Elders of Iruekpen community in Esan West Local Government Area have lamented the lack of basic amenities and insecurity in the community, while also expressing hope that the emergence of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the APC as the next Governor of Edo State would herald a new beginning and spark positive changes and development.
Receiving the APC candidate on Thursday, the Odionwele of Iruekpen, Pa Akhabue Isesele, who spoke on behalf of the elders, painted the grim picture of the community’s poor infrastructure.
He appealed to the APC candidate to improve the operations of the Police by providing a befitting building for the Divisional Police Headquarters within the community, and ensure steady electricity supply by facilitating a stable connection to the national grid if he is elected as Governor on the 19th of September.
The Odionwele also pleased with Ize-Iyamu to carry out a renovation of the magistrate court destroyed by unknown hoodlums ten years ago for quick dispensation of justice.
The elders offered prayers for Ize-Iyamu’s success at the polls and advised him to abide by the promises contained in his documented manifesto, the SIMPLE agenda, to move the State forward and restore inclusive governance.
In his remarks, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu said he was overwhelmed by the prayers and advice of the elders of Iruekpen community. He promised to provide solutions to their expressed concerns and exceed their performance expectations if elected as the next Governor of the State.
