Benin, Sept. 8, 2020 A pressure group, Concerned Elite Citizens of United Ogbe, on Tuesday lauded Gov. Godwin Obaseki’s infrastructure development in Edo, promising its unalloyed support for his re-election bid.
The Spokesman of the group, Peter Obobaifo, told newsmen in Benin that Ogbe indigenes of Benin were proud of the governor’s monumental achievements in Ogbe and its environs.
“The network of tarred roads in Ogbe, Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium which has been renovated to international and Olympic standard, and Odigie-Oyegun Staff Training Centre, among others are visible projects executed to our satisfaction.
“It is, therefore, unfair when some persons out of sheer mischief claim that the governor has not done anything or that nothing is on ground.
“The governor provided first class buildings and equipment at the Benin Institute of Technology formally called Benin Technical College.
“Renovation of schools and training of different categories of teachers, including the the Edo Best initiative, have all attracted commendation and investors to Edo,” he said.
Obobaifo emphasised that the group was particularly pleased with the governor for getting rid of touts and the nefarious activities of the Community Development Association(CDA).
According to him, if the forthcoming governorship election is genuinely a fight for the welfare of the people, the will of the people should be allowed to prevail through a free, fair, credible and peaceful election.
