Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola has said road construction, particularly in rural communities, help civilisation. Fashola weekend at the commissioning of the projects marking six years of Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State in office, which include the newly reconstructed 11 blocks of 33 classrooms and staff offices at Payne Primary School, Benin City and the Amedokhian-Ugboha road, traversing two Local Government Areas in Edo Central, expressed joy and satisfaction with the remarkable developments in roads infrastructure that have taken place in the state.
Fasola commended his Edo State counterpart for having the mind, the heart and the right team, stressing that besides opening economic activities in all the areas in the state with roads, the rebuilding of school infrastructure is the right thing to do.
In his remarks, Oshiomhole thanked Fashola for coming all the way from Lagos to commission the projects and congratulated teachers in the state especially Payne Primary School for their diligence and promise that their welfare will continually be given top priority.
Oshiomhole called on Edo State people to use their voters card wisely by voting Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) as the next president of Nigeria and all All Progressives Congress, APC candidates in the forthcoming general elections.
Earlier, a resident of the community, Isaac Oyorba, the Oyorba of Benin Kingdom had traced the history of Payne Primary School prior to the assumption of Oshiomhole as governor of the state.
“Let us pray for Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his party because they have brought light to all aspect of our life. Why should we leave light for darkness? Is it roads, beautification, street light, empowerment of our children, new democratic culture? Oshiomhole has done well. We cannot move away to opposition no matter their advertisement and television propaganda, we know where we are going,” he said.
Oyorba admonished electorate in Oredo LGA to get their permanent voters card as the only means to effect change not only at the presidency but in all elections from the State Houses of Assembly to the National Assembly.
