Obaseki bombs Oshiomhole again

Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has again accused the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress(APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole of behaving “with impunity and other sense of lawlessness.”.

Obaseki said that Oshiomhole must inform him as the governor of the State of his visit to the State as courtesy demands.

Oshiomhole, who was in Bénin City at the weekend to attend the funeral ceremony of late Cecilia Agbonyinma, mother of Hon Ehiozuwa Agbonyinma, was booed at the Bénin Airport by some APC youths.

The Governor hosted former President, Goodluck Jonathan during a private visit and said:

“The former President is just extending the courtesy as the President, someone who has served the country in the highest level and you heard what he said.

“There is a courtesy when you are going to visit a state, you want to inform the person in charge of the state that you are coming and when you have time during a visit, you can now pay him a courtesy call.

“Unlike the unfortunate incident, we have been having in Edo State. It is really sad where somebody who had been the governor of a state visiting the state and does not realise that courtesy demands that he should inform the governor or the governor apparatus of his visit and the chief executive in charge of his security when he is in the state.

“It is really sad and unfortunate that people who have served, who should know better decided to behave the way they do or behave with impunity and other sense of lawlessness.”

Jonathan in a brief chat with journalists said Edo people are pleased with Obaseki.

Contacted, spokesman for Oshiomhole, Simon Ebegbulem declined comment.
He said: “I cannot react to it. I have been instructed not to speak on comments by Obaseki.”
