Edo governor asks youths to be patient with his administration

The Governor also told politicians in the state that there will be no free lunch for anyone anymore.

Godwin Obaseki

Obaseki said “If you have been patient all these years, will you not give me 90 days? We want to change things radically. We have not less than half a million of young men and women between the ages of 19 and 35, at least half a million who are doing nothing.

“I know if I have the figures, I will have to begin to do something about it. So please, just be patient with me. We will get there and we will get there sooner than you think.”

He said “You will find out that our administration is going to be slightly different, if not radically different, from the last four years and the reason is simple. In the last four years, we had to do a lot of politics because we had to recover our state from strange people who took over.

“By the grace of God, we have recovered our state; it is now our state. In the next four years, we are going to be concentrating on what to do with it.

“But the problem we have is that we now have to get value for everything we have. There is no free lunch anymore; everybody must now work to earn. You must work to chop.” he said.

Governor Godwin Obaseki also pledged to provide good leadership that would ensure improved infrastructure development, industrial growth and job creation in Edo state.
