- Obaseki describes Oshiomhole’s comments as an onslaught against his administration.
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has instructed all his aides to desist from making comments or reacting to what he described as “hostile comments and discussions” credited to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole who is the former governor of Edo State has in an interview with Channels had complained about Obaseki’s style of governance adding that he stands to gain nothing from stopping him to run for a second term.
He claimed that Obaseki abandoned major projects by his administration, especially the hospital and the waterworks projects.
He also said the governor refused to pursue the continuity agenda they promised the people of the state.
The governor in a statement jointly signed by the Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Paul Ohonbamu and his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, described the comments as an onslaught against the government of the state.
”The Edo State Government observed over the weekend, leading to this week, very hostile statements credited to our revered National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, across the various media platforms, including radio, television, newspapers and the social media.
“This onslaught against the governor and government of Edo State, widely publicised, has also been trailed by enquiries about the state government’s response to these attacks, from various stakeholders, both within and outside the country,” part of the statement reads.
Obaeski who said he has chosen to pursue the path of peace and reconciliation in dealing with the issues told his aides not join issues on the ensuing hostile comments and discussions.
“Consequently, the Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, has instructed that no state actor, within Edo State Government, should make any comment whatsoever or join issues on the ensuing hostile comments and discussions.”
