Chief Lucky Imasuen, a former Deputy Governor in Edo, on Thursday described Mr Godwin Obaseki, a governorship candidate in Edo, as an economy driver the state needed now.
Imasuen made the observation during the endorsement of Obaseki by the state chapter of Pool Promoters and Agents in Benin.
He said what the state needed at this point of economy difficulties were persons like Obaseki because of his wealth of experience as an investment expert and chairman of the state economic team.
He said having been part of Oshiomhole’s government in this last seven years, Obaseki already knew what needed to be done to take the state to the next level.
Imasuen said that Oshiomhole had provided the basis for the growth of the state and what was left now was for Obaseki, who had been part of the government, to continue on the foundation that had been laid.
