Today, despite all the hardship we’ve been through, and despite all the frustrations from opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), we have shown that we can never be more hopeful about our future and we’ve never been more hopeful about Edo State and the progressive government of the ruling party in Nigeria. I ask Edo people to sustain the hope.
I’m not talking about blind optimism, the kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead or the roadblocks that stands on our path. I’m also not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight especially the one that allows continuity for consolidation.
I have always believe that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidences to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep the good works of the Comrade Governor, Adams Oshiomhole and to keep working for Edo people through a fresh mandate given to Mr. Godwin Obaseki and Comrade Philip Shaibu.
Edo people, I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for the dividends of democracy as promised by Mr. Godwin Obaseki – the Governor-elect.
