Abuja - The provision of education and clean water as well as infrastructure development is featuring prominently in the Edo State’s policies ahead of the general election set for next year.
“We will continue build and rehabilitate more schools because education is the foundation for our tomorrow. We will make our schools the most beautiful and attractive, in the past, only the children of the rich attended beautiful schools. Politics is about the people, it is about development, it is not about sharing rice and sugar during election periods. I want to assure Edo people that APC is on a liberation movement and there is no going back what is dead is dead,” read a statement Peter Okhiria, Press Secretary to Governor, Adams Oshiomole, released.
The statement coincided with the APC welcoming Peter Akhugie, the Etsako Central Local Government Area councilor who defected from the ruling People Democratic Party (PDP).
“Now that PDP is pronounced dead in sin, they will not resurrect. We will emphasis development, the right of the child to good schools, the right of the woman to clean water, the right of our people to good roads. Even after my tenure, we will have APC governments that will continue to work for our people, there is no resurrection for PDP. While Dan Orbih’s people are moving to a progressive party, he remains in Benin telling lies to people but politically he is finished at home. By the time I am out of government I will be proud to go round Edo state to say this is what I did and my successors on APC platform will build on where we stopped,” Oshiomhole was quoted as saying.
Oshiomhole promised the people of Ogbonna that the state government would immediately deploy the Rapid Response Agency to sink a second borehole in the community to be reticulated to various quarters and homes.
