As Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State marks three years in office, women from the 18 local councils of the state have been urged to support his re-election’s bid for a second term.

The state Commissioner for Social Development and Gender Issues, Mrs. Maria Edeko, yesterday, made the appeal in Benin City, at the 2019 Edo Women Summit tagged Alaghodaro.

She said: “It is the people that should determine who they want to go into a social contract with. Women should lead the fight for a second term for Obaseki. When there are peace and prosperity, the women are better off. We all as people must support him to continue his governance without any disturbance.”


According to her, Obaseki has re-defined the purpose of governance, which is for the common good of the people.

Speaking on the administration’s achievements in the last three years, Edeko said investors were coming to the state to harness resources in certain projects.

She listed the projects to include the Benin River Port, Edo Modular Refinery, Edo Innovation Hub, Edo Production Centre, Benin Technical College, food production through agricultural empowerment programmes, job creation, culture and sports. 

In her remark, Wife of Edo State Governor, Mrs. Betsy Obaseki appreciated the women for their unflinching support for the Obaseki-led administration in its bid to deliver dividends of democracy for the people.
