…throws more light on Simple Agenda
Inhabitants of several communities in Owan East local government area of Edo state could not hide their joy when they heard that the General Hospital, Otuo would be become fully functional before the end of the year.
The APC candidate in the September 19, 2020 Edo State governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu
broke the news at rallies in continuation of his Ward to Ward campaigns in the 11 wards of the local government on Tuesday.
He said, “Comrade Oshiomhole built the General Hospital, Otuo and the former deputy whip of the National Assembly, Hon Pally Iriase got the Federal government to equip it but Governor Obaseki refused to commission it”.
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu who expressed disappointment at the attitude of the outgoing Governor to the health facility promised that, “Once we enter office in November before December ending, we will commission the Hospital”.
At Arokho, he promised to liaise with telecommunications companies to resolve the inability of residents to communicate with the outside world and put an end to the electricity challenges facing Otuo community.
At Uahimi-Emai, Ihievbe and Warrake wards, the APC candidate while asking the residents to vote out the Obaseki government by casting their votes for the APC on September 19, 2020, explained that his manifesto, the Simple Agenda will bring change to governance in the state.
He said that the Governor Obaseki who succeeded in denying the people of Owan East representation at the Edo state Assembly for up to 13-months cannot be asking to be reelected because he does not deserve it.
” Obaseki spent the last four years wasting the time and resources of Edo people while saying he will solve the problems. Obaseki had no Agenda for four years. The Bible says where there is no vision the people perish. He had no idea what he wanted to do in office “.
On the Simple Agenda, the APC candidate said on Security and social welfare, he planned to encourage local vigilante groups to help security agencies in safeguarding lives in rural areas especially farmlands for food security.
He promised that with the Infrastructural development and Urban renewal of his manifesto, his government planned to build more roads as well as electrify the various communities in the area by linking them to the National grid.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu also harped on the Manpower development aspect of his manifesto and assured the people that he will build more schools, equip existing ones and ensure that they have adequate teaching personnel.
He also discussed the commissioning of the Skills Acquisition Centre facilitated by the member representing Owan Federal constituency at the National Assembly, Prof Julius Ihonvbere with a pledge to make skills acquisition an integral part of the State’s education policy.
On the Public-Private-Partnership component of the Simple Agenda, the APC candidate said the government he will head will work hard to support the private sector and the self employed to boost the economy of the state.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu said his will be a government that leads by example as he is a Pastor and a godfearing politician who will not make promises he cannot fulfill once he takes office, adding that this informed his manifesto.
He assured the people that all the items on his manifesto were designed to create job opportunities for the teeming population of youths in the state as well as empowering women with all they need to build a better Edo state.
The tour had covered Arokho, Otuo, Uahumi-Emai, Ihievbe and Warrake wards and featured the National leader of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, State APC chairman, Col David Imuse rtd, and his vice, Emperor Jarret Tenebe, former deputy whip of the National Assembly, Rt Hon Pally Iriase and National Vice-chairman of APC Campaign Council, Hon Patrick Obahiagbon among others.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu was also at the Palace of the Ovie of Otuo, HRH Segun Julius Ojeabuo and the palace of HRH Aminu Ogbedu, Ejorma of Warrake, where he was showered with royal blessings by the traditional rulers, many of who gathered from adjourning communities to hear him speak of his manifesto.#
