Monday EBALU, Benin City
The state Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Dan Orbih has said that the Party does not go about sharing money to market women like the APC because of election.
He stated that rather, the party stands for fulfilling its electioneering promises which include the empowerment of Edo women irrespective of party affiliation.
Chief Dan Orbih made this statement in Benin City on the occasion of the women empowerment ceremony organized by the Ogbeide-Ihama Foundation, founded by Engr. Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, member representing Oredo Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives.
The State PDP chairman lauded the initiative of the Hon. Ogbeide-Ihama to empower women in Oredo constituency with cash and other business boosting implements including cars, motorcycles, sewing machines etc. He said that the party was proud of him for his performance and achievement so far.
Chief Orbih stated that he was personally gratified to have supervised a party primary that produced Ogbeide-Ihama among other performing PDP members at the National Assembly.
He therefore recommended the PDP governorship candidate for the forthcoming Edo State governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu whom he said has a proven record of performance and a vision to take Edo State to the desired level of development.
The Honourable Member representing Oredo Constituency in the Federal House of Representatives, Mr. Ogbeide Ihama on his part, urged Edo women to vote Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the next governor for the empowerment of women in the state.
Ogbeide who is the founder of the foundation, said during the empowerment and presentation of the grants of N10,000 each to 1,000 Edo women in Oredo said, “ the Edo women never let me down when i needed them most but made frantic efforts against all odds to ensure that i emerged victorious at the poll”.
The Federal Law Maker said the empowerment program and grants was to fulfill his campaign promises to the Edo women.
He said that with Ize-Iyamu as governor he would be in a better position to do more for his constituents
He said for the women to continue enjoying more of the empowerment programmes and grants, there is need for them to rally round Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, who is the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has taken a swipe at the Edo State Governor Comrade Adams Oshiomhole for his lack of seriousness towards tackling insecurity in the state in spite of the enormous amount he collects monthly as security vote.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu condemned the levity and avariciousness of the APC governor, in his round of campaign visits to some stakeholder groups in Benin City which include the Edo Mass Movement, Uwelu Spare Parts Traders and Association of Cassava Growers of Nigeria.
The PDP candidate stated that the rate of insecurity in the state has led to the relocation of many revenue yielding and job creating business concerns from Edo State to neighbouring states. He also said that it is regrettable that the state of insecurity has led to the molestation of our women in the suburbs and villages by Fulani herdsmen unchallenged.
Pastor Ize-Iyamu said, “That it was the worst case of insensitivity and rapacity for the governor to give only N5 million to the police despite collecting N500 million monthly as security votes”.
The PDP governorship flag bearer promised to redress the situation when he is elected governor and assumes office on November 12, 2016.
