Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, said he has begun a review of the campaign promises made to the citizens of the state before his election on September 26.
Obaseki explained that he had started taking stock both at the Government House and the different ministries in the state to ascertain the amount of resources available to meet the promises.
The governor spoke during a meeting with the state leadership and executive members of the All Progressives Congress in Benin on Friday.
He said, “I want to use this opportunity to inform you that, since we took over government last week, what we are trying to do is stock-taking to understand how things are in the Government House, to understand what is going on in each ministry, to review the promises we made during our election and to see whether the resources we have is enough to meet those promises.
“We are doing ground work and over the next three weeks, we will conclude what we are doing and then invite a much larger house.”
Obaseki also expressed gratitude to the leadership of the party at the state and local government levels for their support, which he said was instrumental to his victory in the election.
“This meeting is just to say thank you to the state executive and the local government executives. We will in due course involve everybody and hold another occasion to thank the leaders of the party properly for the marvelous support most of you gave during the last election,” he added.
Also speaking, his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, urged members of the APC to consolidate the bond holding the party together.
He said, “I am proud of what he (Obaseki) has done so far. I know the governor is determined. He is committed and with your support, he will deliver on all the promises he made to our people.”
