Chairman of Edo State PDP Campaign Council ahead of the Edo 2020 governorship election, Dan Orbih has said the candidate of the APC, Pastor Osagie Ize Iyamu’s ‘Simple Agenda’ is vague.
Orbih speaking to members of the party at awards 3,4,7 and 10 in Esan Local Government said the agenda won’t solve the economic problems created by former Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
Orbih said the election is not just about Godwin Obaseki, incumbent governor of the state and the party’s governorship candidate but about the future of Edo State.
He appealed to the people to cast their votes en-masse for Governor Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Rt. Hon. Comr. Philip Shaibu, to further consolidate their first term achievements.
Urging the people to reject the APC and its candidate, Orbih disclosed that Oshiomhole left huge economic problems and financial debt which the incumbent Governor Obaseki has been working tirelessly to solve.
He said: “Oshiomhole left a lot of problems before leaving as governor and no Simple Agenda can solve such problems. Obaseki is the only man that has the solutions to these numerous challenges facing the state.
“Oshiomhole neglected Ekpoma roads, and the roads became death traps but Obaseki came and addressed the issue, making the roads motorable. Obaseki met empty treasury but through prudent management of resources, he has placed Edo on the threshold of development.”
A PDP leader in Ward 4, Mrs. Philomena Ihenyei, said the ward is the largest in Esan land, promising to deliver the entire votes to the governor come September 19, 2020.
In his comments, Obaseki said Ekpoma is important to his administration, assuring that his government will continue to build infrastructure; construct more roads and ensure improvement in electricity to boost economic development in the area.
