A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Edo State, Hon Henry Duke Tenebe, has restated his call on Edo indigenes for continuous support to Governor Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Hon Philip Shaibu, as the duo strives to transform the state into a major economic hub in the shortest possible time.
Reaffirming his believe in the capability of the duo to deliver on their electoral promises, Hon Tenebe called for total support from Edo indigenes, adding it represents the surest way to accomplish the set objectives and programmes of the government.
Hon Tenebe’s assertion is part of the Season’s Greetings to the people of the state, in which he eulogised the governor and his deputy for their clear-cut vision on how to harness the state‘s resources for the betterment of all.
According to Hon Tenebe, also a member of the State Transition Committee, Edo State is tremendously blessed with the fortune of having a visionary and experienced technocrat at the helm of affairs, pointing out, however, that the state would soon begin to reap the benefits of such.
He said he is very optimistic that Gov Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu would surpass their first term achievements during which every strata of governance in the state was not only revamped but refocused to deliver the dividends of jobs creation, educational reforms and inclusive growth to the people.
“Edo State has never had it so good. Gov Obaseki and Shaibu are helping to realise the dreams of an average Edo indigene, whether at home or in diaspora. What is required of Edo people is to support him in this onerous task so that our dear state can regain her lost glory”, he asserted.
Hon Tenebe also commended the PDP hierarchy in the state, led by its indefatigable state chairman, Dr Aziegbemin, for rendering support to the state government at a crucial moment like this, stressing all hands must be on deck in the struggle to improve the living conditions of the people of Edo State.
