25 Years of Disappointment: Time for True Change in Edo State

patrick osaigie



For twenty-five long years, the promise of democracy in Nigeria has been marred by disappointment and disillusionment. The very military regimes we once fought to dismantle achieved more for our nation than the current state of what can only be described as a “Demonstration of Madness.” Our democracy has weaponized poverty against us, stripping us of the ability to afford even the most basic necessities, like a bag of rice.


But there is hope on the horizon. Olumide Akpata stands as our champion, the leader who will rescue us from the failures of both the APC and PDP. We cannot afford to waste another 25 years on empty promises and broken dreams. We must draw inspiration from the likes of Alex Otti, whose exemplary leadership has transformed Abia State to . Now, it’s time to place our trust in Olumide Akpata and Prince Kadiri, whose impeccable academic credentials starkly contrast with the scandals of past administrations.


In Edo State, APC and PDP have shown a blatant disregard for improving education and providing reliable electricity. It’s time for a radical shift, and Olumide Akpata embodies that change. Let us not forget the individuals who have been manipulated and exploited by these failing political parties. The thugs and criminals acting on their behalf have strayed, but it is not too late for them to choose a better path. Their actions do not define them, and they can still contribute to a brighter future for themselves and our country.


As we move forward, we must embrace the hope and promise that Olumide Akpata and the Labour Party bring. We must reject the failures of the past and build a brighter future for Edo State.
