Obaseki inciting Edo people against Tinubu -Agbomhere

Dr. Blessing Agbomhere, South South Zonal Organising Secretary of All Progressives Congress

South South Zonal Organising Secretary of All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr. Blessing Agbomhere has accused Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State of trying to incite people of Edo State against the administration of President Bola Tinubu.

He said Obaseki was trying hard to put the blame of his over seven years of incompetence on the new administration of President Tinubu.

It will be recalled that the Edo state Governor Godwin Obaseki in a statement released through his Special Adviser on Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie, accused the Federal Government of being responsible for the deplorable state of federal roads in the state and the massive suffering faced by the people as a result of the removal of petrol subsidy which led to the skyrocketing of the price of the essential commodity.

Agbomhere in a statement on Tuesday, he said the Edo state governor has found a convenient way of putting the blame of his total failure on the less than three months old administration of President Tinubu, which came into office with the road map of removing the burdensome fuel subsidy which has become a huge drain on the meagre revenue of the Federal Government.

He insisted that the Edo state governor has nothing to show in terms of achievement in his over seven years in office but was rather flaunting the landmark developmental strides of his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole such as the civil service secretariat and making it look like it was his administration’s project.

According to him, despite taking over office in 2008, when the state’s monthly revenue dropped to N1.6 billion due to the world economic crisis while IGR was N30million bringing the total to N1.9billion, Oshiomhole’s administration started and completed several road projects, including an ultra modern state of the art Specialist Hospital.

He challenged the incumbent Governor Obaseki to show to the world what impact he has been able to make rather than the usual promises of Memorandum of Understanding, MOUs, which his government has been notorious for signing with fictitious entities with nothing to show for it.

Dr. Agbomhere called on Governor Obaseki to desist from inciting the people of Edo state against the administration of President Tinubu which he said has the key to transforming the Nigerian economy.

He urged Nigerians to be patient as the process of transformation will soon kick off with the screening and swearing in of cabinet ministers which is expected in the days ahead.

He noted that President Tinubu needs a lot of encouragement as he is poised to surpass the feat achieved by legendary leaders such as Lee Kuan Yew, Mahatma Ghandhi and Nelson Mandela.

Agbomhere said never in the history of Nigeria has there been so much hope for a better country as there is at the moment, noting that Tinubu was famous for picking the best in human capital and using them to turn a difficult situation to a progressive and prosperous one as evident in his eight years as Governor of Lagos State.
