We Will Continue To Pursue Peace, Even In Face Of Provocation – Obaseki


The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, says his administration remains committed to ensuring peace in the state despite the politically charged atmosphere.

He stated this on Tuesday when he visited the Egiegbai II of Ekperi Kingdom, His Royal Highness Deke Kanoba, in Etsako Central Local Government Area of the state.

Governor Obaseki was at the traditional ruler’s palace to seek the monarch’s prayers and support ahead of the September 19, 2020 governorship election.

“I will continue to do everything within my powers, even in the face of provocation from the opposition, to ensure that our dear state is peaceful.

“No business can thrive in a state where there is no peace. As a government, we are determined to explore all means possible to grow our economy,” he told his host.

The governor added, “I understand that there is also no place or business that can boom without constant electricity. We need electricity for our businesses such as fish farm which is a major source of income for the people of Ekperi.

According to Governor Obaseki, the state government is very concerned about providing a constant electricity supply to the people.

He was accompanied to the palace by the state deputy governor, Philip Shaibu, and some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
