All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has said that he wants to produce 100 millionaires during his first term in office if elected.
Obaseki made the comment on Monday, September 19, 2016, during an interactive session in the Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area of the state.
“God has blessed us in Edo. No state is like Edo. We do not have any reason to be poor; the only reason why we are poor is because of bad leadership. With good leadership, the sky is our limit,” Obaseki said according to Punch.
“So, the first thing I am going to emphasize in employment is to register the unemployed because we have employed a lot of people in the last eight years.
“We have done a research in government. I do not want to be a governor where people fight to be senior special assistants before they can buy cars. I want to be a governor that will produce 100 millionaires after four years. That is my goal, so that at the end my tenure, the people will truly lead because they will be empowered,” he added.
The Edo election was initially scheduled to hold on September 10, but was postponed to September 28 for security reasons.
