A teary article has emerged from the Edo State government of Governor Godwin Obaseki, written and signed by the Secretary to the Edo State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq. The hollow and lengthy statement, however, lacks substantial ambition except its motive to ’chide’ the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
But in so doing, the article 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 to be 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.
From the very first lines of the statement, one sees through the propaganda and the mischief intended by the author of such a statement.
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.
