The governor made the submission while addressing journalists in Irrua, Esan Central Local Government Area of the state, after an enlarged meeting with leaders in the senatorial district.

He noted that things are now done differently by his administration and Esan people can attest to the developmental projects being carried out by the APC led-government in the senatorial district, to make life better for the people.

“We just finished campaigning in some units and we are making significant progress. I am here to see the progress we have made in this part of the state.

Anslem Ojezua, the Chief of staff to the governor Taiwo Akerele, Special Adviser to the governor on Budget and Economic Planning, Joseph Eboigbe, chairman of Esan Central LGA, Mr. Waziri Idemudia and other stalwarts of the party.
