The Edo Indigenes Movement Worldwide (EIM), under the auspices of Edo Progressive Indigenous Association(EPIA) has said that the era of godfatherism has ended in Edo State.
Reacting to the latest political upheaval between the state governor, Godwin Obaseki and the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, EPIA President, Chief Bishop E Edokpolo said EPIA is rolling out measures to check any act of corruption in the state and block loss of funds belonging to Edo people.
Edokpolo also added “As we head to the forthcoming elections, we further advise Edo youths not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to hurt one another because, at the end we will need each other. We also call on our indigenes worldwide to stop the habit of presenting the image of Edo Indigenes negatively, especially on social media.
“If you don’t know, the effect will come back to hurt our generations, let us instead advertise more of our positive images to encourage and attract investors to our kingdom”, he stated.
