The Senator who was the Special Guest of the ceremony held at Uromi, the headquarters of Esan North East Local Government Area, commended the Very Rev. Fr. Itaman and the management of Lumen Chrsti International High School for creating a center of educational excellence and citadel of learning of global standard in Edo State.

Senator Akpakomiza, as he’s popularly called, seized the occasion to react to Governor Godwin Obaseki’s recent claims of spending a whopping 7 billion naira in three months to purchase diesel for the designated buses owned by Edo City Transport Service Ltd (ECTS), that runs a free transport services available to residents residing in some parts of the Benin metropolis.

The Senator said; “for over a year, I have provided a free public transport services for the people in my senatorial district (Edo Central), and I understand the cost implication as an individual footing the bill for the provision of diesel, maintenance of the luxurious bus and payment of salary of the driver.

“Though the 7 billion naira claims of the Governor for the provision of only diesel for three months is highly questionable, I strongly believe that, the vast majority of Edo people would be more impacted if the Governor had allocated part of such stupendous amount towards the fixing of the roads in the State that has become death traps.”

The Senator further admonished Governor Obaseki to prioritize the interests of the vast majority of Edo People over partisan politics, and genuinely work with the Federal Government to save Edo people from the prevailing nightmare and traumatic stress experienced in majority of the roads across the state.
