I’m not in govt to amass wealth, says Obaseki – The Punch


Oladimeji Ramon

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has said he and members of his cabinet are not in government for the purpose of amassing wealth or becoming famous.

Rather, Obaseki said his pursuit was to serve the people of the state and deliver the dividends of democracy to them.

He vowed not to allow himself to be distracted by anyone.

The governor, according to a statement on Thursday, said these during a prayer session held in the Government House Chapel, in Benin City.

Obaseki said, “Members of my cabinet are united and we are working together for the common good of the people. We are one.

“Most of us have worked together for 10 years. Our focus is to move Edo State forward and fulfill God’s desire for His people.

“We are not in office to amass wealth or gain fame but to serve the people of the state. We are determined to take Edo State to greater heights and nobody will deter us from achieving our goals for the state.

“The task ahead is so enormous and our focus is to deliver good governance to the people of the state.”

The governor said despite ploys by some politicians in the state to create problems for his administration, the state had remained peaceful.

He thanked God for the favours he had enjoyed.
