An APC Government come November 12 2016 with Mr Godwin Obaseki at the helm will cut create 200, 000 jobs in Edo state in the next four years of its tenure. Mr Obaseki speaking at the flag off of the APC Governorship primaries yesterday said the jobs will be created through massive investment in Entrepreneurship development schemes. Reading from a prepared speech which was at the mercy of the wind, the businessman turned politician commended outgoing governor Oshiomhole for his development strides promising to sustain the
legacies. “The totality of transformation we have witnessed in the last seven and spans all facets of development today, we have witnessed a solid foundation policies, transformation of our infrastructures but most importantly we have witnessed the most inclusive of development for Edo state; these frameworks that can receive sustainable progress and continued development of our dear state, all of these proceed from the visionary leaders of Oshiomhole” He pledged that his government when elected would focus on agriculture as hub of the state for industrialization, ensure technical
and vocational skills development and women empowerment as well as creation of an enabling environment for peace and harmonious living amongst all segments of people in the state. On his part Governor Oshiomhole who listed some of his numerous achievements tasked the people to have confidence in the administration of President Buhari in its drive to fight corruption and reposition a nation that was bastardized by previous governments under the PDP. He also taunted the opposition party’s leadership for fielding Ppastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as its governorship candidate, alleging that as a man of God he allegedly is faced with telling the public what he did with the N700m campaign funds meant for purchase of arms to fight against terrorism. The state APC chairman, Barrister Amslem Ojezua said the ruling APC has started harvesting from the PDP self inflicted crisis and disunity since the members have not known peace. He said “our enemies are disarray; some time ago some evil people met in Asaba and said they want to take over Edo state and since then they have not known peace. Who is the governorship candidate of PDP but Obaseki is the candidayte of the APC.
