Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state, says he was elected to serve the people of the state and not political leaders.

Obaseki, represented by Osarodion Ogie, secretary to the state government, said this on Friday during the second anniversary thanksgiving of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Christian prayer contact committee.

“We can’t share the money and still meet up with our electoral promises to the people of the state,” he said.

“Our focus is on Edo people, developing the state and making life better for the overall well-being of Edo people.

“My administration has done well by fulfilling my electioneering promises; we have built institutions and restored law and order in the state. We are not owing our civil servants; we will pay August salary on the 20th due to the holidays.”

According to him, pensioners no longer demonstrate in the state because their entitlements are paid when due while civil servants receive their salaries on the 26th of every month.

He added that the dream of the administration was to make the state the economic hub of the nation.

Chukwu Anayo, general overseer of Covenant Ministry International in Imo state, said the governor had made the state peaceful for various religions to worship God.

Anayo said prayer had helped the governor to achieve significant development, adding that the people were benefiting from his leadership style.
