Edo Deputy Governorship Position: Mercy Johnson’s Husband Releases Statement

My attention has been drawn to various campaigns on-going
online about the upcoming election in Edo State later this year.
The campaign mainly by young people (youths) and students
from Edo State and my local government, is that I should vie for the position
of Deputy Governor in the state. This is based on the premise that since the
party zoned deputy governorship slot to Edo Central where I am originally from,
I should represent various interests in the area.
This is a gesture I appreciate; it is a good thing for
people to recognise your good work and want you to serve especially when one
has been supportive without being in government.

I want to make it clear that the position of deputy
governorship is not a position one campaigns for, the party leaders alongside
members chose who flies the party’s ticket alongside the governorship
candidate. However, I am available to serve in whatever capacity the party
wants me to serve.  I am a loyal party
Most importantly, the people of Edo State deserve much more
than what they are getting from the present government.
Good governance is not what is seen on the pages of
newspapers, good governance reflects in the lives of the governed. People of
Edo State can testify themselves if they have gotten the best from the present
government. The people know they got the wrong end of the stick. Good
governance is not PR, it is value-adding.
In whatever way things swing in Edo State, I am an
interested stakeholder in the happenings in my state and a visionary individual
who believes good leadership coupled with youthfulness can turn the whole of
Nigeria and Edo State around without unnecessary noise.
I will continue to engage relevant stakeholders in Edo State
regarding this matter.
I once again appreciate the various youth associations,
students union, all the higher institutions in Edo State and women who want me
to show interest in the upcoming election.

I will continue to help my people with or without political
power as I have always done without being in government. I believe in the
popular saying that, ‘ask not what your country can do for you but what you can
do for your country’.
