Edo 2024: Imansuangbon’s Govt Will Have Human Face, Transparent, Group
By Ikhili Ebalu, Benin City
A group under the aegis of Imansuangbon Solidarity Movement (ISM) has said that the Labour Party (LP) governorship hopeful for the 2024 poll in Edo state, Barr. Ken Imansuangbon aka ‘the Riceman’ would run a transparent government with human face.
The convener of Imansuangbon Solidarity Movement (ISM), Eng. Isaac Ehigiamusoe stated this in a statement made available to newsmen in Benin.
Ehigiamusoe also said that Imansuagbon who is an educationist and philanthropist, would bring to bare his wealth of experience as an employer of labour in the governance of Edo state.
The ISM convener therefore appealed to the people to ensure the nomination and subsequent election of the “Riceman” as Governor of the state come 2024.
According to him, “Am sure we are all aware of the state of things in Edo state presently where the peoples voices have been silent by the governor; anyone who dare speaks as punished by way of property confiscation or demolition.
“No one knows what is happening in the state any longer; how contracts are awarded or for how much.
“There is so much secrecy in the governance of Edo state now. While other states are busy publishing what is accruing to their states as revenue and from what sources, we can’t say the same about that of our dear state.
“Our situation have become that of the more you look, the less you see. They only let us see what they want us to through lies they chum out social media.
“All these will become a thing of the past as Imansuangbon hope to ensure transparency in governance and ensure that the Peoples voices are hears when it comes to policy and programmes of the government.”
While noting that the LP remained the party to beat in the poll, Ehigiamusoe, however, urged the party to nominate and field Imansuangbon as their candidate of the (LP) truly desire to takeover the governance of Edo in 2024.
“We must not miss it this time. LP must remain united and ensure that an experience candidate with the reach is fielded to square up with the candidates of other political parties.
“Imansuangbon does not only have the experience, he has the reach and he is also well connected to the people across the three senatorial districts of the state,” he stated.
