The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, today took its campaign train to Ikpoba Okha and Egor Local Government Areas where large crowd of supporters welcomed them, to further seek the support of the people they have enjoyed over the years.
The state party chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, while speaking on the state of economy of Edo State, pointed out how the present government of Mr Godwin Obaseki is towing the line of the Adams Oshiomhole-led government, which plunged the state into indebtedness.
Senator Matthew Urhoghide stressed on the fact that the Buhari-led government have not only failed Nigerians but that the APC Edo State government has failed the people woefully, citing how the prices of goods and services have greatly increased over the past three years, and how under this government more youths have become unemployed than any other government in the history of Nigeria.
He also noted that true representation is about the people first and that he would not relent until he has done his very best for every community. He highlighted some of his achievements in Edo South and promised to do more when re-elected. Senator Urhoghide’s presence is felt in over 85% of the 77 wards that make up Edo South Senatorial district. A re-elected Senator Urhoghide will give Edo south a ranking senator and an opportunity to have a principal office in the senate.
