Chei !! Monarchs reaffirm support for Oshiomhole
Oshiomhole ahead of the July 14 governorship election.
The Otaru of Igarra, Oba Adeche Saiki 11, gave the assurance at Igarra in Akoko Edo Local Government Area, when the governor visited his palace yesterday.
“We have resolved that come July 14 we are going to do our best to give you not less than 90 per cent of the votes.
“ I and my people have resolved to do just that. By the grace of God we are going to do it just that way.
“The traditional rulers of Edo North, if I may let you know, have jointly resolved to say we are going to support the governor in July,” he said.
The monarch said this is the first time a governor has emerged from Edo North.
“He has done a lot more than his predecessors.
“We have jointly resolved that we are going to support you, we are going to fight for your victory, not only to win but we are fighting that you win with more than 90 per cent.
“I am conscious of the fact that God has ordained your coming back.
“Coming back not to repeat but to continue what you have started. God will give you the strength and wisdom to succeed.”
Oshiomhole thanked the traditional rulers for their support, adding that to whom much is given much is expected.
According to the governor “Edo has been mismanaged and under-governed.
“Its resources were abused by the previous parties that governed the state for 10 years and it would take quite sometime to make up for the ground lost.”
A former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Edward Osado, former councillors and a former Youth Leader of the party, Peter Ekun, were among those who led over 4,000 others to join the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in two rallies in Okpella and Akoko Edo yesterday.
The former PDP chairman said: “Oshiomhole is an encyclopaedia of good governance for the people of Edo State. I know him as a man that does not go back on his words. I have watched keenly and carefully while in PDP and I saw the good works, so I decided to join the ACN to be part of the development.”
