An ally of Adams Oshiomhole, the former governor of Edo State, Mr. Henry Idahagbon, has described the state governor, Godwin Obaseki as clueless and ignorant.
Mr. Idahagbon said this while reacting to an allegation by Gov. Obaseki that a pro-Oshiomhole political group, the Edo Peoples Movement (EPM) and its members are frustrating his plans for Edo people and not members of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Gov. Obaseki had also added that members of the group were behind the burning of major markets across the state.
However, Mr. Idahagbon said the movement no longer exist having achieved its purposes.
According to Him, Obaseki’s cluelessness made him not to know that the EPM was dissolved and buried on November 13, 2019.
Idahagbon, who is a former Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General of Edo State, said Obaseki lacked ideas on how to manage governance and political party.
He stated that EPM members were not arsonists that set markets on fire.
He said: “That statement from a clueless Governor is sad. If he needs idea on how to run government, he should come to us. To prevent fire in market places, he should buy fire trucks and resuscitate the moribund ones.
“Each market should have a fire truck and an industrial borehole. He collects N500m monthly as security votes.
He can buy many fire trucks from that money instead of going to Indonesia to sign worthless MOU.
“How can we go and put fire in the market when our mothers are selling there?”
