APC chieftain, Chief Blessing Agbomerhe has come out to say that Governor Godwin Obaseki should resign as governor of Edo State.
He recently revealed that the governor has clearly lost the capacity to protect indigenes of the state from attacks.
According to him, it was very irresponsible for the governor to damage businesses owned by Edo people when he swore an oath to protect their lives and properties.
He added that it is sad that the people suffering in the hands of Obaseki are indigenes that helped him to power.
His words, ”How can a man who swore to build Edo economy be the one destroying businesses and chasing out those that are bringing in various investments to the state.
“What is disheartening is that those suffering in the hands of Obaseki were people that helped him to power,”
“He destroyed multi million naira hotel owned by Tony Kabaka. If he meant well for Edo people and wanted to seize Kabaka’s Three Star Hotel to demonstrate his allodia power as governor, he would have seized the building and use it as isolation center.
“I was attacked at the Benin Airport on the state government orders; Alhaji Suleiman Egele of Jattu was declared wanted by Obaseki’s government for two years. Kola Edokpayi was arraigned and imprisoned on trump-up charges. Obaseki personally supervised the attack on Senator Matthew Urhoghide, he stopped Dr. Pius Odubu from getting NDDC job, he wrote a petition against former State Chairman of Edo PDP and now PDP Vice Chairman, South-South, Chief Dan Orbih and asked police to arraign him, and Chief Francis Inegbeneki went submarine to save himself from Obaseki’s capricious tendencies, amongst several others that were harassed.”
