Obaseki Makes Assurances Of More Projects In 2022.
Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has stated that his government would continue to pursue programs and initiatives targeted at guaranteeing the state’s economic growth and improving people’s livelihoods.
As a result, he appealed for all people’ support and cooperation in achieving the government’s Making Edo Great Again, MEGA, program.
Obaseki said his administration was determined to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of the state during the opening of a prayer lodge at the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, headquarters in Benin City, yesterday.
While urging all stakeholders to work together for a better Edo, the governor urges residents to be aware of opponents who are hell-bent on inciting a crisis in the state for personal benefit ahead of the 2023 elections.
He said: “We are rehabilitating and constructing roads and street lights, building infrastructure and developing the economy of Edo State. We are ready to do more for the people of Edo State as my emphasis this year is on the people.
“We want to partner you, the PFN, because you are closer to the people and interact with them daily. We want to collaborate with you to be able to deliver the dividends of democracy to Edo people.
“We will also partner you to bring healthcare closer to the people through Edo-HIP, ensuring affordable healthcare to Edo people.
“PFN should pray for our administration as some people are envious of the successes and progress made so far, as they are working hard to ensure we fail. They propagate lies, saying the state is not peaceful, Christmas was not peaceful and no unity in Edo State.
“They have planned to continue to create more havocs because it is an election year, but we are not afraid because God is with us as we continue to build and develop Edo State.”
On her part, Chairman, Edo PFN, Mrs. Margaret Agbonifo, thanked the governor for his administration’s transformation projects across the state, adding: “As a state, we thank God for giving us a man like Godwin Obaseki, who loves, serves, cherishes God; a man who makes and fulfils his vows.”
