Roland Igbadumhe, an aide to the Edo State governor and a renowned comedian, has posited that the unprecedented development accomplishment by Governor Adams Oshiomhole, won the September 28 election for Godwin Obaseki, the All Progressives Party (APC) candidate.

This is as calm returns to the ancient city of Benin after the mild protest that followed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declaration of Godwin Obaseki, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as winner of the gubernatorial poll.

Roland Igbadumhe, a.k.a. ‘Youngest old man’ who spoke to newsmen in Benin, said the good work of the APC led-government of Oshiomhole, spoke ‘eloquently’ during the campaign and at the election.

Igbadumhe, who described the eight years of Oshiomhole as second to none in the South-South geo-political zone if one compares the federal allocation accruing to each of the states of the region during the period of eight years.

“You can go across the states, from Edo South through Edo Central to Edo North, the rural communities and see for yourself. The Okpekpe people in Etsako were completely cut off from civilisation and so was the people of Igbanke in Edo South before Oshiomhole came. Those communities can now boast of good roads and even streets lights courtesy of Oshiomhole.

“Not to talk about the secondary and primary schools where pupils and students were forced to learn under the tress like they were in the Stone Age before the coming of Oshiomhole. Now, you can see the schools complete with modern facilities comparable to those in the United States and Europe. There is no one who will see these accomplishments and see vote for the PDP, after their eight years of disaster,” he stated.

The popular comedian who ‘caught his teeth’ during the fame Opa Williams Night of A Thousand Laugh, also lauded the choice of Godwin Obaseki and Phillips Shuaibu, as governor and Deputy governor respectively.

He said the economic acumen of the governor-elect and the political exploits and experience of his deputy elect would be translated into more development, adding that he strongly believed that the Obaseki administration would achieve more successes than the current administration.

He however appealed to the supporters of the PDP and other parties who might have been aggrieved by the outcome of the election to sheathe their swords and join the winners in moving the state forward, noting that no man or party is bigger than the collective wish of the people.
