The APC gubernatorial candidate in Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has reiterated that he will not be a puppet to any godfather if elected governor of Edo State in the Saturday’s election.
Obaseki made the statement during an interview on Television Continental on Wednesday.
I will not be a puppet to any godfather or godmother if I become governor of Edo State.
He added that, if he needed to be a puppet to anybody, he would rather be a puppet to the good people of Edo State, whose general mandate he was seeking to become their governor.
Obaseki said he was also set to make a positive difference in governance, if elected, and promised to deliver more dividends of democracy to the people of the state.
Commenting on how his government would generate at least 200,000 jobs for youths within his first four years in office, Obaseki said he hoped to achieve this through agricultural reforms and by also creating the necessary enabling environment for investors to come and do business in Edo State.
