Why i should be Edo state next Governor- Odubu

As the Edo state governorship election draws near, the state Deputy Governor, Dr. Pius Odubu, has advised his opponents in the race to tell the people what they have to offer rather than casting aspersions on others aspirants.

Odubu gave the advise on Wednesday April 27 at the formal declaration of his intention to contest in the governorship race.

He said he was in the race for what he could give, unlike his opponents who are in for what they could get, adding that he is the best person for the job. 

“Yes, I have been around the political arena for some a while, serving the people in different capacities viz the legislative and executive arms of government.  

“I dare say that anybody that would say because of this, should not be voted for, belongs belongs to the genre or class of politicians who believe in the politics of ‘chop-I-chop’‎. I am in politics to serve the people.  

“While these people are interested in what they can get, I am interested in what I can give. Therein lies the difference. There is no better way to be prepared for governance than by practical experience garnered over the years. Neither a degree in government, nor a degree in political science can take the place of experience. 

“I urge these faceless fellows to desist from their camping of calumny. In this contest, I have no enemies but opponents. I have advised my supporters to be temperate with their language and civil in their conduct. 

“For me, nothing in this world is worth the blood of a fowl, not to talk of that of a human being. I leave these enemies of progress to the all-knowing God,” he said. 

The APC governorship aspirant who promised to uphold the provision of the constitution and manifesto of his party, also pledged to build on the legacies of Governor Oshiomhole.

“The Oshiomhole administration has set the template for infrastructural development in Edo state. This will be continued and sustained.  

“Given the high level to which Comrade Adams Oshiomhole taken Edo state, going forward, the state needs a governor that is in the game ready. One that will hit the ground running. I believe I am that person by the grace of God,” he said.
