Build up of Edo Governorship Election
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Edo state, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has accused Governor Adams Oshiomhole of using 65% of the state’s capital vote to develop his village.
According to the PDP guber candidate, Oshiomhole’s village alone has about 39 tarred roads.
Ize-Iyamu also added that the PDP will chase the All Progressives Congress (APC) out of power in Edo state.
Speaking to his supporters at a rally in Ukpenu Community in Esan West Local Government Area, he said “This is a local government that produced Governor Ambrose Alli who developed all parts of Bendel State and did not say that because he hailed from Esan West, he would not develop Benin City or Etsako.
“It is painful that a governor would come and choose to neglect a place where Alli hailed from. Ukpenu road used to be a strategic road that led to the federal capital, the state capital, and Edo North. It’s regrettable that Governor Oshiomhole says it is a federal road.”
