Edo state law makers react as Obaseki threatens Oshiomole

The continuous political battle in Edo state has gotten to another level as Fourteen members-elect of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC in Edo state have reacted to threats by the state Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki to deal with the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, accusing the governor of planning to take out the party leader.
This was as former Executive Director, Media Affairs to Comrade Oshiomhole, Prince John Mayaki lambasted the state government for accusing the national chairman of disrupting public peace and safety in the state.
He said the statement from the state government which was signed by its Secretary, Osarodion Ogie was hollow and empty as it only revealed the spinelessness of the state government which stems from their own misappropriation of law and order.
Worse, the article calls into question, the salt and essence of the SSG who prides himself as a lawyer. The greatest dilemma nevertheless, is how Obaseki’s tyrannical tendencies have rendered him useless to the state and unable to ever get anything right.
“Addressing the rightful and nationwide celebrated chairman of the incumbent party as ’suspended’ immediately threw the article into the true light of its nature, revealing the factionalism and divisiveness that informed the statement. It portrays a side at loss with the fiery stride of a giant who can only resort to setting paltry traps for the victorious warrior.
“This fact manifests itself in the terms and structure of the remaining part of the needlessly long and ramshackle statement. Governor Obaseki, through his muppet lawyer SSG, began a shameful revision of facts, appropriating events well known to the people of Edo State all in the bid to achieve his already failed motive.
One of the most shameful of that act is the turning on its head, a well-documented incident where the official state government thug group, led by Philip Shaibu, attacked the National Chairman, the Oba of Lagos, Dr. Aderemi Makanjuola, and a number of others at a convocation ceremony.
It is a known fact that these men sought refuge in the house of the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole; but in the government’s statement of lamentation, they presented the strangest narrative of that singular event ”, Mayaki said.
Also, addressing a news conference Thursday in Abuja, the lawmakers urged President Muhammadu Buhari, party leaders and the Inspector General of Police IGP, Muhammed Adamu to call the governor to order, saying should anything untoward happen to any party chieftain or faithful in the state, the people would never forgive their inaction.
Gov. Obaseki had earlier threatened to deal “ruthlessly” with Comrade Oshiomhole if the party chairman ‘does not behave”.
The governor had reportedly sai d; “All this nonsense they are doing, if anybody in the name of our party tries to do anything contrary to what we have agreed as a party we will deal with that person ruthlessly no matter who he is.
“We are warning the suspended National Chairman. If he continues his activities in Edo State, I will show him that I am the Governor of Edo State. While he was Governor, he would not tolerate a fraction of the misdemeanour and misbehaviour he is undertaking today.
I have declared that if Oshiomhole comes here to Edo to say he wants to disrupt the activities of the state and the party we will deal with him the way we know how best to do it”.
However, the 14 Lawmakers-elect said such threats must not be treated with levity.
