Mrs Betsy Obaseki, the wife of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Godwin Obaseki has said failure of past PDP governments pushed Edo girls into prostitution in Italy.
Saturday Vanguard cornered her in Edo state on Thursday shortly after her husband got the endorsement of over 40 men of God and women groups across the state and she said this when asked about prostitutes/child trafficking in Edo state:
“Before we castigate our daughters who are engaging in trafficking or travelling to Italy, I think we should first sit down and ask why the situation is like that, it cannot just happen like that.
The obvious reason to me is that previous governments have failed in Edo state. It is the failure of government that caused it. People leave the country to go to another country insearch of greener pastures. A child who is comfortable in his father’s house will not leave for another man’s house.
Children go out when they are badly treated at home, when they are not happy. So rather than government castigating these our women they should look inwards and accept that they have a responsibility to these girls. If you fix this state and make it attractive our girls will not leave.
You can see that the trend started abating when Governor Oshiomhole came to power, they started seeing hope in Edo state and they are living here today doing one thing or the other. So past governments in this state failed our people and that is why they were all going to Italy
And I thank God for the Comrade Governor who has laid the foundation for progress in this state.
