Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state has said in Benin that he was seeking re-election as governor of the state in the 14 July governorship election to enable him complete the various ongoing projects in the state.
Oshiomhole, a former labour leader, who is contesting the governorship election on the platform of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), made this explanation during a grand rally to round off his campaign for the election.
“We are seeking your mandate to remain in office to completely restore the lost glory of Edo state. We have constructed roads with street light, we have provided water for the people, and we have built schools. Our children no longer seat on the bare floor in classrooms without roofs. We do not want these projects to be abandoned,” Oshiomhole said.
Oshiomhole who said in less than four years of his government, Edo state is now working again, said his administration has scored high marks in the building of roads with street lights, building of schools, provision of water and other infrastructural development.
According to him, Nigeria continues in abject poverty as a result of bad leadrship, adding that “Nigeria has the money to meet all the needs of Nigerians, but Nigeria does not have enough money to meet the needs of politicians who feed on the resources the nation.”
