Also, the Eramah Anwian of Anwain Kingdom in Etsako East Local Government Area, LGA, of Edo North, HRM Mufutairu Oare, assured the Governor of the support of people of the area.
The monarch spoke during the Governor’s visit to his palace during the PDP campaign in the area on Tuesday.
He said, “Mr. Governor, we are assuring you that you are at home. This community road has been a disaster for over a thousand years until your intervention.
“We were cut off from Edo State until you gave us a good road that integrated us back as members of the state. We cannot forget such a gesture.”
