Edo guber: Obaseki neglected road, health infrastructures, schools – Okpebholo


The All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate for the September 2024 election in Edo State, Monday Okpebholo, has accused the incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki, of neglecting public infrastructure in the 18 LGAs of the state.

He said that if Obaseki had paid attention to this infrastructure, Edo State would have looked like any other urbanised community in other states.

Speaking to journalists in Calabar, Okpebholo said that if he wins the upcoming gubernatorial election, his government will give special attention to health, school, and road infrastructure.

He promised to re-enact Adams Oshiomhole’s infrastructural revolution when he was governor.

“We’ll declare an emergency on roads, schools, and health infrastructure in the 18 LGAs of the state.

“We will be taking a holistic approach to correct the decayed roads, schools, and health infrastructure that have been left unattended by the Godwin Obaseki-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“If the Obaseki-led administration had built upon what the government of Adams Oshiomhole did, Edo would have been competing with states like Lagos in terms of development.

“Our mission is to, from day one, hit the ground running and make Edo a better place, a place we can actually call our own, a place that everybody will be happy to see,” he stated.

Okpebholo said he will run an inclusive government if elected in the September 21 governorship election.

Okpebholo noted that he will adopt a bottom-up approach in running the affairs of the state.
