Edo State chapters of the All Progressives Congress[APC], and the Peoples Democratic Party[PDP], have engaged in a war over the performance of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
The Newly elected state chairman of APC, David Imuse, has accused Obaseki and the PDP of running a government with massive irregularities,boasting that it would soon make public details of such irregularities as he accused the Governor of alleged dictatorship. He said this in a statement.
Imuse , during the state congress of the party said: “As you know, we do not have a governor, we have a Sole Administrator.
“Obaseki’s PDP administration is the greatest scam that has ever happened in Edo political history. Details will be made known to Edo people very soon.
“The party is now fully prepared to play the role of credible opposition with constructive criticisms based on facts and intelligence.”
A statement made by the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chris Nehikhare describe the statement credited to Imuse as rag-tag.
He said: “How can a party that wishes to be taken seriously, call a government that is peforming a sacm?
“Our civil and public servants continue to get their salaries as at when due, contractors continue to be mobilised monthly and their contracts commissioned and made available for use by Edo people;
“Pension payments maintained and paid regularly while the state government COVID-19 management regime is the protocol of choice for many state governments
“How can such a government be a scam?”
