Edo 2020: PDP promises to address erosion problem in Ekpoma
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo on Friday said it would complete the ongoing work in Ekpoma to address the perennial erosion problem.
Gov. Godwin Obaseki, the PDP candidate for the Sept 19 governorship election in the state, gave the assurance at the palace of Anthony Abumere II, the Onojie of Ekpoma when he took his ward to ward campaign tour to the locality to solicit prayers and support.
The governor said that he would also be committed to addressing the challenges of security and electricity as they were of concern to the government.
“As such, the Ekpoma community should wear the look of a university community, a citadel of learning.
“We are, therefore, committed to ensuring that Ekpoma takes its pride of place in the world. We are committed to the development of the university and will continue to.
“That is why we are soliciting your support and prayers to return to government house to complete the work we started, which is transforming the state,” Obaseki said.
He noted that the purpose of politics and governance was to provide service to the people, hence, state resources should be geared towards service to the people.
