Edo, Delta to set up Bendel Commission to foster mutual cooperation on security, economy, others – Nigerian Observer
BENIN CITY – The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said the government is commencing discussions with the Delta State Government to establish a Bendel Commission to foster mutual cooperation and collaboration in economic, security, cultural and environmental matters between the two states.
Obaseki disclosed this during a live broadcast to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Edo State.
According to him, “Our mission to Make Edo Great Again (MEGA) will only be a pipe dream without rethinking the methods that got us to this point and recalibrating existing systems to address our peculiar challenges, in the quest to compete and dominate in a fast-changing world. To achieve our mission of MEGA comprehensively, we must involve our kit and kin in Delta State.
“We are therefore commencing discussions to establish a Bendel Commission to foster mutual cooperation and collaboration in economic, security, cultural and environmental matters between Edo and Delta States,” he noted.
Reassuring the government’s sustained efforts to ensure economic prosperity for all Edo people, Obaseki further stated: “We are repositioning our civil and public service to provide world-class service to Edo people at home and abroad. We have continued to invest in our youth through various programs spearheaded by the Edo Skills Development Agency (EdoJobs), which has given birth to numerous enterprises in the Edo Production Centres, Edo Tech Hub and Edo Creative Hub.
“The next few decades will witness Edo State becoming the Technology Hub in Nigeria as we create more partnerships to train and develop thousands of young people into competent software developers and Tech solutions providers.”
