The governor said his energy was geared towards developing the economy of Edo State, with the aim of making it the most prosperous in Nigeria in the next 30 years.

Obaseki said Edo State, before now, was bedevilled with lack of visionary leadership and shortage of resources.

The governor, who is at loggerheads with the National Chairman of his party, the All Progressives Congress, , said  the his administration would work towards building an international airport in the state.

He said, “Politicians are only concerned about the next election. But for us, we are not thinking about the next election because by the grace of God, that is spoken to already.
