The keynote of our Edo 2020 agenda is not individualistic but communitarian where the generality of our people shall be catered and well provided for by the state government.
We shall try to stamp out marginalization by uniting all the ethnic nationalities that make up our state because our state is none other than a mini-Nigeria.
The northern western, south-eastern and northern flank of the state are each peopled by Nigeria’s major tribes.
Hence, we want a revolution of the mind to unite against unproductive partisanship and tribal sentiments in the salvage operations that we lead.
It is not all about personal aggrandizement but the genuine employment or engagement of all dynamics geared towards rescuing our state from the deadly grip of visionless and directionless leadership.
Our administration will have no room for a cast of neophyte actors in running the affairs of the state as our appointments shall be merit-driven as obtains in the developed world where the famous and historic 2018 Turin Declaration took place.
We are genuinely and irrevocably committed to the implementation of this liberal ideal to revitalize our state from the ongoing decadent paralysis.
All we crave under the existing circumstances is solely identifying with our Edo 2020 agenda and sharing our vision to regenerate our state.
Upon my soul, we will not renege on any of our promises. May Heavens bear me witness this day!
