Governor Godwin Obaseki has stated that he deserves to be re-elected in the forthcoming Edo State Governorship election.

Speaking at the Government House, Benin while swearing-in Communication and Orientation Commissioner Stewart Efe, Obaseki said his administration has recorded developmental strides.

The Edo governor urged the newly appointed Commissioner to be dedicated to his duties at all times.

He said: “These are political times and I know you are strong politically in Edo South Senatorial District. I expect you to use your political talent and current portfolio to communicate the government’s policies and achievements to the people.

“Let Edo people know of our developmental strides in the past three and a half years, and also why we need a second term.”

According to the governor, the new commission has the ability to face difficult and challenging times.

He said: “I am impressed with the seriousness you (Efe) have taken your new responsibility. The coming months will be demanding and challenging for your office, but I have no doubt that you will be up to the task.”

Naija News reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had fixed September 19 for the Edo Guber election.

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Obaseki will slug it out against Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
