The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Friday, met with Edo women, urging them to vote for the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming State House of Assembly elections scheduled for Saturday, March 11, 2023.
Obaseki at the meeting with women from the 12 wards in Oredo Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state, said his government will sustain reforms and policies to ensure women's empowerment and welfare.
The governor, represented by his Chief of Staff, Hon. Osaigbovo Iyoha, noted that a vote for the PDP in the House of Assembly elections will help sustain the developmental strides of the administration.
He said, “The March 11, 2023 House of Assembly election is for Governor Godwin Obaseki to sustain efforts at developing the State and making life more meaningful and better for Edo people.”
Urging the people to reject the All Progressives Congress (APC), Obaseki said, "Plans are ongoing by the APC to rig their way through on March 11 so as to impeach the governor and stop his developmental programmes which have benefited the people of Edo State. Adams Oshiomhole and his party are planning to disrupt all the good works the governor is doing in Edo State.
"We will stop him and his plans to disturb the governor and his developmental strides in Edo State. We are appealing to the people to vote for PDP and stop the enemy of the Edo people from halting our progress as a people. All our votes must be one way. It must be PDP all the way.”
Director General Edo State PDP Campaign Council, Chief Osaro Idah, who commended the women for their support for the Obaseki-led state government, noted, "We appeal to PDP women in Oredo and the State to support Obaseki and ensure PDP candidates win the election come Saturday 11th March 2023. Please, let us mobilize for PDP candidates in the election and ensure they secure victory in the House of Assembly elections.”
Woman Leader in Oredo LGA, Hon. Meg Aigbokhae said, "We have 12 wards in Oredo and 619 units and all the women in these units are present here today. The election is critical and our party needs to be victorious as the party needs its members in the House of Assembly to be able to support the governor to continue with his developmental strides in the State.”
