A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s lawmaker has described September 10 as a day of liberation for the Edo People, from the “shackles of bad governance and underdevelopment.”

The lawmaker representing Ovia Federal Constituency, Omosede Igbinedion, spoke yesterday at a rally in Odighi, in Ovia North East Local Council area.

She urged the people to liberate themselves by voting for the party’s candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

She said a vote for Ize-Iyamu would bring countless blessings to the state and its people, especially in terms of equal development.

Igbinedion explained that the election date is critical, because voters across the state are now more sensitive and recognise that only a PDP government would respect their rights and the country’s constitution.

She said: “The day would be a day of liberation for the people of Edo State. The people have had enough of the outgoing government of Adams Oshiomhole and they are going to show it on that day.”

The lawmaker condemned the attack on her convoy recently when she went to attend the launch of the Integrated Produce City at Ugbokun village, near Okada.

She accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of being behind the attack, which infringed on her rights in a project facilitated by a private firm.

“It shows the oppressive government that we have in the state today. It is unheard of and completely unethical. I consider it as unfortunate that Oshiomhole cannot distinguish between the APC and being governor of the state.”

The lawmaker said that she has right to attend functions organised in her constituency, as their elected representative in the National Assembly.

She added: “In a truly democratic environment, the governor ought to realise that everyone should be allowed freedom of movement and the inalienable right to prosper.”
