Edo: Obaseki to consolidate on impactful projects in 2020
Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, yesterday, reassured that his priority in 2020 would be on policies and programmes that will enhance the wellbeing of majority of citizens. He promised to do this through creating enabling environment and building the necessary social and physical infrastructure for Edo people to achieve their aspirations.
Obaseki, in a statement, noted that his administration remains committed to fixing roads, rebuilding schools, facilitating expansion of existing businesses and ensuring a vibrant, boisterous state that all Edo people will be proud to be associated with.
The governor said: “My dear citizens and residents of Edo State, as you are aware, our focus and emphasis in the last three years have been to improve your living conditions and make you more productive. We are improving the educational system and emphasising technical education, improving access to quality healthcare, creating opportunities for businesses to thrive, providing more jobs and investing in infrastructure.
“I want to assure you, fellow citizens, that we will not relent on our efforts at infrastructural renewal, industrialisation, and social development programmes, which we are currently undertaking across the entire state.
“This year, we are doubling our efforts to surpass the set target of 200,000 jobs, which I promised in 2016, as we intend to deepen our relationship with local and international partners to create more opportunities for our youths in the different sectors of the state’s economy. On the back of the success from the Innovation Hub and production centres, we will build similar hubs and centres in Edo North and Edo Central. Construction work in the Benin Industrial Park will commence early this year.”
