News Investigators/ The All Progressives Congress (APC), in the Edo governorship election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has promised to transform Okada town to a University hub if elected.

Mr. Ize-Iyamu made the promise on Saturday at Okada town, Ovia North East Local Government Area of the state, during his ward-to-ward campaign tour of the area.

He appreciated the Esama of Benin, Gabriel Igbinedion, for founding a University in the locality which he said had opened up the area for economic activities.

He promised to complement the efforts of Mr. Igbinedion in making life more comfortable for the residents of the area.

“I will construct more roads, open up this area for more development, provide water and aid farmers to become more productive and resourceful.

“Our goal is to transform the university town to a University City”

On his part, former governor of Edo, Adams Oshiomhole, expressed his gratitude to the people for their large turnout at the event.

He decried alleged neglect of the area in the last four years as there was no new project there since he left office as governor of the state.

Meanwhile, the Director-General, APC campaign council for Edo South, Samson Osagie, said he was impressed with the support the party was getting throughout the state.

Mr. Osagie expressed optimism that APC would win the Sept. 19, governorship election in Edo.

He restated that Mr. Ize-Iyamu was the best candidate in the upcoming election in the state.

Mr. Osagie assured that the APC candidate would not disappoint the people if elected, describing him as a man with the fear of God. (NAN)
