Mr. Godwin Obaseki, the Governor-elect of Edo State has stated what his first assignment in office would be. He made this known during an interactive session with journalists in Benin City. He said;
“My first assignment is to put together a team and get appropriation for next year because we have to hit the ground running.
“The focus will not change in terms of infrastructure and education. The added focus will be on job creation and empowerment. That is why I need to focus on the budget and ensure I get enough appropriation to emphasis the social aspects which I promised during my campaigns. We will
continue to build roads and refurbish schools. What is important is how to get people to work.”
