The slow pace of Edo State government in addressing infrastructural development in the first year of the second term of Governor Adams Oshiomhole has been described as not encouraging.
This was the submission of guests while speaking on the audience participatory programme, Politics Today.
Commenting on various issues, the guests, Professor Richard Idubor, Austin Osakue and Sylvester Overe while analyzing on the last one year of Governor Adams Oshiomhole’s second tenure agreed that the tempo of development has slowed down drastically.
The guests said they are convinced that the issue might not linked to finance as recent record shows that the state government has pursued vigorously payment of taxes by different classes of individuals in the state.
They however advised the state government to brace up to the occasion in order for the people not to perceive that the second term is that of jamboree.
On the issue of recent protest in Benin over PHCN diversion of power supply to the highest bidder, a Chinese company, the guests described the situation as unfortunate as Nigerians are second class citizens in their own land because of monetary gains.
Politics Today is an audience participatory programme aired the same time on IT/Radio every Saturday from 10:30 to 11:30 in the morning.
