JUST IN: Obaseki Outlines Plans For Second Term As He Takes

The Governor of Edo State Godwin Obaseki has outlined the plans of his administration for his second term in office as he takes the oath of office.

Obaseki, while taking his oath of office on Thursday, revealed that his administration was going to rapidly develop critical energy, road infrastructure amongst other things to solidify the status of Edo state as the choice of investment destination in the country.

He also promised to preserve the environmental and public utilities of the state.

“We will also rapidly develop our critical energy, housing, digital and road Infrastructure, which provides a framework to drive inclusive growth as well as build the economy and drive industrialization, trade and investment, to solidify our state’s status as the choice investment destination in the country.

“We will preserve the environment and public utilities, to make our state more functional and adapt to the challenges of climate change and rural-urban migration. Our major drive will be the clean and green Edo initiative and sustaining our campaign to plant trees and restore the forest,” He said.

Present at the swearing-in ceremony that took place at the Tennis Court of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin was the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Uche Secondus, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal, Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, and the Bayelsa State Governor Duoye Diri.

It will be recalled that Obaseki, who was elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2016, decamped to PDP after he was disqualified from the primaries of APC.

Obaseki, who got PDP's ticket to contest at the governorship election after joining the party, defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu APC's candidate to emerge victorious at the Edo State governorship election that held on September 19.

AllNews had, on Wednesday, reported that Obaseki dissolved his cabinet ahead of the inauguration that held on Thursday.
