Edo 2020: Omoragbon emerges NCP flagbearer, asks Edo people to shine their eyes - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:
The governorship candidate of the National Conscience Party (NCP), Pastor Peters Osawaru Omoragbon has warned the people of Edo State to shine their eyes in the forthcoming election and ensure they vote for integrity over politricks, reports 
ITREALMS.

He gave this charge in Benin City, Edo State while delivering his acceptance speech as the party’s flagbearer in the governorship election tentatively fixed for September this year by the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The speech entitled “No Retreat, No Surrender,” Pastor Omoragbon recalled that in 2016 the people of Edo State were presented the duo of

Mr Godwin Obaseki of the then APC and Pastor Ize Iyamu of the then PDP.

“In the usual Nigerian politricks, the state resources were pillaged to canvas votes and bribed the electorates for their votes.” he alleged.

Stressing that Edo people are all witnesses to the current show of shame of the two actors in the opposing parties as they continue to recycle themselves from their parties interchangeably.

“What this shows to prove is that, there is no difference between the People’s Democratic Party and the All Progressive Congress in Nigeria. They are two sides of the same coin,” he said.

Pointing out that what cannot be taken away from the two parties and their members in both in and out of government is the pitiable condition they have left the Nigerian state through corrupt practices, maladministration and nepotism.

“Nigeria and indeed Edo State can boast of countless intelligent and resourceful people to choose from both home and abroad. That is why people like us will never cease to present ourselves to you people of Edo State whenever the opportunity calls for it as the best alternative between people of integrity and the Ali Babas and the 40 thieves currently usurping our collective will and wealth to oil their selfish personal political interests as opposed to the growth and development of Edo state,” he said.

Edo people, he said, have a choice between the drama between of the PDP and the APC, wondering “if Edo state does not deserve better?”

Pastor Omoragbon said that its in order to improve the well-being of Edo people that has encouraged him to accept his party nomination and once again present himself as the credible alternative.

Omoragbon, ITREALMS gathered has served the country as a qualified nurse since 1983 till date both in Nigeria and the diaspora and meritoriously retired from the civil service in Nigeria with no blemish.

“… That today, I get my honest monthly pension from the state as a mark of service and not from the stolen common wealth of the state,” he said.

Assuring that though he may not have money to share among godfathers or godmothers in order to buy votes, but trusting in God, he promised to serve Edo people with fear of God, “conscience to honestly serve you as your humble servant with all sincerity of purpose.”

In addition, he pledged that if elected, his administration will be transparent and accountable, maintaining that, “every income of the state that has not been properly utilized by anyone will be accounted for under extant laws in the country.”

Omoragbon further said that NCP is a mass movement and remain the only in Nigeria that candidates do not pay money to pick tickets to contest offices because that is where the corruption starts.

“For, when you purchase a ticket to the tune of millions of Naira, it is an open invitation to embezzlement of the state resources if voted,” he said, maintaining that his plans and programmes for Edo people will be premised on the party’s manifestoe “The Ten Care Programme.”

This include “Food care, Housing Care, Energy care, Transport Care, Health care, Security Care, Employment Care, Education Care, Water Care,” he said.

The governorship candidate, whose impact traverses the Internet industry on the continent, equally applauded the NCP leadership in Edo State led by Comrade Victor Ogba and the Secretary Haruna Perfect as well as the National Chairman, Mallam Yunusa Tanko who was represented at the ceremony by the Acting National General Secretary, Comrade Adebola and all other members of the party nationwide.
