The Onojie of Ujiogba, His Royal Highness (HRH), Solomon Izuware, on Friday, assured the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, that his subjects are strongly in support of the governor and would work for his re-election.
Izuware gave the assurance in his palace in Ujiogba, Esan West Local Government Area of the state, and offered royal blessings for the reelection of the governor and his deputy, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu.
The traditional ruler, who listed the various developmental projects executed by the Obaseki-led administration across the state as proof of his sterling performance in office, assured the governor that Ujiogba people would show their appreciation with their votes on September 19, 2020.
According to him, “I must tell you that I have sampled the opinion of my people and 99.9 percent of them are strongly behind you. We don’t say things we can’t do.
“Ujiogba Community is for you. The people have said it and they have decided to give you their support. I pray for you today that you would be victorious in the forthcoming election.”
The governor said he was happy that the traditional ruler has sampled the opinions of his people ahead of the gubernatorial election.
“As a government, we will continue to do things that our people will benefit from. I have awarded the Ujiogba Road reconstruction. Work will commence during the dry season.
“I understand we don’t have a police station in this community. I am making a commitment that we will build one so that the police don’t have any excuse for not policing your community. I am glad that you have a very well-organised vigilante group which we will continue to support through the community policing framework.”
