Edo Guber Race:Ogbemudia Endorses Oshiomhole

Two-term Governor of defunct Bendel State, Dr Samuel Ogbemudia has strongly endorsed the candidacy of Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole July 14, 2012 governorship election. “Benin people already spoken”, he said. during an unscheduled visit by Oshiomhole who inspected road projects around the hitherto prone Five Junction area of Benin City, Ogbemudia said, “Your Excellency, I salute your dedication, and loyalty which is all that you need to be sworn-in in July”.

Turning to the entourage, Ogbemudia who was obviously elated by the quality of work of the roads criss crossing his home on Iheya Street, said, “All of you bubble with enthusiasm as you over in July. Also turning to Oshiomhole, he said, “You go there, win and leave the rest for us. Your job is to go and win and back to Osadebey Avenue”.

Narrating how he berated some spiteful members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) who visited him recently, Ogbemudia said, “Those PDP people who came to see me, I asked them how did you ? They said they came through a brand new road. And I said don’t you think you say thank you to Governor Adams Oshiomhole who built it. They said their thank you will not go to Adams Oshiomhole but to the contractors who built it. And I told them that learn to give credit to whom credit is due”.

In a veiled response to those throwing darts against Oshiomhole, the former governor who implored the ACN flag bearer not to despair, said, “If you ask how many people want to be in Osadebey Avenue, you’ll get more than 20 and they will say all sorts of things against each other”

Recalling the chummy relationship he had with Oshiomhole when he was Minister of Labour and , Ogbemudia said, “ had relationship throughout my time as Minister of Labour and . Having done that to me during my tenure as Minister of Labour, it is my turn to reciprocate”

While effusively thanking Oshiomhole massive road work around Five Junction  area, Ogbemudia who regretted his inability to resolve the flooding problem of the area during his time as governor, said, “You can see the quality of work and the level of compartment. are waiting till the appropriate time to and thank you”.

Responding, Governor Oshiomhole said he was only building on where people like Ogbemudia stopped. “We are following your foot steps”, he said.
