Chairman of the Edo State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Campaign Council, Chief Dan Orbih, has described the erstwhile national Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comr. Adams Oshiomhole, as a man who does not keep to his promises.
Addressing party faithful in Afuze Ward 1, Owan East Local Government Area of the state, Orbih offered two reasons Oshiomhole should not be trusted.
He said: “Adams Oshiomhole never fulfilled any of the promises he made to the good people of Afuze during his time in office as governor of the state.
“He brought a signpost with Tayo Akpata University inscribed on it, to Afuze, on the eve of his election and later went to build a university in his country home, Iyamho.
“He told us that the current gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is a thief and can never be trusted with public funds, now he is parading him up and down, campaigning for him.”
The Edo State PDP campaign council chair continued: “We all have to stop him; this election about freedom for the people and will give Governor Obaseki free hand to work for us.
“Now that you have agreed that our governor should carry on with his good work, let us come out and vote for him massively on the 19th of September.”
On his part, Chieftain of the PDP and former gubernatorial aspirant, Kenneth Imasuangbon, noted: “Edo people are wholeheartedly for Obaseki and APC should forget this election. I can see the fortunes of Edo turning around.
“This election is about defeating the godfather, poverty and the people will come out victorious. This election is about freedom; it’s about freedom for the people; the poor; our women; students; market women and freedom for all, so that everyone will be able to live his or her life without the fear of godfathers.”
Addressing his supporters, Obaseki commended them for their support in the last three years and eight months of his administration, noting: “The World Bank has awarded funds for the revamp of the Institute of Physical Education, Afuze.
“I must complete the construction of Errah Road; I am more worried about how I will improve the livelihood of our people in Afuze, all the major roads here have been constructed while others are in our plans.
“This election is about freedom for our people and I urge you all to come out and vote PDP on September 19.”
