Thousands of Edo State youth marched through street, waving soccer-style red penalty cards as a warning to a Governor that have failed to get his priorities right.
It was shocking today when the Youth from Edo North came out in large number to denounce the Adams Oshiomhole administration with red card.
Oshobugie Mohammed who was one of those who spoke on behalf of the group said ” Oshiomhole is our brother, but he failed us, the governme didn’t create job, nothing to show although he tried in some roads, but he failed our people and that is why we are out to express our dissatisfaction with his administration ”
Wellington Adomokhai said, we don’t want a man who sees himself as God to impose more hardship on us through his stooge because, what we have suffered under him is too much and we can’t continue ”
Kidnappings and youth gang violence have increase in the state.
During Oshiomhole swearing-in ceremony November 12th, 2012, he said “Our Government will emphasize human capital development, training and retraining of teachers and public servants; promotion of agriculture for food production, employment and increased income to our farmers and rural dwellers; small and medium scale industrial development. We shall continue to attract local and foreign investors to Edo State so as to create more jobs for our people”.
After eight years, unfortunately, non of the above mentioned statement and promises have materialised.
