Secondus To Obaseki : Ensure All-Inclusive Government For Progress Of Edo State

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has advised the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, to forget the past and demonstrate the spirit of democracy by bringing everyone on board in the development of the state.

Secondus gave the advice on Monday, October 5, at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, when Obaseki paid a thank-you visit to the members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

He advised Obaseki to work with the three arms of government; especially those who offended him in the course of the election.

“My advice for you is that the election is over, the expectations are very high. You must now show the experience you came with from the private sector.

“In the political world, it is your ability to lead everyone together especially in this your last tenure.

“It is important to make sure that there are three arms of government – the executive which you head, even though you are the overall boss, make sure that the legislative arm, those who have offended you, who ran helter-skelter, bring them back, they are your children.

“You are the father of Edo, bring them on board, and work with all of them because that will be your legacy.

“It is not money or anything else but your ability to bring everybody on board to work with you and I am quite sure that Edo people are ready even those from the other party, who are willing to come, let them come,” Secondus said.

He said that Obaseki’s victory was a confirmation of what God could do when men arrogate His power to themselves, urging him to continue with his humility and fear of God.
“Today, Nigeria needs leaders like Obaseki and his deputy that are humble; who can listen and care for their followers.”

Secondus commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman and his team for ensuring a credible election in Edo.

He also urged the commission to continue discharging its duty without fear or favor; saying the Edo election shows that if INEC, security men will do the right thing; the people will rejoice.

“If the security will also protect the people of Ondo without taken side; the joy of the people will be full just like in Edo.”

On his part, Obaseki said he was at the party secretariat to appreciate the party leadership on the role they played in his re-election.

This, according to Obaseki, started from the period of his acceptance to the party; when he was rejected from the All Progressives Congress (APC); the campaign period; and the election proper.
