Edo Polls: PDP guber candidate meets with artisans

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has met with members of the Artisans’ Union in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
Speaking with them at the Adesuwa Road branch, the PDP governorship standard bearer promised to create an enabling environment in which they can be gainfully employed regularly.
He decried the situation whereby the present APC administration in the past eight years has not been able to create sustainable jobs or an atmosphere for the artisans to be profitably engaged.
He also drew their attention to what he termed the wastefulness of the state government through the over-inflation of contracts for road projects.
The members through their spokespersons pledged their support for the PDP governorship candidate’s ambition. They requested to be carried along when eventually he is elected.
One of their leaders, Raymond Akaji, requested that the governorship candidate provide them agricultural loans o enable many of them, particularly the elderly ones, retire to farming.
