In a statement signed by the Party’s National Publicity Secretary on Friday, the PDP said “Over the years, Governor Obaseki has distinguished himself as a practical, ingenious and prudent manager of resources, which qualities he has employed to transform Edo State with unparalleled human capital and infrastructural development in critical sectors including healthcare, education, agriculture, oil and gas, housing, transportation among others.
“The PDP appreciates Governor Obaseki’s untiring roles with other leaders towards the stability, growth, and success of our great Party, particularly in the mission to rescue, rebuild and redirect our nation from the misrule of the All Progressives Congress.”
In a related development, the party also congratulated Senator Philip Aduda on his appointment as Senate Minority Leader.
It said that Senator Aduda’s emergence as Minority Leader boosts the confidence of the party and his colleagues in the Senate.
It further noted the trust in Senator Aduda’s capacity to lead the party’s fold in the Senate, while charging him to use the attributes that earned him this enviable position to strengthen his commitment as a strong voice for the independence of the legislature, the democratic tenets of the Rule of Law, and the pursuit of the interest and wellbeing of the people.
“Senator Aduda’s selection as the Minority Leader of the Senate could not have come at a better time than this when Nigerians are looking up to the PDP to salvage our nation from the misrule of the APC.
“The PDP urges Senator Aduda to put in all his efforts to ensure that our party’s caucus in the National Assembly remains united and focused on the task ahead,” the statement added.
