BENIN – Former Governor of Kogi State, Prince Abubakar Audu, has advised the people of Edo State to support Governor Adams Oshiomhole’s re-election bid, because of his performance since assumption of office.
He spoke at a fund-raiser for Governor Oshiomhole in Benin City, weekend, where N730 million was raised to fund the governor’s second term re-election.
Prince Audu, who was chairman of the occasion, said Oshiomhole needed consistent support in the next four years to enable him complete the projects he had embarked upon.
He said: “Oshiomhole is a man you can trust . He has given water to communities that did not have water, roads, schools, and healthcare to the people across the state. Look at the dualization projects on the streets in Benin City, I could not recognise them and I could not believe it.”
He said Edo people should not allow the dynamic governor to be rigged out because they cannot afford to disappoint the children.
“Do not lose this opportunity God has given to you because it comes only once. As long as Oshiomhole is alive, they cannot win election in Edo State, that is why they wanted to take his life,” he added.
Former governor of Edo State, Chief John Oyegun, who described Oshiomhole as the architect for modern Benin City and Edo State, enthused that the people of the state have finally seen the desired change in the state since the enthronement of democracy.
“We are happy that the governor has great plans to bring changes to Edo State and only need to give him the support because he had performed. His name is a brand name,” he noted.
