The Edo State Governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Tuesday, commissioned a solar-powered borehole in Utekon Community, Ovia North East Local Government Area (LGA), with a promise to execute more developmental projects in the area if reelected for a second term.
The borehole, with five fetching points, was facilitated by the senator representing Edo South Senatorial District, Matthew Urhoghide.
The event took place during the reelection campaign rally of the governor and his deputy and running mate, Rt. Hon. Comr. Philip Shaibu, in the LGA.
Speaking on behalf of the governor, facilitator of the project, Senator Urhoghide urged residents of the community to come out en masse to cast their ballot for PDP in the September 19, 2020 gubernatorial election, assuring them that the governor will ensure the overall development of the area.
He said: “The Governor is here to seek your blessings and votes ahead of the September 19, 2020 gubernatorial election in the state. This is small compared to what the governor will do for you people when he returns as governor.”
The Okaighele of Utekon, Aigbovia Presley Osamudiamen, led the prayers for the success of the governor and his deputy in the forthcoming poll, assuring that the people of Utekon will vote for the PDP on election day to ensure that the governor is reelected.
“We will all vote for you come September 19, 2020 to ensure that you return for another four years. This election is just a formality; we are just waiting for the election date to do the needful.”
