“During the flag-off ceremony of my governorship election campaign, I thanked the National Working Committee of the @OfficialPDPNig , on behalf of the people of #EdoState, for providing an umbrella to shield us when we were thrown out into the rain.”

“Four years ago, I made a promise to transform #EdoState; this is happening already. We have put our people first, even though this put us in trouble. God brought us thus far because the voice of our people is the voice of God.”

“In the coming days, we will unveil our programme, which is titled, Make Edo Great Again (MEGA).”

“The last time, I said “Let us go further”. You have followed me and we are where we are today. This time, working with you in a post #COVID19 world, we can #MakeEdoGreatAgain

“Our message is one of hope. As Edos, we are one people; we have one dream and one heritage. We still have the blood of our forefathers who built an empire that dominated their times. We can do better than they did 500 years ago. We will Make Edo Great Again.”


“This government belongs to the people of #EdoState and not to a few persons. So In the next four years, we are going to continue to focus on the people.”

“In the next four years, we will continue to deepen the use of technology to improve governance. We will also focus on agriculture, youth development and empowerment. Edo will be a major business and production hub in Nigeria.”

“On electricity, we invested in Azura but the power was injected into the National Grid and today we are in darkness in Benin. We have gone ahead to source for another investor (Ossiomo IPP) who is set to start supplying 55MW of electricity to the public by next month.”

“I assure Edo people that they have in myself and my deputy, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu, two people who are ready to put their lives on the line for them. We are not afraid and can never be afraid because God is with us.”

“We understand that the opposition party has now resorted to violence. But we must call on you to remain calm as we do not want bloodshed.”

“We know that one of their billionaire sponsors hired a lot of thugs today around Oba Palace and that they were destroying vehicles with @OfficialPDPNig flags. Please do not retaliate. They are only trying to scare the people.”

“They are saying that what they did today is an example of what they intend to do on election day. But thank God we have a law abiding president in @MBuhari .”

“I want to assure you that God has given us the victory. All we need to do is to continue to praise Him and look up to Him.”
