Edo can’t go back to loot­ing era — Shuaibu

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Us­man A. Bello, Benin

Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Philip Shuaibu, the run­ning mate of the gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date of the All Pro­gres­sives Con­gress (APC) in Edo State, God­win Obaseki, has said that the era of loot­ing of pub­lic trea­sury by un­pa­tri­otic politicians is gone.

Speak­ing at his coun­try home in Jattu, Et­sako West Lo­cal Govern­ment Area of Edo State, week­end, Shuibu said that the warm re­cep­tion ac­corded the APC dur­ing its cam­paigns showed that the party re­mained the party to beat come Septem­ber 10.

“The is­sue be­fore the Edo peo­ple in this elec­tion is whether to go back to PDP era, when it was op­er­a­tions share the money, no de­vel­op­ment and no in­fra­struc­ture.

“That was a time when fake in­dus­tries were set up to siphon pub­lic money for per­sonal use. The peo­ple have the op­tion to con­tinue with the APC govern­ment that has de­cided to de­velop the state through road in­fra­struc­ture, mak­ing ero­sion a his­tory, putting ed­u­ca­tion back to where it be­longed and mak­ing sure that an Edo child has a good school to learn for bet­ter fu­ture,” he said.

He said that the gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date of the PDP, Pas­tor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, was bat­tling to get what to show­case to the peo­ple dur­ing his cam­paigns, be­cause Edo was mis­gov­erned by the PDP be­fore Gover­nor Adams Osh­iom­hole came to the res­cue of the state.
