The September 10 2016 date for the Edo state governorship election has been described as a day Edo people would be liberated from the, “shackles of bad governance and underdevelopment”, perpetrated by the outgoing government in the state.
The PDP member representing Ovia at the House of Representatives, Abuja, Hon Omosede Igbinedion stated this yesterday at Odighi in Ovia Northeast during the campaign rally for the party’s governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
She said the PDP government with Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as governor of Edo state elected on this date will bring countless blessings to the state and its people in terms of responsible and humane governance that is committed to the development of all parts of the state.
According to Igbinedion, the date is critical to Edo’s future because voters across the state are now aware and confidently sensitive and so will turn out en masse to vote for a PDP government that will respect their rights, observe the rule of law and respect the Constitution of the country.
“I look forward to that day-September 10, it will be a day of liberation for the people of Edo state. The people have had enough and they are going to show that they have had enough of the outgoing governor and his government”.
Condemning the attack on her convoy when she went to attend the flag off of the Integrated Produce City, at Ugbokun village near Okada, facilitated by a private firm recently, Igbinedion said the incident was unfortunate because it was not an APC event.
“It shows the oppressive government that we have in Edo state today. It is unheard of; it is completely unethical! I consider it unfortunate that the outgoing governor will not realize that he is the Governor of Edo state and not the governor of APC”.
Igbinedion said she has every right to attend functions organized for the benefit of her constituency as their elected representative in the National Assembly and wondered why the Edo state government opposed her presence at Ugbokun.
“No matter what I shall not be moved. I shall not daunted by the activities of the governor in trying to stop work in constituencies which has PDP members as their representatives. In a truly democratic environment he should realize that every person deserves a chance to flourish”.
