In the build up to the September 21 Governorship election in Edo State, the duo of Dr Azemhe Azena and Hon Edith Isokpan must be given the required attention by everyone who desires a change in our dear Edo State.

Backed with an overwhelming goodwill that is laced with charismatic and youthful followership, the political mandate of these two young politicians has brought hope and respite to Edo people who are tired of the old cyclical politicians, Godfathers and their desperate cronies.

It is against this backdrop and the unique prism that their ticket provides, that every lover of the State and what it represents, should begin to see a future devoid of the old order of politics and public service to the new ways of altruism, patriotism and selflessness in the service to motherland.

Their vision is simple: a peaceful and a rich State where everyone is free to achieve their life desires, as the government perform its roles and the citizens their obligations.

To achieve this, a new approach to governance with truth and true love for the people, which will in turn produce or earn the trust of the governed is their focus. This is the skeletal description of the meaning of their popular cliche: “a better Edo State is possible”

There’s no ambiguity in the fact that the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, the humble platform through which all the aforementioned will be achieved, has become a veritable alternative political party in Edo state today where our future hope can be comfortably anchored without doubts and fears.

Others have come, saw and couldn’t conquer despite the investment of the people’s good will in their professed but feigned ability to deliver. Dr Azemhe Azena and Hon Edith Isokpan, who are known philanthropists and helpers of the downtrodden especially in Edo state, are ready to upturn the applecart of retrogression and non performance of the previous players.

With them, and from A to Z, everyone is carried along and the woman folk, which constitute the bedrock of our society are being given their pride of place. Who then would you rather vote for?
