PRESENTED BY ENGR. ISAAC IGBINOSUN ON 12TH OF JULY 2018
Mr Godwin N Obaseki,
The executive governor of Edo State.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to this town hall meeting held today in Brussels, Belgium, this 12th day of July. 2018. Wa hia Ọbokhian.
GBO is a sociocultural organisation that seeks to bring all Edo citizens in diaspora under one umbrella for the purpose of bringing back the lost glory of the great Benin kingdom, promoting the Edo culture and tradition, additionally assisting in the economic development of the State.
GBO intend to:
1. Assist in the sponsorship of Edo culture and language competitions, organise quiz and awards amongst primary and secondary schools across the state to promote Edo culture and tradition.
2. Erect a diaspora pure water plant in Edo state that will provide employment for Edo youths, thereby assisting the government to create employment for Edo citizens.
3. Invest in Agriculture in the not too distant future to assist government on food security for our people.
4. Build a secretariat that will house Edo library, mini museum and GBO administrative office.
5. GBO also have a humanitarian unit that will meet the needs of indigent Edo residents.
In order for GBO to achieve these set objectives in Edo state, we ask the governor to assist us with the following:
1. Assist us in acquisition of land.
2. Provide adequate security.
3. Provide proper policy and enabling environment for GBO to grow in the state.
GBO attention has been drawn to the killings of our fellow citizens in Edo especially those engaged in agricultural activities, this is further compounded with intentional destruction of crops in the farmlands, thus rendering owners helpless. GBO is sad and seriously concerned over this inhuman act. We therefore ask you sir, his excellency, the governor of our state, Edo state to fish out the perpetrators of this evil act and prosecute them. Agriculture is one of GBO cardinal projects, we need safety of farm workers and crops so as to get back returns on investment.
Thank you very much sir for your audience.
