Edo gubernatorial election is one of the trending headlines in Nigeria with the entire nation beaming its lens towards the Niger Delta region. In regards to the saga that has been happening within the sphere of the state’s political arena.
We came across how APC is believed to be perturbed and bewildered when confronted with the achievements of the seating governor, Godwin Obaseki who is the running candidate for the People Democratic Party (PDP) after departing from APC.
Reason Why Godwin Osagie Says APC is Having Sleepless
The Special Adviser to the governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, over the weekend stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been having sleepless nights after being confronted with facts about the role Governor Godwin Obaseki played in the establishment of the modular refinery which is almost at its final stage of completion in Ologbo, Edo State.
Mr. Osagie mentioned in his words “After last week’s visit of a Federal Government delegation to the Edo Modular Refinery in Ologbo, the APC is now clearly confused as their campaign seems to have been deflated by the stellar performance of Governor Obaseki and the near-total acceptance Obaseki enjoys from Edo people,”
He further emphasized that, “The truth will continue to dwarf and ultimately blot out falsehood and propaganda, as the Ologbo visit by the Federal Government delegation has just done to APC’s efforts at misinforming the public.”
The media adviser explained that the Presidency sent representatives last week to Ologbo in Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area of the state last week, to inspect, check and scrutinize the refinery project.
He further stated that, the government officials were satisfied with the rate at which the ongoing project is been handled and showered encomiums on Governor Obaseki for the momentous achievement.
Mr. Osagie’s reaction was in response to the comments by John Mayaki, the APC Media Campaign Council Chairman in Edo State, who asked the governor not to “take glory” for the refinery project.
He also added by referring to the report of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on how states in the country have performed in the area of reducing unemployment.
He said the unbiassed and data-focused agency emphasized efforts of the Edo State government at plummeting unemployment figures in the state.
The governor’s aide also stated that there are documented facts available to members of the public and the relevant government agencies to counter APC’s lie.
