The Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, on Sunday noted that All Progressives Congress has been restless since the Presidency sent a delegate to inspect one of his projects in the state.
The Edo State Governor further stated that the opposition party is having a nightmare being confronted with facts about the role he played in the establishment of the modular refinery in Ologbo Local Government Area of the State.
He stated this through his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie on Sunday, adding that the refinery was getting closer to being completed.
“After last week’s visit of a Federal Government delegation to the Edo Modular Refinery in Ologbo, the APC is now clearly confused as their campaign seems to have been deflated by the stellar performance of Governor Obaseki and the near-total acceptance Obaseki enjoys from Edo people,” he said.
Obaseki revealed that the truth about his government’s performance will continue to stand in the way of the propaganda of APC.
The PDP Governorship candidate added that the Presidency sent emissaries to Ologbo in Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area of the state last week, to inspect the refinery project.
According to him, the government was satisfied with what they saw on the ground and “showered encomiums on Governor Obaseki for the landmark achievement.”
He explained that during the visit, the seed investment of N700 million which the Obaseki administration made to kick-off this project was eloquently highlighted.
“Understandably, this event gave the opposition sleepless nights and this feeble lie is the response they have decided to deploy in an attempt to pacify their supporters who have been questioning their jaundiced criticisms of Governor Obaseki and transferring their allegiance in large numbers to the ‘wake and see governor,” he said.
Obaseki stated this while reacting to an earlier statement by the APC Media Campaign Council Chairman in Edo State, John Mayaki, who had told Governor Obaseki not to “take glory” for the refinery project.
