We ’ll ensure victory for APC . Royal
father tells Oshiomhole

Enogie of Oghobase a traditional Ruler in Edo South, has pledged support for Governor Adams Oshiomhole and ensure victory for his party in the coming elections based on the numerous developmental
strides in the state.

His Royal Highness, Idu Akenzua stated this
yesterday when Edo State Governor paid
him a visit in his palace.
He said, “We are following your works
religiously. We can say without fear of
contradiction that you have not only
demystified governance, you have brought
human face to bear on governance.

Governance used to be inaccessible, but
since you came on board, in terms of
governance, in terms of infrastructural
developments, building of schools,
healthcare centers, hospital, the blind can
now see, the deaf can now hear and the
lame can now walk.

“I am assuring you of my support and the
support of my kingdom. We are solidly
behind you. You should not relent with
what you are doing. We will ensure that we
put in the best we can, we will also ensure
that you get victory at the end of the day.

Responding, Governor Oshiomhole thanked
the Royal Highness for the kind words he
expressed about his administration and
commended him for the peace in his

Oshiomhole said, “I am appreciative of your
support for the government and your
prayers. I am happy that you already have
acknowledged some of the things we have
done in some parts of the state and you
have drawn my attention to the peculiar
issues in your domain.
Issue of schools is
very important because people in rural
areas will not be able to produce engineers
and doctors and achieve upward mobility
for their children if there are no schools.

“That is why Edo State Government devotes
a lot of resources to building schools so that
the child can have access to quality primary
and secondary schools. In order for the
parents not to have any excuse for not
sending their children to school we have
also abolished school fees and all form of
charges. Our schools are completely free
and in area where school children are able
to board the comrade bus, they do so free
of charge, whether they are going to or
returning from school once they wear their
school uniform.”

Addressing a group of party faithful later,
Oshiomhole said that the APC is committed
and connected to the wellbeing of the

He said, “The problem we have today is that
the country is grounded. No matter what
the State Government does, if the Federal
Government does not do its part, the full
benefits cannot be felt. After 16 years of
PDP rule and all the money they spent on
power have all gone into individual pockets
and Nigeria is in the dark. There is no way
we can create prosperity without electricity.

“There is no way we can bring private
industries here without electricity. Nigeria
cannot compete with the rest of the world
without electricity and today we are
importing everything because the
environment for production has been
destroyed and that is why when APC talk of
change, we are saying practically change
from a government that is spending money
without result to the one that will spend
little resources and get results.”

He urged the people not to be distracted by
politicians who drag religion into politics as
all the problems confronting Nigeria is not
restricted to a particular religious group.

He said, “When they bring fixed charges for
light not provided, it is not meant for either
Christians or Muslims. When a country is
good, nobody cares whether you are a
Muslim or a Christian. What matters is who
has the courage to work? No one should be
deceived; Nigerians in Edo are brothers and
sisters. Some people are now dropping
money for some bad pastors to be
preaching about religion and politics. This
matter has no business with religion. If
Nigeria is good, it is not a question of

“When a government knows he has no
support, he tries to drag religion into
politics. A Nigerian is a Nigerian whether
you are Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa because
hunger has no tribe. In Nigeria today we
have only two tribes; the tribe of the
extremely poor who work very hard but
have nothing to show for it and the tribe of
the extremely rich who do little or nothing
but are ostentatiously rich. We must unite
to change Nigeria”, he said.
