Abuja: The Caucus of Edo State members of the All Progressives Congress at the National Assembly led by Distinguished Senator Francis Alimikhena have said they decided to mobilize themselves, members of the State House of Assembly, Party leaders, delegates from wards to local government levels and all well meaning Edo People to support and purchase the nomination and expression of interest forms for Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
They made the statement while addressing newsmen at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja after collecting the forms on his behalf and stressed that as Chairman of Edo State Economic and Strategy Team, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has served the state Probono (without any pay). They expressed satisfaction with the programmes that he would implement and is already unveiling on the field, which they say are innovative and spectacular is something to behold.
According to them, “We decided to purchase the forms for Mr. Godwin Obaseki because we want good governance to continue in Edo State so Edo will not slide back to the dung to dumps. We also see him as man who will be the actualizer, who will build upon the foundation of development that has already laid by the Comrade Governor. Just as Tinubu laid the foundation of development in Lagos State, Fashola thereafter built upon it and as now resulted in the emergence of the modern Lagos which Ambode is now taking even higher”
They added that, “Godwin Obaseki is an embodiment of good ideas that will take Edo State from its current level to the next level. He is the midwife of the blue print to which Comrade Adams Oshiomhole donated extreme courage and passion to make Edo what it is today. If you mention any two states which are able to pay salaries without resorting to Abuja, Edo State is one of them. If you know what Obaseki wants in terms of industrialization; He is the only who has the blue print and strategies to take Edo State out of it civil service State condition to a globally Industrialized State in Nigeria”.
