Over the years, even before becoming the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has been known to be a man of his words. So, when he recently said the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) will support the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government’s economic policies, nobody doubted him.
Obaseki declared then, that the support will be hundred percent so as to sustain an investment-friendly environment for investors while also ensuring that governance is brought closer to the people.
The Governor gave the assurance while addressing journalists on arrival at the Benin Airport, Benin City, after being elected the Deputy Chairman of PGF in Abuja.
The governor said the forum will provide a formidable support base for President Buhari to achieve the goals of his administration in the next four years, noting that as an association, the PGF is an arm of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which is the dominant party.
On the new leadership of the National Assembly led by Senator Ahmed Lawan and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila in the Senate and House of Representatives respectively, the governor said, the sort of hindrance and obstruction seen in the last four years are not likely to reoccur this time around.
