I’ll Produce 100 Millionaires In Four Years In Edo – Obaseki

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said he will produce 100 millionaires in the state in four years, if elected as governor.

Obaseki, who spoke on Monday at an interactive session with a group, Grassroots Youth Initiative, in Ikpoba Okha area of the state, explained that with the presence of natural resources, the residents had no reason to be poor.

He said, “God has blessed us in Edo. No state is like Edo. We do not have any reason to be poor; the only reason why we are poor is because of bad leadership. With good leadership, the sky is our limit.

“So, the first thing I am going to emphasise in employment is to register the unemployed because we have employed a lot of people in the last eight years.

“We are inaugurating our programme on agriculture called the anchor programme. Edo has been selected for oil palm, rubber, cassava, maize, livestock, poultry and fishery. Government is going to support all you want to do.”

He, however, noted that the process of wealth creation required the cooperation of all residents.

“Alone, I cannot do it; I need all of you to support the project to make it work, so that by the time we come here, almost everybody will be gainfully and skilfully employed.

“We have done a research in government. I do not want to be a governor where people fight to be senior special assistants before they can buy cars.

“I want to be a governor that will produce 100 millionaires after four years. That is my goal, so that at the end my tenure, the people will truly lead because they will be empowered.”
