Obaseki reaffirms commitment to welfare of Edo people

Benin – APC governorship candidate in Edo Godwin Obaseki has restated his commitment to the welfare of Edo people if voted into office.

Obaseki spoke on Friday when he addressed traders and residents of Evbareke motor spare parts market and environs during his campaign.

He said that with his stints in the private sector, he understood the challenges of businessmen.

Obaseki noted that though the outgoing administration had done well in view of the administration’s scorecard, there was still more work to be done.

He said that it was on the basis of this that continuity in programmes could not be ruled out.

Obaseki said he would continue from where the outgoing administration would stop and ensure that roads, schools, and other infrastructure not renovated or reconstructed were tackled.

He, however, said in spite of this, his administration’s main focus would be on empowerment through microfinance loans, agriculture and provision of technical schools.

Meanwhile, Gov. Adams Oshiomhole, has expressed optimism of the APC winning the forthcoming Sept. 10 governorship election in the state.

Oshiomhole said his conviction stemmed from the fact that the party had performed well in the state.

He noted that election periods were periods of making promises, but added that what mattered was fulfilling the promises made.

Oshiomhole urged the electorate not to make themselves gullible to empty political promises but to go out and vote wisely for the candidate they believed would deliver on his electoral promises.
