From  JONATHAN AWANYAI and JOHN ONOJA, Benin City 

A clergy and aspirant in the forthcoming governorship election in Edo State,Amb(Pastor) Amos Osalumese Areloegbe under the Action Peoples Party (APP), in this interview with our corresondents in Benin City spoke on his plan for the people of the state if elected into office.

Areloegbe, while explaining why he wants to take over from Godwin Obaseki as governor of Edo state promised that transparency and accountability would be the hallmark of his administration which will be all inclusive.

The Pastor turned-politician disclosed that what inspired his journey into politics was the need for further development of the state.Adding that Governor Godwin Obaseki's administration has  done well in the last three years but he( Areloegbe)
can better deliver dividends of democracy to the people of the state if elected. 

On his political ambition, Areloegbe said welfarism and economic development of Edo State would be his priority if he emerged as the APP candidate and won the governorship election.

According to him, his greatest attraction to politics in Edo State is the  innate desire to surpass the achievements of  Prof Ambrose Alli,Samuel Ogbemudia and Godwin Obaseki as regards good governance in the State.

The aspirant, however, expressed optimism that he would emerge victorious on the 19th of September 2020 when the gubernatorial election will be held in Edo State as he has the support of the electorates.

Adding that, he is poised for victory in the forthcoming governorship election and would not be intimidated by other political parties, having previously contested Edo gubernatorial seat under Labour Party(LP).

The Edo gubernatorial aspirant, implored the electorate to take destiny in their hands by ensuring that they elected credible individuals that could provide good governance rather than those that would not care for their welfare.
