National Conscience Party (NCP) in Edo State is strategising to wrest the Edo South senatorial seat from those “holding the people hostage in terms of representation.”

At a press conference in Benin City yesterday, NCP senatorial candidate for Edo South, Peter Obobaifo, accused other political parties of lacking conscience, which is the party’s joker to win next year’s election in the state.

The senatorial hopeful promised to offer Edo South what he is known for in the past twenty five years.

He explained that, through the Institute For Benin Studies, he had been given education and research free to Edo people, pledging to intensify them with Edo South constituency project allocation when voted into power.

“Using the self sacrifice platform of Institute for Benin Studies, the academic and intellectual development of Edo South has been a project executed without support from any government by me and few friends over the years.”

“If I could use my civil service salary to mentor and produce not less than 10 professors, hundreds of doctoral and masters degree candidates, then with statutory allocation, every Edo South person should have education that will free his mind from oppressive tendencies that has been the situation overtime.”

He, however, stressed the need for the forthcoming elections to be issue-based and devoid of electoral malpractices.
