Business mogul Captain Idahosa Wells Okunbo has called on all sons and daughters of Edo state to join all hands on deck to ensure a hitch-free governorship election in the state come next month.
Speaking in his Abuja office, Okunbo said the only home he knows and will always cherish is Edo State and he knows it’s possible to create the dream Edo State the citizens have always wished for.
His words below:
“I love my state and will always would like her progress which can only be guaranteed by capable and responsible leadership and that is what I want Edo citizens to ensure they use their votes to ensure come September 19th,” Okunbo said.
“I would like to eat roasted yam with palm oil; which was the delicacy my grandmother brought me up with. Then I can tie my wrapper and go to the palace and make my king laugh,” he added.
On attacks on his person by some disgruntled elements, Captain Okunbo said he has chosen to rise above the fray and remain a father to all. He added that as a father to all, he won’t be bantering words with those he is supposed to be leading.
“I am like a city set on the mountain which can not be hidden and which will always attract admirers and some foes as well. That is natural. Therefore, you cannot be going into gutters with pigs for any reason. I am above that. This is no grandstanding but a reflection of my person,”
“Like I said in my video last week, we have to ensure that we change the mindset of our teeming youths from negativism to positivsim. And there is no way we can do that in an atmosphere of rancour and acrimony. Some of us have chosen to rise beyond this and build a nation instead of destroying it,”
