The All Progressive Congress candidate, Mr Godwin Obaseki has made this promise, coming September 28 governorship election that his administration will produce more than 100 millionaires in the state in four years if voted into power.
He made the promise while speaking with the Grassroots Youth Initiative (GYI) yesterday, in Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area, appealing to the people to use their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to support “the peoples-oriented plans already laid down by APC.”
“We are almost through with rebuilding of schools and we will finish them,” he said.
Obaseki further explained that achievement recorded by the APC in the last eight years in Edo State were glaring, calling on electorate not vote for different political party.
“We are launching our programme on agriculture called ‘the anchor programme’. Edo has been selected for seven products, oil palm, rubber, cassava, maize, livestock, poultry and fishery. Government is going to support you all to excel.”
He said, if the people vote for him to be governor they would no longer struggle to buy car, promising that his administration would produce 100 millionaires after four years.
On his part, the GYI President, Mr Osarobo Idahosa, said that they were ready to deliver votes for Obaseki , adding: “We are here to officially endorse you because we find you credible among other candidates.”
“But why are we doing schools? It is to correct all the mistakes that the PDP made in their years of governance that children didn’t want to go to school. Now, we have done it and we would get more teachers to teach the pupils and students.
