The governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has warned that those that want him to leave the All Progressives Congress, APC, will be disappointed.
According to him, he was not ready to leave the party.
His words: “If a handful of individuals start misbehaving and feel we will leave the party for them; they will be the ones to leave.”
The governor who spoke during a visit to his office by members of the Godwin Obaseki Support Group, GOSG, on Wednesday, said the APC was a party for the youths.
He added that his government was focused on infrastructural and institutional reforms that would stand the test of time.
“This is a government of real change, which is concerned about youths and the future. This government has performed beyond people’s expectations and we are proud of the things we have done so far,” he said.
While expressing appreciation for the support he had enjoyed from GOSG, he urged them to intensify their activities and join in the efforts to combat thuggery.
Speaking during the visit, the Director-General of the group, Henry Idogun, said his group was happy with the developmental strides of the Obaseki led-administration which included massive and sustained infrastructural development and deep-rooted institutional reforms.
He noted that the award presented to the governor by the Nigeria Union of Teachers, NUT, was well-deserved as the governor had made Edo State a reference point in transforming education in the country.
He gave the assurance that his group would continue to add value to governance.
He stressed that his group would support the second term bid of Governor Obaseki.
