Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has said he joined politics so he can serve his people, most particularly the youths.
According to the governor in a assertion on Thursday, October 29 by his Chief Press Secretary, Crusoe Osagie, he just isn’t in authorities to make cash but reasonably to serve his people, including that he will reasonably give up if he can not serve them.
Obaseki noted that there was the need for a mechanism to be put in place to guarantee transparency in authorities, including that the politicians should prioritise governance to profit the people. He reiterates that he was not in authorities to be famous or make cash on the expense of making certain development that might profit the people.
“Only few persons in government are held accountable for their decisions in government,” he said.
“I am not in government to make money; I am not in government for fame. I am in government to serve. Our youths are the reasons why I am in government. If I cannot serve you, I will quit.”
“The issues of better government, proper governance and transparency are what we are emphasising. When we have younger people who can use technology in government, we will have transparency and accountability, which informed my decision to have many younger people working in my government.”
Obaseki referred to as for a sturdy establishment that might guarantee legislation and order. He said, “And that is why we have the security agencies. Our security arrangement in the country must reflect our federal system as I can’t be a governor of a state and not able to hire and fire my Commissioner of Police, but #ENDSARS protests have helped us start the process.”
Meanwhile, former presidential media aide, Reno Omokri has advised that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has lost his stronghold on the politics of Lagos State.
Omokri made the allegation as half of his response to the call by Desmond Elliot, a Lagos lawmaker for the federal government to regulate the web and social media in Nigeria.
