“We have two big pillars, we want to improve the lives of our people and create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive.

“Under the first pillar, we want to look at technology, health and education, in terms of creating an enabling environment, we want to create a situation where the ease of during business in the state is 100 per cent.

“When the ease of during business is improved, production in the different sector will increase,” she said.

She further said that her choice of becoming an aspirant in the Edo governorship race was to increase the voices of women in the decision making process.

“A lot of women are always at the back door, it is time we took our place in the political space; we have to be at the table, so that we can shake it.

“We thank all our fathers who are standing with us to bring light to the state, we are happy that our fathers are ready to support us,” she said.

Speaking on getting support from fellow women, she said ‘the myth that women don’t support women is gone; today’s women support one another; there is a new sisterhood”.

On his part, the Edo Chairman, Labour Party, Comrade Kelly Ogbaloi, gave assurance that the party was ready to give all governorship aspirants in the party a level playing ground.

“We have given clearance to certain questions that have been asked and I am sure by now that she is certain that this party is ready to do only what is right.

“We thank you for coming a second time to our office and we thank you for asking the kind of questions you asked,” he said (NAN)
