Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Monday Okpebholo, has provided an insight into what his administration would seek to achieve if he emerges victorious at the polls.

Okpeghole stated this while apeaking on the sidelines of a flag off ceremony of a medical mission by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NNDC) in Akamkpa, Cross River on Monday.

The APC candidate said he will run an inclusive government if elected on September 21, 2024.

The Senator representing Edo Central in the 10th Assembly and a member of the Senate Committee on NDDC, also noted that he will adopt a bottom-top approach to running the affairs of the state.

According to him, unlike what is currently obtainable in the governance of the state, his administration will be practically driven.

‘‘It will be a governance that the people can relate with, a true people’s government in the real sense,” he said.

The APC candidate, who bemoaned the lack of infrastructural development across the 18 Local Government Areas of Edo, promised to re-enact Adams Oshiomhole infrastructural revolution.

He said that an emergency would be declared on roads, schools, and health infrastructure in the state.

“We are set for that. We will be taking a holistic approach to correct the decayed roads, schools, and health infrastructure that have been left unattended.

“If the Obaseki-led administration had built upon what the government of Adams Oshiomhole did, Edo would have been competing with a state like Lagos in terms of development.

“Our mission is to, from day one, hit the ground running and make Edo a better place. A place we can actually call our own, a place that everybody will be happy to see,” he stated.
