Sen. Daisy Danjuma has come out to urge Edo women to rally round the re-election of Gov. Godwin Obaseki for a 2nd term in the Sept. 19, governorship polls in the state.
Daisy Danjuma, who is the wife of retired Gen. Theophilus Danjuma, revealed this at a reception organized in her honor by Edo women in Benin.
According to her, Obaseki’s amazing performance in all sectors of the state’s economy forced her to endorse his candidacy for a second term at a function in Lagos even before the governor’s defection to PDP.
She added that Obaseki will do something great and must be supported for the 2nd term.
His words, “Obaseki was in APC and I saw all that he was doing in Benin. I then said to myself this is not about party but about the individual.”
“In my opinion, he has done well but as a member of the board of trustee of PDP I supported Obaseki for continuity even before his defection to the party.”
“Since, the nation’s return to democracy in 1999, former governor Lucky Igbinedion ruled for eight years, Adams Oshiomhole also ruled for eight years why is it that a performing governor will not do eight years. “There is no reason a performing governor will not have a second term.”
“I saw it that Obaseki will do something great, that is why I said in spite of my party I must support him for a second term so that he can finish all the good job that he started.”
“It is your duty to encourage everybody around you, convince your husband, children, friends and associates to come out on Saturday to vote for Obaseki and PDP.”
“Sept. 19, is a very important day and nobody should encourage violence.”
