Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has restated his commitment to serve the people of the state, stressing that the time for sharing public funds to “a few greedy politicians” in the state was over.
The governor, according to a statement on Tuesday, said this when he received Muslim faithful who were at the Government House, Benin, to celebrate the end of the Ramadan fast with him.
He said he would not be distracted from fulfilling his promises to the people, no matter the antics of detractors.
Obaseki said, “Only God gives power. What is going on in Edo State is the handiwork of detractors who want to frustrate the administration so we can fail in delivering the dividends of democracy to the people. But that will never happen.”
Insisting that he would not bow to pressure to share the people’s money to “a few greedy persons,” the governor added, “We will continue to do our best in paying our workers and pensioners and will continue to develop the state as the time for sharing money is over.
“The resources of the state are meant for the people of the state.”
