Obaseki made the statement yesterday at the birthday ceremony of the Senior Pastor of Royal World Ministry, Benin, Pastor Rex Omosefe. He said;
“This is the primary reason I am in the race to be governor today – to use everything that God has given me: my time, creativity, vast network and energy, to improve the lives of our people and to better our state.
“I am offering myself not for personal gains – because I have been richly blessed by God – but out of a deep sense of duty to God and a genuine desire to serve the people of Edo State.”
It will be recalled that Obaseki had been accused of longing to get into power for his personal interest.
