GOVERNOR GODWIN OBASEKI FAILED MANY POLITICAL PUNDITS
BY COMRADE AMIENYE DAVID OMOROGIE
I have always stood for what is right, even if I am standing alone. In tandem with the principles of the Late Gani F. of blessed memory.
When the name “Mr. Godwin Obaseki” first rented the political space in the days of Governor Adams Oshoimhole as the head of the state economic team and later the anointed candidate of the APC in 2016 Governorship election, many political pundits predicted a doom for the state and envisaged a ” Master and stooge government”. My humble self wasn’t left out in this discuss. We feared that an inexperienced hand have been gifted governance to suit the desire of a microscopic political cabal.
The man Godwin Obaseki settled down quietly, selected his team and started the fundamental work. Engaged a lot of stakeholders in the various Sectors of the Economy. Partnered with several organisations across the globe and of course signed a lot of Memorandum of understanding (M.O.U).
Today, the result of his unique style of leadership are visible to the blind and audible to the deaf in almost all the sectors (Specific Achievements to be captured in my next piece). The internally generated revenue in the state is in all time high. Truly speaking, the man knows his onions. He has proven to be an authority when it comes to public administration.
Not a single corruption case have been levelled against him. In fact the ambiance around his office tells you “It is a no go area”. He is not a sentimental leader, he has worked in Edo North, Edo Central and Edo South Senatorial district.
However, the task ahead is still enormous. The next phase of his administration should focus squarely on massive industrialization and other critical sectors that requires more attention. We are not singing his praises today because we need anything from him, but because he has raised a standard in Edo State that will stand for a long time in the annals of Edo states.
ONE GOOD TERM DESERVES ANOTHER. Irrespective of different political affiliations, I am very sure that the entire progressives in Edo State will throw their full wieght behind “THE WAKE AND SEE GOVERNOR”
