THE Edo state chapter of Road Transport Employers’ Association of Nigeria, RTEAN, yesterday joined the endorsement galore for the second term of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Briefing journalists on what it tagged “State of the union and the emerging political events in Edo State,” the state chairman, Comrade Sunday Erhahon, warned that “RTEAN as a formidable body in the state, would not fold its hands and watch enemies of the state throw tantrums at the governor; a complete gentleman, a lover of peace and an excellent manager of men and resources”?.
Besides, the Association condemned what it described as desperate attempts by ‘some disgruntled elements” in the society to malign the governor in pursuance of their selfish agenda.
It noted that all Edo people were witnesses to the monumental achievements of the governor in the areas of infrastructural development, economic transformation, social re-engineering and human capital development, adding that it was against this backdrop that its members in the state pledged their unalloyed support to Obaseki and his team.
Comrade Erhahon recalled the challenges RTEAN went through in the state but expressed joy that it emerge stronger and more united, saying that given the support and cooperation the Association has enjoyed from the state government, “it is only expedient that we remain loyal and supportive of the policies and programmes of the government under the visionary leadership of Mr Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu”.
