As the presidential and parliamentary elections have come and gone, it is time for every sane person to look inwards on whom to entrust Edo State to with a view to regenerating it.
It needs no gainsaying that our service infrastructures have suffered incremental decay of Greco-Roman proportions. Our land in the past 10 years has been unduly marginalized under the visionless leadership of the APC-controlled Edo State Government which speaks volumes for the dearth of infrastructures.
However, it is my unshaken conviction that with a game-changer in the person of my humble self with a genuine intent to lead will doubtless do everything humanly possible to revitalize the obviously decadent paralysis staring our state ominously in the face.
I therefore appeal passionately to our people to engage the reverse gear via volte-face and join forces with me, a genuine game-changer par excellence, a model of moral rectitude, unabashed pragmatism, voluminous machismo to rebuild Edo State.
However, I want to reassure you all that the period of genuine transformation is about to begin and you may rest assured that on no account shall I succumb to the diabolic whims and caprices of certain overlords whose greed, incompetence and gross insensitivity have reduced our birthplace to an economic backwater.
I remain committed to the ideals and resolutions reached at the historic 2018 Turin Declaration which saw delegates from across the EU.
Edo State, under my able leadership, shall witness a rapid and speedy transformation via projects designed to uplift the living standards of our people and best place our state on a par with other developed economies.
We shall be the first in this part of the Old World like Italy in post Nazi Europe to install and run a populist government via populist projects.
I need your active support irrespective of your political affiliation to bring about this change of which we urgently stand in need.
