The Edo State chapter of the Coalition of Registered Political Parties (CRPP) has thrown its weight behind the move by the state government to seek loan from the World Bank worth N75 billion for the execution of projects in the state.
President Muhammadu Buhari had officially written the Senate to approve the sum of N75 billion sought by the state for infrastructural development.
A statement signed by the state chairman of the coalition, Dr. Samson Isibor, assured that when approved by the World Bank, the state governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, would judiciously utilise the fund to better the lots of the people of the state as he had done in the past.
“The coalition, therefore, appreciates and supports the Comrade Governor for seeking the loan from the Worlds Bank to execute laudable and people oriented projects.
“Since his assumption of office about seven years ago, he has executed an uncountable number of developmental projects such as road networks in rural and urban centres, the on-going modern Central Hospital in Benin, schools, among others”.
The group, therefore, implored the Senate to approve the loan without further delay as it would be used to improve the lots of Edo people.
It, however, condemned the PDP state chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, Senators Matthew Urhoghide and Clifford Ordia for opposing the loan, describing their action as anti-people.
