  According to him: “This unique blend of experiences, coupled with my career in the public and organised private sectors, has allowed me to engage with a diverse array of communities and institutions, both locally and globally.

  “Consequently, I have witnessed the struggles of families, the frustrations of small businesses, and the deprivations of our communities.

  “The disconnect between sub-national governments and the central government has further aggravated the multidimensional poverty among our people.

    “Our daily challenges are evident. Our schools, hospitals, and roads, which were once symbols of progress, cry out for urgent renewal. We must not only restore these infrastructure but also elevate them to a standard befitting of our state’s aspirations. This is the path of development I believe in, and I am championing.

   “I therefore call on you to join me in making Edo a ‘Wadoghe’ Phenomenon {A marvel to behold} by Transforming our Rural and Urban Spaces Together (TRUST)”
