Market women on the Second East Circular area of Benin City have pledged to support the governorship standard bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Godwin Obaseki for the September 10, 2016 governorship election in Edo State, saying he has their full support.
The residents who came out in large numbers in Benin City, on Wednesday, to receive Governor Adams Oshiomhole who was on inspection of the on-going dual-carriage Second East Circular Road, accompanied by the candidate of the party, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, and four of the aspirants in the primaries of the party: Professor Ebegue Amadasun, Hon Emmanuel Arigbe-Osula, Maj.-Gen Charles Airiavbere (rtd) and Comrade Peter Esele showered praises and prayers on Governor Oshiomhole for reconstructing their road which had been abandoned for years while they promised to reciprocate the gesture by casting their votes for Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
One of the women, Mrs. Doris Edionsere, while expressing her gratitude to the governor said: “On the day the evil one will plant evil seed outside, God will bring you out. You will go higher and higher. God will bless your family. Do you know what daddy? I used to come down at the junction, and I will start trekking, but now, I will come down in front of my store and just enter my store. I am enjoying it. You are a wonderful man. Indeed, you are a great governor. God will bless you. We will support your candidate, he has our full support. We know that you won’t give us a bad product, so we will support him fully as we supported you.”
