The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the forthcoming September 10 election in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has said that outgoing governor Adams Oshiomhole, is self-centered in administering the state’s resources.
The PDP flag bearer urged voters to reject the APC for the clannish and discriminatory actions of the outgoing government.
Accusing the APC with a poor record for keeping faith with the people, Ize-Iyamu noted that the Adams Oshiomhole administration had spent 65% of its capital vote in his village, Iyanmoh, a village he claimed currently has 39 tarred roads with some local governments begging for one.
He made this known over the weekend during a campaign rally in Ukpenu Community in Esan West Local Government Area, the birthplace of the former governor of the old Bendel State, the late Professor Ambrose Alli.
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, while addressed a mammoth crowd of the elderly, women and enthusiastic youths in the community which came from Ward 7 of the local government area, said that the present APC led administration headed by governor Adams Oshiomhole almost brought the state owned university to a halt, adding that roads which hitherto were motorable in the state are now inaccessible.
He said: “This is a local government that produced Governor Ambrose Alli who developed all parts of Bendel State and did not say that because he hailed from Esan West he would not develop Benin City or Etsako.
“It is painful that a governor would come and choose to neglect a place where Alli hailed from. Ukpenu road used to be a strategic road that led to the federal capital, the state capital, and Edo North. It’s regrettable that Governor Oshiomhole says it is a federal road.”
