The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has described Mr. Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the party in the September 10 gubernatorial election in Edo State as the pillar of Governor Adams Oshiomhole’s administration.
Oyegun said this at the palace of the Odionwere and Clan Head of Jagbe in Agbede community, Etsako East local government area of Edo State, HRH Ferdinand Etakhine, when Governor Oshiomhole led the governorship campaign train on a visit to the royal father to present Obaseki and his running mate, Hon. Philip Shaibu, for his prayers and blessings as they rally support from the community.
He appealed to the people to allow the good work of the Oshiomhole administration to continue by voting massively for the APC governorship candidate.
According to the APC National Chairman, the decision to be in Jagbe community was to give people all over the state a sense of belonging that APC is a party for everybody and not a cabal who see some communities as superior over others.
He assured the people of the area that Godwin Obaseki would complete the Jagbe-Agbede road, which was abandoned by the PDP-led federal government, when he assumes office as the next governor of the state due to the economic value of the road in accessing various farms.
He also assured that the Magistrate Court in the area will be opened in the not-too-distant future to give the people quick access to justice.
He maintained that the APC in Edo State has shown that governance can be sweet and more meaningful than the PDP era of leaking roof in schools and lack of portable water in communities, adding that a vote for Godwin Obaseki will be a vote for development.
“Edo State suffered so much mismanagement under the PDP. What we need is a responsible government that will sustain the on-going development projects of the current administration and actualise the industrialization, youth employment and women empowerment agenda that will lead to a prosperous and sustainable future for all Edo people,” Oyegun said.
The APC Chairman appealed to the people of Agbede, Uzairue, Jagbe, and South Ibie to vote massively for Godwin Obaseki, and their interest and common good will be the focal point of his administration.
