During a visit to the Labour Party (LP) secretariat in Igarra, Akoko-Edo Local Government, on Thursday, I, Ogbemudia Bassey Osagie, engaged in a fruitful discussion with the party’s executive members regarding my candidacy for the 2024 governorship election. The meeting provided an opportunity to articulate my vision for the state and underscore the importance of experience and popularity in choosing a candidate.
I firmly believe that Edo State deserves a leader with a proven track record in politics and a deep understanding of the needs of our people. It was with this conviction that I emphasized the need for a candidate with political experience and popularity during my interaction with party faithful. I urged our esteemed members not to support newcomers like Olumide or Dorry, stressing the significance of having a candidate who can navigate the complexities of governance effectively.
My administration, if elected, will prioritize addressing infrastructure deficiencies and promoting substantial investment and development in Akoko-Edo. We must focus on building a foundation for growth that benefits every citizen and community within the state.
I shared my frustration over past attempts to govern Edo State, citing challenges posed by political godfathers and adversaries hindering progress. My commitment to the people remains unwavering, and I am determined to overcome these obstacles with the support of the LP and the people of Edo.
I appeal for your support to secure the party’s candidacy, recognizing the pivotal role an experienced and well-known candidate plays in challenging the dominance of other political parties, particularly the APC and the PDP. Together, we can bring about positive change and usher in an era of prosperity for Edo State.
I appreciate the opportunity to engage with the party’s executive members and look forward to the continued support of the LP and the people of Edo State in the journey towards a better future.
