The reign of visionless rulers
At the tail end of the Summer of 2018, Nigerians of Edo State extraction had a conference in the city of Turin, Italy’s northern uplands where major resolutions were adopted to regenerate our state from the visionless rule of the All Progressives Congress.
Part of the resolutions by our team of competent technocrats is to revolutionise agriculture by developing agriculture and the agricultural sub-sector by setting up state-owned food farms across the three senatorial districts to generate revenue.
We reminded the attendees from across the EU that if Holland a country in northwest Europe with a comparatively small landmass could do so and rake in €92 billion euros from the export of agricultural produce Edo State with a much bigger landmass could do much more seeing that €92 billion euros is what Nigeria a country with over 200 million population earns in three years.
I had this posted in my fan page “Iyoha John Darlington for Edo State Governor” where the incumbent Governor Obaseki and his Deputy, Philip Shuiabu had requested to join which I approved at the period under review.
Today August 4th, I discovered to my greatest surprise our agricultural concept, initiative and development for Edo State had been stolen and implemented by the APC-led administration in Owan division of our state.
My question is where is their ability to think independently and create and implement in the first and second years of their administration?
In my interview with the Vanguard newspapers I gave details of how we intend to implement this concept by ensuring the state-owned food farms are established in the three senatorial districts.
Only today the incumbent administration in the state has planned to extend our agricultural initiative to other parts of the state.
This shows a government totally bereft of workable ideas to regenerate and reposition our state.
As it is, it is very obvious under the existing circumstances that the incumbent administration in the state lacks originality and has absolutely nothing to offer all things considered.
Hence, this obviously sad situation gives rise to a compelling need to identify with our team , the true dynamic agents of change in the forthcoming dispensation.
