The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has urged voters in Esan South East Local Government Area of the state to come out enmasse to vote for candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to ensure sustained growth and development in the local council.
Obaseki gave the charge while speaking to party faithful at Ubiaja, Esan South-East LGA to canvass votes for the party’s candidates ahead of the September 2, 2023 local council election.
The governor, who expressed confidence that the party will emerge victorious at the polls, said his government will sustain efforts to ensure the delivery of the dividends of democracy to the people of Edo State.
He said, “Vote PDP for development and growth. I have a chairman I can work with; it is development and growth all the way. I will build more roads, ensure the security of the people and bring development to all the sectors in Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo State.
“Vote for Louis Imhandegbelo as Chairman and I will work with him to bring more development to the people. I will collaborate to ensure the people get the dividend of democracy.”
On his part, the party’s chairmanship candidate, Louis Imhandegbelo, noted, “When I become chairman, I will ensure more communities are connected to electricity. The people will not suffer from lack of potable water and good roads. We will empower farmers in the area.”
A leader in the council area, Akhere Ogbesia, thanked the governor for his faith in the people of Esan South East to deliver, assuring him of victory at the local government election.
Also speaking, Edo PDP Chairman, Anthony Aziegbemi, stated, “The local government is the heartbeat of Edo PDP and a local government that never fails in delivering votes for PDP in any election. The party is united here and there is no quarrel or disagreement within the party.”
