A group, Action Integrated Movement, (AIM), has promised to galvanized over 2000 votes for the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Godwin Obaseki in the forthcoming election in the state.
The Coordinator of the group, John Ogedegbe made the vow on Friday during a road show in Benin in solidarity with the re-election bid of the current governor of the state.
Ogedegbe said they have decided to throw their weight behind Obaseki because he shares the same dream and purpose with the AIM.
“One of the visions of AIM is human capital development and empowerment. We want to see how our members are empowered in all areas. Obaseki is a progressive governor, he believes in empowerment, and human capital development. AIM also shares this vision.
“So, as a group we thought it wise to come together in our numbers, in our capacity to make sure that we support who depicts our vision.
“We have come in solidarity to identify with the governor and support him in his second term come September 19.
“We are supporting a governor who has been supportive in the last four years and going into the election, we will be expecting 2,000 votes coming from AIM. We have no fear or doubts for that votes to be actualised.
“I always tell the youths this is the time to show and identify with people who believe in our future. Like we all know Godwin Obaseki believes in the youth, and as a youth, I will not see Obaseki relegated to the background. I want to make he comes second term to continue what he has started. I admonish the youths to join us in our solidarity movement”, he said.
Also speaking, the Local Organising Committee of the AIM, Salami David, said the Governor has been able to put some structures in place that have won the hearts of the people of the state and therefore, they have decided to reciprocate by casting their votes for Obaseki come September 19.
