Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has said that only the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can rescue Nigeria and place it on the path of economic prosperity and sustainable development.
Obaseki disclosed this when he played host to members of the Atiku Support Group (ASG), led by High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, on a courtesy visit on him in Benin City.
He said, “If Nigeria is going to be salvaged, PDP has to step into the throne to salvage this country politically. The stakes are too high, we cannot allow Nigeria to continue the way it is going.
“I do not just see how we can continue to be deceiving ourselves. We try to prevent the country from growing by limiting and restricting imports, coming with all forms of phantom excuses to limit people from buying and importing what they cannot produce and need to live.”
Obaseki described Atiku as a Nigerian committed to the country, saying his achievements are visible. He is eminently qualified to contest the position of President of Nigeria and as you know, at the end of the day, power ultimately comes from God”.
Responding, High Chief Dokpesi commended the governor for his giant strides and transformational projects since he assumed office, noting that, ”the country has never been so divided and the country is now being referred to it as the poverty capital of the world, with all the indices clearly show that we are in a failed state”.
