for the APC? The party has failed and remember that the PDP was voted out because they were not doing well, and do you want to go back to the party that was worse than the party that was not doing well?”
