The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Dr Pius Odubu has assured the people of Orhionmwon Local Government Area that the agenda of the All Progressives Congress, APC governorship candidate, Mr Godwin Obaseki, is to create prosperity for the state.
Dr. Odubu who spoke at the APC ward campaign Thursday in Ugo’niyekorhiomwon said Obaseki as governor will not fall short of the peoples expectations as he has worked with the government in developing the communities in the state.
Odubu urged the people to ignore the political gimmicks of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as they are up to no good assuring the people of Orhionmwon that APC leaders in the area will ensure that the promises of the governorship candidate are brought to bear in the lives of everyone.
He said, “Obaseki who is coming to take over from our governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has said he will provide stable electricity for you. He was able to do roads, he will fix the light. What you people will do is that since he is working for us, the vote in this entire area should all go to the APC. If you vote for the APC we will be with you to ensure they fulfill on their promises.
“The road in this area is the longest in Edo State, in those days it was not like this. Oshiomhole has worked, Obaseki that is coming will work more than him.
“You should not allow the PDP to tell you what they are not capable of, we (APC) are in this town and we will develop the area to the fullest”. He urged.
Speaking shortly before the Ward to ward campaign of the APC in Orhionmwon, the Enogie of Ugo’niyekeorhiomwon, His Royal Highness Chief Edugie Ogierhiakhi Ogiugo in company of the Enogie of Ugboko, HRH Solomon Ewemade and other top palace Chiefs urged Obaseki to follow suit the development governor Adams Oshiomhole has done for the entire state.
He commended the governor for a job well done and prayed for him and the APC candidate.
On his part, the APC candidate, Mr Godwin Obaseki promised to decongest the high traffic in the city by opening up new towns through infrastructural development and establishment of industries that will give every community in the state a sense of belonging.
Obaseki who canvassed the support of the traditional institution in the provision of security for investors that are ready to come and invest in various parts of the State said, “The next state we are on to now is going to be of different challenges and that is why I have come here to solicit your support. The next phase is where we now begin to use the roads and schools for our development. We will post more teachers to our schools so that we can provide quality education but more importantly we need to expand the economy of our state and bring back our population.
“We have oil and gas around here it is now time to build new towns around us,” he stated.
