Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has declared that the Government House was not a bank where people go to collect money.
Obaseki made this affirmation while receiving executive members, Women wing of the All Progressive Congress in the state, in Benin, the Edo State capital.
According to him, “I don’t have money to give anybody; the money I have is to work for the people.
“I can create money going by my experience as an investment banker; I can organise things and people must be ready to work.”
The governor further told the women that the days had gone when politics was about money sharing.
He added, “The question is what do you do with the political power. It is our level of commitment that gets us where we want to be.
“People should be ready to work. We should prioritise and cut waste because our biggest problem is waste.
“God chose me for a purpose to change things at this time and politics of money and sharing is not possible.”
Obaseki further lauded the women in the state for their support during the 2016 governorship.
He called on the women to partner the government in the development of the state, especially in the area of ensuring quality basic and technical education for their children.
