The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari as well as the Inspector General of Police to stop Adams Oshiomole over what he describes as an attempt by the All Progressive Congress’ Chairman to make the state ungovernable for him.
In a statement issued by Obaseki’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, it was stated that Oshiomole’s plot was aimed at sponsoring protests across the state with the aim of maligning and undermining his government.
He said, “This, we believe, is part of Comrade Oshiomhole’s grand plan to make the state seem ungovernable so that he would only achieve his ambition of forcing the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in Edo but also cause chaos and civil unrest.”
Obaseki noted that the APC Chairman intends to achieve his plot by inciting the public to cause disaffection in the state in order to slow down the rapid pace of development which has won the heart of the majority in Edo state.
He further hinted that Oshiomole and the EPM were also exploring other options of public disobedience and disturbances aimed at disrupting public peace and undermining the safety of Edo people.
Meanwhile, Obaseki called on the president to intervene in the matter.
“We again call on the Presidency, the Inspector General of Police and the National Security Adviser to rein in Comrade Oshiomhole and stop him from continuing with his insidious intentions so as to safeguard law-abiding residents and indigenes of Edo State,” he said.
