Those Oshiomhole put in Govt have been making demands on the gov – PDP Campaign Council alleges
The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Edo State Campaign Council, Dan Orbih has claimed that Oshiomhole’s loyalists in government have made demands on Governor Godwin Obaseki but the Edo leader has been unwavering in his stance that he would not use the money meant for development of the State for any other purpose.
Orbih was speaking in Igarra, Akoko Edo Local Government Area, where the party kicked off a tour of the 192 wards to canvass support for Governor Obaseki who is in the race for a second term in office at the September 19 governorship election in the state.
He promised more economic development in the areas of job creation and infrastructure, adding that government’s funds will not be diverted into the hands of a few.
According to him, “Those Oshiomhole put in Government have been making demands on the governor: ‘Give us Edo State Government money so that we will stay with you.’” But the governor told them, ‘If you want to go, go. Edo State money is for the development of Edo State.’”
Orbih believes also that the recent defections from the party is an attempt to blackmail Obaseki who is seeking a second term in office.
The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Mr Adams Oshiomhole is a man that has lost his political relevance and should not be taken seriously.
