Obaseki: I’m ready to die for Edo people
The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has said he is ready to pay the ultimate price in the service of the people of the state.
He said as long as the mandate of the governor was given to him by God for the service of the people, the state was worth dying for.
The governor said this at an interdenominational church service organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria as part of activities to celebrate Alaghodaro (Progress) 2019, which marks the governor’s third year in office.
Obaseki said, “People ask, is Edo worth dying for? I say yes, Edo is worth dying for. And if we have to die for the service of Edo State, so be it. But I am sure God will not let it happen that way.”
He thanked members of the All Progressives Congress for their support through his three years in office.”
