…Governor Obaseki says the crux of the political feud was connected to state’s treasury
Edo State Governor who is contesting the governorship election in the state under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Godwin Obaseki, campaigned at Etsako Central Local Government on Tuesday.
He addressed his supporters and told the people that his administration would execute more capital projects in developing the state if re-elected into office next month.
The governor also affirmed that the people of the state should vote for the PDP to ensure the furtherance of infrastructural development, including the construction of Anegbette- Uromi road among others.
“This election, all of you must come out. If you don’t come out to vote, if you don’t protect your vote, God forbid we don’t want to go back.
“This election is an election for progress. It is an election for us to go forward, for us to build more schools, for us to get more teachers, for us to do more roads in Wards 9 and 10,” Obaseki said in Pidgin.
He also stated that some people were hell-bent on upsetting his efforts at delivering the dividends of democracy to residents of the state.
While the governor did not mention names of his detractors, he pointed out that the political feud which had lately disrupted the atmosphere of the state was as a result of the state’s treasury.
Those in attendance of the campaign were the Chairman of PDP Campaign Council, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Edo Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu among other party officials.
Governor Obaseki is banking on his achievement and influence of the PDP to defeat his biggest rival of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, and other candidates in the September 19 election.
