Obaseki APC

The All Progressives Congress, APC Governorship candidate in the
September 10 election, Mr Godwin Obaseki has pledged to deliver
development like no other to the people of Edo state if voted as
governor.
Obaseki made this known in Afuze, Owan East Local government area of
Edo state where he noted that there is still a lot of work needed to be
done in the state after Governor Adams Oshiomhole.
The gubernatorial candidate said what the governor has done in the last
seven and half years is to lay a framework for what Edo is supposed to
be like adding that his government would not only focus on job creation
but on Education, human infrastructural development.
He said, “Over the last seven and half years, we have done a lot; we
have built many schools, provided water and reconstructed roads. We know
that they are only the scratch in the surface.
   “We promise to build the Afuze-Owan road, build more schools, put more
money in the college of Physical education and bring more industries to
Edo state.
“You have not seen anything yet, we are focus on the provision of
infrastructure, education, health, water and portable water to the
people of Edo state and we will continue to do so and also focus on
human development.

We will not only create jobs from agriculture, we will also from
mining, we are attracting a lot of mining companies into Owan East. They
are over 25 mining licenses in Owan East, we are talking with the
Minister for Solid Minerals to ensure we get investors to this place. So
by the grace of God, in another one year, you will see a lot of
investors coming to Owan East and this way, they will bring employment
and prosperity to Owan East.” He professed.

On the part, Governor Adams Oshiomhole said that “we have shown that
Edo is viable, Godwin’s task is to focus on how to get jobs for the
youths, because when we built roads we wanted to attract investors, when
we built schools, we wanted to develop the human capital and when you
develop the human capital the next task is for him to create the
environment for those who have gone to schools to be qualified for work.
You can see that this is not something that came out of the blues. 
“It is the product of the 20-year development plan for the state which
he chaired as Chairman up to the year 2020. nation’s don’t grow on the
basis of the rule of the thumb, everything in the life of a nation is
the vision, the clarity of purpose of the leadership.

“When the leadership cannot see beyond the nose, he cannot do what he
cannot imagine. We are clear of the past, we are clear of our
destination, we have identified the route, Godwin will take us to the
next level.”
