Edo State Governor-Elect, Obaseki Reveals What He Will Do To PDP

Godwin Obaseki, governor-elect of Edo state, says he will not appoint any member of the opposition party into his government.

Speaking with reporters in Benin, capital of the state, on Saturday, Obaseki said it is obvious that he has to hit the ground running.

He explained that since the legislative chamber would be going on recess a month after he takes over the leadership of the state, his first assignment would be the presentation of budget to the house of assembly.

“I will not be able to accept anybody from the opposition as a commissioner in my cabinet,” he said.

“My first assignment is to put together a team and get appropriation for next year because we have to hit the ground running.”

He said his administration would continue with the policy of the outgoing government, and would create jobs and empower youths.

“The focus will not change in terms of infrastructure and education. The added focus will be on job creation and empowerment,” he said.

“We will continue to build roads and refurbish schools. What is important is how to get people to work.”obaseki

      We dont have a credible electoral system anymore in Nigeria. The entire system is failing and all the hard work put up by the last administration and previous ones even obasanjo is gradually becoming a waste. I pitty this country. If only Nigerians know where they are heading they would know the kind of mistake they made and are still making.
