Obaseki Turning Edo Into Japan Of Nigeria
Benin City - I strongly believe that Edo people are in for the best time ever in the history of the creation of one of the most homogenous states in the country. From all indications, the achievements of Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia, Professor Ambrose Folorunso Alli and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole may jolly well be a child’s play if Mr. Godwin Obaseki executes all the plans and good intentions he has for the state in the next eight years.
The latest of such plans came out clearly over the weekend when the Governor disclosed in Abuja that his government would partner with the government of Japan in the areas of manufacturing, transportation, and vocational training for the youths as part of moves to make the state a manufacturing hub in the county.
The governor held that the synergy would also be in the area of technological training which was a major aspect of his strategic plan to empower the people of the state, affirming that his government would revamp the fruit processing company in Ehor, the fertilizer company in Auchi this first quarter of the year and at the same time, focus on the area of solid minerals.
The governor’s meeting with the Japanese is clearly in continuation of his efforts at wooing investors to the state. While in Abuja, he held talks with the First Secretary Economic-Development co- operation of the Embassy of Japan, Gaku Sato at the Abuja Liaison office of Edo state. He used to occasion to re-state his plans to revive technical colleges in Edo State to help in the vocational training of the youths.
