Ms. Patience Key, the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) for the September 21 Edo governorship election, has pledged to focus on human capital development.

Receiving the PRP’s Certificate of Return for the Edo governorship election in Abuja on Monday, Key emphasised her commitment to development, particularly in human capital.

”I am running for the governorship of the state to bring about development.

“We are looking at human capital development. When we talk about human capital development which our party believes in; it is about believing in the capacity of every citizen.

“We believe in serving the people; the poor people; the under severed population. What we want to do is to take them from where they are and transform their livelihoods.

“We want to make sure every single citizen in Edo does not cry of poverty, unemployment and that the state does not cry of retrogression anymore,” she said.

She outlined her vision for addressing poverty, unemployment, and retrogression in Edo State, emphasising a strategy of uplifting the underprivileged and transforming livelihoods.

Key, a former Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation, Americas, also pledged to prioritise women empowerment and increase female representation in leadership positions.

“We will give them that opportunity, what we call empowerment, to be able to understand that leadership is not competition; leadership is collaboration,” Key affirmed.

Expressing optimism about her chances in the election, Key emphasised the resolve of the people of Edo State and the need for a new direction in governance.

Malam Falalu Bello, the party’s National Chairman, presented the certificate to Key and expressed confidence in her ability to secure victory in the Edo poll.

Bello was represented by the party’s National Treasurer, Mr Abdullahi Bayawo.

“We have ruled in Kano, Kaduna, and by the grace of God, our candidate will be the first female governor in Nigeria,” Bello remarked, highlighting Key’s track record of service and dedication to the people.

He urged the electorate to consider PRP as a viable alternative to the major political parties, emphasising the potential for positive change under Key’s leadership.

“People have tried APC and PDP. Now is the time for them to try PRP. If she is voted into power, a lot of changes will take place in Edo,” Bello concluded. (NAN)
