Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State on Sunday advised individuals and groups expecting freebies from the new government that there would be no “free lunch anymore”.
Obaseki noted that his administration would be radically different from his predecessor as it would focus on governance, rather than politics.
The governor, who made this known at the Government House in Benin, added that everyone must work to earn any benefit and move the state to its desired level.
”You will find out that our administration is going to be slightly different, if not radically different, from the last four years and the reason is simple. In the last four years, we had to do a lot of politics because we had to recover our state from strange people who took over.
“By the grace of God, we have recovered our state; it is now our state. In the next four years, we are going to be concentrating on what to do with our state.”
