Youths in Ibillo Town, Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of Edo State have assured the Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, of their unalloyed support, promising to return the Governor with a wide margin in the September 19 governorship election in the state.

A cross section of the youths who spoke when the governor and his campaign trail stormed Ibillo Ward 4 in the council, on Tuesday, said they are totally in support of the governor who has brought development to the area.

Meanwhile, Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Hon. Frank Okiye, has declared that no member of the State House of Assembly endorsed the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the September 19, 2020 Governorship election in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Okiye said this during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign rally for the September 19, 2020 Governorship election at Ward 3 in the council area.

He accused dissident members-elect, whose seats have been declared vacant, of impersonating the leadership of the legislative arm, which was proclaimed by the state governor on June 17,2019.

A resident in Ibillo, Daniel Ojo, said Obaseki has done well, noting, “We can’t afford not to give him our support. This is the first time Akoko-Edo is enjoying massive infrastructural development.”

He added, “The entire Ward 4 is for Governor Obaseki. We are not going to let him down. We need to show him that he deserves his eight years as the governor of our great state.”

“Obaseki’s good work will definitely speak for him. The people are not blind,” he asserted
Another resident, Mrs Bidemi Ogunubi, said Governor Obaseki is a great man, adding that pensioners in the local council are proud of him.

“I retired and got my pension benefits within one month of my retirement. My household and I are for the governor.”

On his part, the House Leader, Hon. Nosayaba Okunbor, who represented the Speaker at the rally, said the Edo State Assembly is intact.

He, however, expressed regret for Mr. Emmanuel Agbaje (APC Akoko-Edo II Constituency) who recently followed the path of perfidy by accepting bribe to do the bidding of a political godfather in the state.
