Edo will produce 450mw of electricity by 2017 - Obaseki



– Godwin Obaseki, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Edo state, has promised to add 450 megawatts of electricity to the national grid by 2017

– Obaseki said the power plant would not only boost business in the state, but increase the number of small and medium enterprises


 – He also restated his desire to create a minimum of 200,000 jobs and boost agricultural production if elected. Mr Godwin Obaseki, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Edo state, has promised to add 450 megawatts of electricity to the national grid by 2017.

 The APC gubernatorial candidate addressing the Igbo Community Union in Benin on Wednesday, September 14 said the 450mw would be generated from the ongoing Azura Power Plant which the APC administration attracted to the state. According to Vanguard, Obaseki said that when completed, the power plant would not only boost business in the state, but increase the number of small and medium enterprises.


He also reiterated his desire to create a minimum of 200,000 jobs and boost agricultural production in the state if elected. “We have moved away from the era of politics of sharing to the era of politics of development. Oil money is no longer available for sharing and so there is a need to elect a leader capable of marshaling ways for development aside oil money.

 “When we invest to boost agriculture, businesses in the state will also be boosted with an additional 450mw of electricity with the completion of Azura Power Plant,” he said. Obaseki pointed out that more businesses would lead to employment which would create wealth and boost tax collection, saying this is what politics of development is all about. He said the recent postponement of the governorship election affected his campaign organisation.


Meanwhile his opponent Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) condemned the September 28 new date fixed for the election. He also said the reason given by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the postponement was weak, adding that the electoral body did not bother to consult the PDP before shifting the date of the election.
