In a recent announcement, Governor Obaseki proposed a new minimum wage of #70,000 for Edo state workers, a move that may initially seem promising. However, as his tenure draws to a close, it’s imperative for the people of Edo to delve deeper into the feasibility and sustainability of such a proposal. Questions arise about the timing of this announcement, prompting citizens to question its sincerity and practicality.

Obaseki’s tenure has been marked by various promises and initiatives, including the Gelegele Sea Port, Edo North Airport, Edo Industrial Park, and the revitalization of Bendel Brewery, among others. These projects have often been touted as catalysts for economic development and job creation in the state. However, their progress and impact remain debatable, with some questioning the governor’s ability to deliver on his pledges.

One cannot overlook the fact that the governor’s announcement of a significant wage increase comes amidst an election season, raising suspicions about its true intentions. The suddenness of the proposal, coupled with the timing, fuels skepticism among the populace. Why wasn’t this initiative introduced earlier if it truly served the people’s best interests?

As voters evaluate promises made during Obaseki’s tenure, alongside this latest proposal, skepticism grows about the governor’s motives. Is this announcement genuinely aimed at improving the lives of Edo citizens, or is it merely a campaign tactic? Moreover, the sustainability of such gestures hinges on future leadership, raising concerns about their long-term impact.

Furthermore, the pattern of appointing numerous Special Assistants (SAs) and Senior Special Assistants (SSAs) shortly before elections adds to the skepticism. These appointments, often made with short tenures, raise questions about their necessity and effectiveness. Are these appointments genuinely aimed at governance, or are they merely political maneuvers to garner support?

As Edo approaches elections, citizens must remain vigilant and demand accountability from their leaders. It’s time for Edo to see beyond the surface and critically assess the promises made for their collective future. The sustainability and effectiveness of policies and initiatives should not be overshadowed by political expediency. The people of Edo must ask themselves: Is Governor Obaseki truly working in their best interests, or are they being misled by political rhetoric? It’s a crucial moment for Edo to exercise its wisdom and hold its leaders accountable for their actions.
