The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State at a rally in Okada, Ovia North East Local Government area urged voters to vote President Goodluck Jonathan to enable him continue with his good work. The State Chairman, Chief Dan Osi Orbih, described President Jonathan as gentle, calm, calculating, humane, peace loving and good natured.

Chief Orbih stated that Edo People were grateful for what the President Jonathan led PDP federal government has done so far with the transformation agenda. He pointed out that thtere has been transformation in the Power sector, transportation (railway system), airports (improvement of facilities), establishment of 12 new universities and several government colleges. He also went on to mention the benin-Ore-lagos road, Benin-warri-east-west road, Abuja-lokoja-Benin road, and Benin-Abraka express road. In the agric sector he commended the e-wallet system, the Ukopoke irrigation project in Benin and many more.

Chief Orbih used the occasion to introduce the Senatorial candidate of the party, Pharm. Matthew Urhoghide and the House of representative candidate Barr. Omosede Igbinedion to the crowd and urged them to vote for the duo.

Chief Dan Orbih also emphasized the need for a strong and virile Edo House of Assembly to put a check to fraud and waste of Government funds by the Adams Oshiomhole led APC government. He lamented that it is difficult to justify a government immersed in debt and unpaid salaries spending N223, 136,475.50 for Christmas. He gave the voucher numbers used to criminally deplete Edo Peoples commonwealth as :

EXT/GOV/GHSP/2586/14
EXT/GOV/GHSP/2580/14
EXT/GOV/GHSP/2563/14
EXT/GOV/GHSP/2578/14
EXT/GOV/GHSP/2522/14
EXT/GOV/GHSP/2521/14
“This expenditure will certainly take a deserved place of SHAME in the Guinness book of records. We are informed that even the Vatican city did not spend 20% of the amount spent by Adams to celebrate Christmas. The people of Bethlehem will be shocked to know Adams spent this sum to celebrate Christmas”.

He therefore asked the people of Ovia North-East to vote PDP in the house of Assembly Election to put a stop to this corrupt, financially reckless and wasteful Adams Oshiomhole led APC government.
