More Troubles For Obaseki As Party Leaders Withdraw Support
Some group leaders in Edo chapter of the All Progressives Congress on Monday announced that Governor Godwin Obaseki does not deserve a second term following several crises plaguing the state.
The state has been the subject of discussions in the last few months because of the bitter feud raging between the National Chairman of the ruling party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the state governor, Godwin Obaseki.
Although the duo have openly settled the rift, with the governor paying his predecessor a visit at his Benin, Edo State home.
Alas! it appears Oshiomhole is still against his second term bid following several accusations by the party.
Briefing news men, the group said Obaseki, has not given a tangible and acceptable account of his stewardship, three years into his administration, adding that his attempt is to spoil the APC brand by employing deceitful tactics to give Edo people the impression that he is performing.
“Obaseki exhibited the highest degree of infidelity to Edo people and the All Progressive Congress by abandoning projects he participated in sourcing funds for, and then turned around to blackmail the same government that started those projects.
“Governor Obaseki is only dreaming, to think that because he is the custodian of our collective patrimony he will intimidate us and hoodwink Edo people to shy away from giving him a run for our money he is amassing to run for second term.
“Let this serve as notice to him that some of us are going to present ourselves for next year’s gubernatorial elections and by the time the array of contestants are unveiled, Edo people will not choose deceit over sincerity, rhetorics over substance and a government that has encouraged capital flight from the state over a government that will make sure the resources of the state circulates among its citizens.” the group stated.
