Obaseki Pledges More Projects To Develop New Areas, Towns In Edo

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has pledged to sustain ongoing reforms and projects to open up new towns and communities in the state for increased economic growth.


Obaseki gave the assurance on Wednesday when he received the management team of Benin Club 1931, who were on a courtesy visit at the Government House, Benin City.
