Governor Godwin Obaseki has been elected Vice Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum in a move that reaffirmed the confidence of the APC leadership in his developmental strides in Edo State. This affirmative action is coming on the heels of the galloping endorsements by different
interests groups, the latest being the Road Transport Employers’ Association Of Nigeria, RTEAN.
Briefing journalists in Benin on what he tagged “State of the union and the emerging political events in Edo State,” the state chairman of RTEAN, Comrade Sunday Erhahon, warned that “RTEAN as a formidable body in the state, would not fold its hands and watch enemies of the state throw tantrums at the Governor; a complete gentleman, a lover of peace and an excellent manager of men and resources”.
Besides, the Association condemned what it described as desperate attempts by ‘some disgruntled elements” in the society to malign the governor in pursuance of their selfish agenda.
It noted that all Edo people were witnesses to the monumental achievements of the Governor in the areas of infrastructural development, economic transformation, social re-engineering and human capital development, adding that it was against this backdrop that its members in the state pledged their unalloyed support to Obaseki and his team.
