Mr Philip Shuaibu, the APC running mate yesterday affirmed that Godwin Obaseki as governor would reconstruct the state to look like Dubai saying that the APC’s candidate’s expertise in turning around the fortunes of many Nigerian companies has been well documented.
Speaking after receiving the endorsement of the leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in Benin City yesterday, Shuaibu who expressed joy over the endorsement of the students, asserted that the PDP intends to further destroy the economy of the state but that the people of the state will vote against them come September 10, 2016. Describing Obaseki as one man who will turn Edo State to Dubai, he said that “Obaseki is a man that when you talk about the story of transformation in our banks, you must mention his name. If you talk about those industries making waves today in Nigeria, the story will not be complete without calling the name of Obaseki. If you want to talk about Nigeria as far as economic issues are concerned, you must mention Obaseki. “Everybody wants to tap from his experience; it is a gift from God that at this time APC decided that it is time to look for a technocrat to head the government here. It became possible to pay salaries in Edo State because we have a team working tirelessly to make things work in Edo state. PDP has record of waste; they have no vision for the state and Edo people will further punish them next week Saturday” he stated.
