Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, has reportedly allocated the office of his deputy, Philip Shaibu, in Government House, Benin to Alaghodaro for use as secretariat.
Alaghodaro is a Benin word that describes progress or moving forward.
It is an annual investment drive by Edo state government, which is Obaseki’s initiative.
According to a memo on Thursday, Edo Governor asked the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Osarodion Ogie, to “immediately” allocate the deputy governor’s office building to the trustees of Alaghodaro summit as their secretariat.
The chairman of Alaghodaro, through its secretary, had written to Obaseki for a permanent secretariat building to aid planning and logistics for the 2023 summit holding in the second week of November.
