The member representing the Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Honourable Ndudi Elumelu, has urged the people of Edo State to rally round Governor Godwin Obaseki in the September 19 governorship poll.
Elumelu, who is also the Minority Leader, in a statement, urged the people to use the opportunity of the forthcoming governorship election to free the state from the shackles of greedy godfathers, which they had allegedly witnessed under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Minority Leader congratulated Obaseki for his emergence as the PDP governorship candidate and assured him of total support in his reelection bid.
He commended all the other PDP governorship aspirants, members and leaders of the party in the Edo state for exhibiting a high level of maturity, transparency, understanding, sacrifice and adherence to rules to make Governor Obaseki’s emergence smooth and rancor free.
Elumelu said as a democrat and development- oriented leader, Governor Obaseki had in the past found himself among strange bed-fellows in the All Progressives Congress (APC) where he was constantly resisting the greed and impunity of power-mongering political godfathers, which came at a huge cost to governance in Edo state.
He assured that in a party like the PDP better days lay ahead for Edo state in Governor Obaseki’s second term as the sanity and peace he would enjoy in the PDP would engender the right atmosphere for good governance for the benefit of the people of Edo state.
