Lawmaker declares September 10 Freedom Day for Edo people

Peoples Democratic Party, PDP member representing Ovia Federal Constituency, Barrister Omosede Igbinedion has described September 10, 2016 as the day Edo people will be free from the “shackles of bad governance and underdevelopment” which they have found themselvesunder the present administration in the state.

Omosede disclosed this at a rally of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in Odighi , Ovia North East Local Government Area of Edo State.

She said with Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as governor, Edo will witness countless blessings, responsible and humane governance committed to the development of all parts of the state.

According to Igbinedion, the date is critical to Edo’s future because voters across the state are now aware and confidently sensitive and so will turn out en masse to vote for a PDP government that will respect their rights, observe the rule of law and respect the Constitution of the country.

“I look forward to that day-September 10, it will be a day of liberation for the people of Edo state. The people have had enough and they are going to show that they have had enough of the outgoing governor and his government”, he said.

Condemning the attack on her convoy when she went to attend the flag -off of the Integrated Produce City, at Ugbokun village near Okada, facilitated by a private firm recently, Igbinedion said the incident was unfortunate because it was not an APC event.

“It shows the oppressive government that we have in Edo state today. It is unheard of, it is completely unethical. I consider it unfortunate that the outgoing governor will not realize that he is the Governor of Edo state and not the governor of APC” she said.

Igbinedion said she has every right to attend functions organized for the benefit of her constituency as their elected representative in the National Assembly and wondered why the Edo state government opposed her presence at Ugbokun.
