Frontline chairmanship aspirant in Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo State in the forthcoming local government election in the state, Benedicta Ebuehi, has vowed to commit all her leadership experience and influence within and outside Nigeria in partnering with developmental groups to make the local government an enviable one in Nigeria when elected as chairman of the local government council.
“We must move ahead with confidence, determination and surefootedness in our collective efforts in making Etsako East great. There can only be a reform when there is the will. I have the political will, the experience and necessary connections with relevant development partners that will ease the burden of building an enviable council.”
According to her, “we need to strengthen and expand our current infrastructure in order to create the needed foundation on which we will collectively build the new Etsako East of our dream. We have great potentials for social economic attainment and for leadership.
“For us to realize these potentials, our two major resources; land and people must be developed and judiciously utilized”
She maintained that Etsako East Local Government could offer better alternative as a major travelling and transportation hub in connecting to Abuja, Kaduna, Kogi State and all the Northern States by focusing on its comparative advantage of the high sea.
“When elected as the chairman, my administration will open up Etsako East waterways and construct a befitting world class water transport service through the Agenebode High Sea as safer roots in travelling to the north rather than travelling by road. Etsako East can become a model local government in Nigeria through super sea transportation service to neighboring states. We have the plans; we have the passion. All that is required is your nomination and vote in making Etsako East an enviable local government.”
The Chairmanship aspirant who was speaking during her consultation with leaders and stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in Okpella said, “when we create an enviable water transportation system in Etsako East, the ripple effect will increase commerce and industry in our communities. It is time to take advantages of our available infrastructure in building and developing our locality.”
