Edo 2024: Edo LP Aspirant Promises Improve Infrastructures


Ahead of the February 23 Labour Party primary election in Edo state, one of the governorship aspirants, Dr. Blessing Akele has promised to improve on infrastructural amenities if elected as the party’s flag bearer.

Dr Akele pointed out that if she fails to pick the party’s ticket, she would not hesitate to work for the candidate the process produces noting that the ambition is not about her personal gains but for the good of the party and Edo people.

If chosen, Dr. Akele said she will focus on health, education, agriculture, tackle insecurity and focus on renewable energy which will enhance productivity in Edo state.

She also promised to ensure the upgrade of living standards of citizens of Edo state, pointing out that the people should be able to benefit from the resource of the state.

The LP governorship aspirant stressed the need to invest in the public sector to make living better for ordinary citizens. She decried the hardship that the people of Edo State are passing through at the hands of the APC government.

” It’s unbelievable, the rate of hardship of the people is getting worse day by day. We are talking about hunger. The markets and streets are empty and there is increase in the price of fuel per litre.

” We have different aspirants and I am among those that are aspiring for the office of governor in Edo state. About eight contestants were screened for the primaries. I was screened and cleared to partake in the primaries on Friday.

” The reason why I am running for the election is that everyday the situation is getting worse in Edo state. We need to manage the State for the benefit of the people.

” When you look at the section of our Constitution you will see that our present governments have not been able to give the dividends of democracy to the ordinary people.

” I decided to run the race to make the citizens have good governance. That means spending the state’s wealth for the benefit of the people. During the campaign I told the people about my programmes.

” The programmes are full of a list of priorities. If I become the governor of Edo state, one of the first thing to do is the electrification of Edo state, because without electricity we cannot talk about development.

” So, industrialization is needed because we need to create industries and factories to enable the citizens to work,” She finished.
