The eighteen local government area chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State yesterday, November 10, 2023, took a swipe on the seven years of the administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki describing it as years of “waste, woes and non-performance.”

Addressing a press conference, Hon. Oscar Aghedo, Chairman of all Chairmen, said: “having carefully listened to the lamentations of our people and based on what we have seen on ground it is obvious that there’s no development activities in the 18 local government areas of the state.”


Going further, Aghedo, who is the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ovia North East Local Government Area, stressed that: “It is visible to the blind and audible to the deaf; that seven years down the lane it can conveniently be said and discussed that Edo State is fast becoming a failed State – seven years of torture; seven years of hardship; seven years of deceit; seven years of underdevelopment; seven years of Infrastructural decadence; seven years of insecurity; seven years of failed promises; seven years of financial recklessness and seven years of indebtedness.

“Nothing meaningful has been achieved by the Jamboree in these past seven years, rather a continuous waste of tax payer’s money.


“The past seven years, the government is busy painting the streetlights provided by Adams Aliu Oshiomhole. The painting of the Civil Service Secretariat, the painting of the Observer office and the declaration that all roads in Benin are now federal roads.

“As we march towards the election of September 21st, 2024 on who succeeds the present administration; we must quickly ask ourselves – where is the 200,000 jobs; the Gelegele Seaport; the billions of naira spent on Edo Jobs; the over N300 billion indebtedness and the industrial park that billions have been spent on without anything to show for and many more.

“Edo people are wiser now and it is our common prayer that affliction should and will not arise the second time. The Era of SSA’s and other emergency empowerment is back again. We call on all well-meaning Edo people to reject this present deceit and let us return to the glorious days of our darling state where life was beautiful and enjoyable.


“Not this present times where no life is safe in the state and the government rather than adhere to the first schedule of the Nigeria constitution where it was clearly stated that the government must protect lives and properties but in our dear state it has become the opposite.

“Our youths have all left the city for fear of the unknown. Let us as citizens of Edo State come together and bring about a government of development and a political party that have shown to us in the past that Edo State must move forward and that party is APC.”
