Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki has said he deserves a second term in office because he has fulfilled most of his vows to Edo people.
He said he also deserves another opportunity because he has to improve his developmental strides in the state.
He said this when he received members of the Benin Unity League at the Government House in Benin City.
His words, “No individual can determine who will become governor. Only God and the people can make the decision.
“I have said it clearly and I told my cabinet members that second term for me is non-negotiable. I am demanding it because I deserve it and I think I have earned it. We need to have it so we can continue what we are doing today.”
“I want to assure you that this is a fight in which we will prevail. We will fight and succeed. If anybody thinks I will back out, he must be day-dreaming because it is not my fight; it is a fight for the right purpose. I am not going to back off because I know victory is sure,”
“We earn less today than we did in 2016 when we came into power, so where is the money to waste? We know how much we inherited as debt; we have to service them. Some people sit and say we should focus on stomach infrastructure. I said no, that I will rather focus on mental infrastructure.”
Do you agree?
