Mr Awala who was at the scene of the Comrade Governor’s inspection of the ongoing road construction at Upper Siluko road, in Benin City yesterday said, “This is not about PDP or APC, I am a PDP man and am congratulating you today because you have put smiles on the faces of the people of Edo who never thought of seeing smiles. You see those houses that were submerged; many of the owners are   coming back.
“It is good to be good. The good you are doing now, you will enjoy it. You are not doing this good for yourself, you are doing it for the children yet unborn.
