Youths in Edo State on Tuesday expressed gratitude to Governor Godwin Obaseki for taking the state out of the woods and placing it on the world map for good.
They also thanked him for running a transparent and accountable government.
“Governor Godwin Obaseki has performed excellently to the envy of Adams Oshiomhole and other foes. He has not misappropriated public funds and will never do it” the young men and women under the aegis of the Edo Youth Movement said.
Chairman of Edo Youth Movement, Dr. Gabriel Obanor in a statement in Benin said the youths eulogized Obaseki for being above board in the discharge of his duties.
The statement commended Obaseki for pursuing justice, creating opportunities for them and providing meaningful developmental projects across the state as well as ensuring equity and fairness in appointment to political offices.
“Governor Godwin Obaseki wants to make Edo State prosperous. He is moving with great zeal and vigour to make the difference.”
The youths advised Oshiomhole and his co-travellers to define the objectives and strategies of their political campaigns more clearly than degenerating to abuses, lies and wild allegations.
“We have a governor with a listening ear. We have a governor that is committed to the development of the state. We have a governor that is providing responsible, accountable and transparent leadership to the people.
They thanked the governor for embarking on measures to protect the environment and making it safer for the people.
They also congratulated the governor for the massive infrastructural development Edo State has witnessed in the last forty three months.
“Governor Godwin Obaseki has over time built for himself the integrity for redeeming promises made to the people. He will continue to work for the interest of the good people of Edo State”
Particularly, the youths praised Obaseki for his honesty and bravery in the management of the state as well as his inclusive strategy.
The youths appealed to the electorate to vote the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), saying Oshiomhole and his associates are working against God and the good people of Edo State.
“Edo State is not a breeding ground for irresponsible politicians, dissidents and men who know little and care more about their selfish interest. Governor Godwin Obaseki will execute more people oriented programmes in his second term” the youths said.
