Following recent violent activities in Edo state, the governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki has assured citizens and residents that the state will not be forced to negotiate with the perpetrators of violence.
Obaseki disclosed that the state government is responsible for law and order in the state, as well as the liberty of the ordinary law-abiding Edo citizens and residents and thus, assured that peace and safety will be restored to the state.
His words: “Edo people, the majority of whom are law-abiding, should rest assured that the promise to restore sanity to the state has been fulfilled. The state government would never return to the old order. The oppressive actions of different groups who had been fattened over the years by extorting honest and hardworking people in the name of revenue collection have been curbed. No matter the amount of pushback from perpetrators, they remain dislodged and would not have any reason to harass honest traders, citizens, and other residents.”
He, however, urged the people to remain calm and vigilant and disclosed that the perpetrators of the recent cases of violence would be trained by the state government on how to make a living through honest means.
“We are also building vocational and technical training institutions where these people will be directed and trained for free in order to reintegrate them into the society where people live off the fruit of their daily labour in legitimate enterprises, he added.
He also disclosed that the state government would be setting up various sectors of the economy to ensure that jobs are available to the skilled, semi-skilled and the unskilled.
