Edo state Governor, Adams Oshiomhole has advised voters not to fall victims to the actions of The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the 2015 elections edge closer.
The Governor appealed to voters not to be deceived by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who will share cubes of sugar, tubers of yam and grains for their votes, saying Nigeria’s politics has gone beyond that level.
Speaking at the commissioning of a 35-bed community health centre built by a member of the Edo State House of Assembly, Hon Dele Oloruntoba as part of his constituency project, Oshiomhole said:
“I want to appeal to our people that this forthcoming election is not for us to vote for cubes of sugar, tubers of yam or bag of rice. Our politics has gone beyond that level. If you vote because of these materiel things, the consequences are such that development will be far.
“Let me remind our people that there are two parties in Nigeria, the party that believes that government should work for the people and the one that believes that government money must be shared among some people and put into individual pockets”, he stressed.
He further went on to say that money has been appropriated for constituency project in the past but were put into private pockets by leaders of the PDP.
“In a democracy, everybody must be identified by his father’s name. If you work it will be seen, if you don’t work it will be seen and we must put your name against your performance.”
