The degree of insecurity in Edo State particularly the Benin/Auchi Road bordering the three senatorial districts within the state is unacceptable, the African Action Congress (AAC) has mentioned.
AAC in an announcement by its state Chairman, Comrade Hafiz Lawal, condemned Governor Godwin Obaseki over what it described as “lackluster performance.”
While expressing unhappiness over the worrisome killings and kidnappings in some components of the state, the celebration requested Obaseki to indicate Edo folks what his authorities has accomplished within the final 4 years.
The assertion partly reads, “There is billions of naira on security votes coming to Edo state on monthly basis that is never unaccounted for. We must begin to engage and question the government on quagmires like the one we are currently experiencing in Edo.
“We challenge the Obaseki-led government to show Edo people what it has done in the past 4 years. We urged him to intensify more effort to eradicate kidnapping and restore peace in the affected areas throughout the state.
“Infrastructure on the other part has remained unattended to. The development in a state would remain a far cry so long there is no conscious effort at investing in intellectual and physical infrastructure. The leadership of Governor Obaseki should initiate a drive that will see his campaign promises come to pass.”
