Name 3 projects commissioned by Obaseki, get N1m – Edo PDP boss challenges journalist
The outgoing Chairman of Edo State Chapter, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Dan Orbih, has challenged a journalist to name three projects commissioned by the State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and get N1 million.
He issued the challenge while reacting to the crisis between Obaseki and his godfather, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
According to him, Oshiomhole and his godson have destroyed the state with their supremacy battle.
Orbih lamented that the governor has not been able to achieve anything meaningful in the state since assuming office.
The party boss, while speaking with Vanguard, described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as a deceptive party, saying it hoodwinked Edo people with empty promises.
Orbih said, “The APC came in under falsehood and propaganda promising people all sorts of things. They said there will be no ticketing. Oshiomhole said no to agbero, no to godfather but everything they told us they are doing the opposite and Edo people are worst for it.
“They are involved in an unending internal crisis which is avoidable because it is now obvious the problem in Edo APC is between a godfather and a godson even though the man who today is a godfather told us no to godfatherism. He has since assumed the title of a super godfather. The godson who is the Governor has refused to dance to the dictates of the godfather. That is the root of their problem.
“Let us assume that is an internal matter between members of the APC. That quarrel is now affecting governance. I challenge you to tell me how many projects you have accompanied the Governor to the commission.
“If you name three I will give you one million naira. We now have a situation where what it takes to assess governance is the number of MoUs or foreign trips by a governor who when the tension gets too much, embarks on a foreign trip and nothing has come to the state in terms of impacting on the development of the state.
“They have used their internal crisis to bring the vehicle of development to a halt. They have engaged the vehicle on a reverse gear. When you look at the background under which the APC came to power in Edo, the promises, the expectations and what we have now, you will weep for this state.”
