By Dipo Awojobi – The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has said that there would be no free money under his administration.
He said that his administration would do things differently from the immediate past administration to move the state forward.
Obaseki who said this at the weekend at the Government House in Benin, said everybody must work to be able to eat and develop the state.
He said that the Oshomhole government had rescued the state ‘from strange people’ who destroyed it and that the next four years would, with less politics, be used to move the state forward.
In another development, Obaseki’s predecessor, Adams Oshomhole, has been urged not to interfere in Obaseki’s government.
The Catholic Archbishop of Benin, Bishop Augustine Obiora Akubueze said during a special thanksgiving mass to mark the end of Governor Oshiomhole’s tenure that Edo people did not want a divided state, where political leaders were constantly fighting one another.
