Governor Godwin Obaseki says in the first four years of his tenure, at least one hundred and fifty-seven thousand (157,000) jobs have been created in Edo State.
The governor disclosed this at the governorship debate organised by Channels Television.
He argued that his government has really tackled unemployment effectively.
“We promised that we will generate a minimum of 200 thousand jobs in a 4 year period. Just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we had created direct and indirect jobs for Edo people as much as a hundred and fifty-seven thousand.”
