Why am in politics – Obaseki


The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has explained the motivation that made him to join politics.

Obaseki made this revelation on Thursday via a statement his Chief Press Secretary, Crusoe Osagie, released.

The governor said he was motivated by devotion to general welfare as against self-aggrandizement and ego trip.

The statement reads in part, “I am not in government to make money; I am not in government for fame. I am in government to serve. Our youths are the reasons why I am in government. If I cannot serve you, I will quit.

“The issues of better government, proper governance and transparency are what we are emphasising. When we have younger people who can use technology in government, we will have transparency and accountability, which informed my decision to have many younger people working in my government.”
