In a press release signed by the Director-General, PDP Governors’ Forum Hon. C.I.D. Maduabum, LL.M, he said that Obaseki’s birthday this year is particularly important coming on the heels of his emergence as the consensus PDP Governorship candidate for the imminent Edo State governorship election.
The statement further read, “As you face the Edo State electorate, we ask God to guide and guard your activities. To give you the wisdom, strength and good health required to face the battle for the soul of Edo State.
“We ask you to continue to work and embrace all the people of Edo State, particularly the downtrodden and the vulnerable. We admire the job you have done in Edo State in your current term which informed the high level of confidence reposed in you by the PDP and the people of Edo State.
“We pray that God will lead you to do even better in your second term, in terms of achievements already recorded in the provision of infrastructure, healthcare, education, rapid economic development, social development initiatives like your determined onslaught on the human trafficking cartel and human capital development, sustained improvement on ease of doing business, incorporation of technology in running the affairs of government, deepening of cultural and sporting infrastructure and generally repositioning Edo State as a modern well governed progressive State.
“We wish to use this opportunity to convey the solidarity of all your colleagues in the Forum and to assure you of their support in the forth-coming election in Edo State, the statement concluded.
