Edo to generate sufficient power by 2018, says aspirant



A governorship aspirant on platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has disclosed that if given the chance, he would ensure that the state enjoys stable electricity by 2018.

Obaseki, who is also state chairman of the Economic and Strategic team, stated this yesterday at a seminar organised by Edo Accord Initiative tagged: “Edo United: Edo State in the Eye of Present Economic Downturn/The Future.”

The aspirant explained that with the Azura power generating project and other power projects, which his team has wooed to the state, the issues of power outage would soon be a thing of the past.

He noted that the only way to achieve the dream of stable power supply in the state is to support a candidate with the vision of Governor Adams Oshiomhole in developing the state.

While urging delegates to vote for him, he said, “If you have taken note of what is happening in the state, before Adams Oshiomhole, there was nothing on ground. They said Edo was a poor and civil service state and so they couldn’t build roads, schools or factories. But in the last seven years, the picture has changed.”
