Why gov Obaseki should resign immediately- APC

The All Progressive Congress APC, in Edo has called on the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki to resign immediately.

Acccording to the ruling party, the security challenges the state is currently facing shows that the Governor has no more business with the government house.

The Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the party in Edo State Col Imuse (rtd) made this call on Sunday while lamenting on the rate of insecurity in the state.

He added that Obaseki is now bereft of ideas on how to govern the state effectively., noting that he is failing in his duties to protect Edo people.

He said: ‘He has failed in duty to uphold his oath of office to protect the lives and properties of Edo citizens, his penchant for disobeying court orders and his decision to plunge Edo state into more indebtedness with his recent clandestine borrowing of N25 billion from the capital market as the reasons for his call’

‘No one is safe in Edo. The state is under siege. We have a governor who has lost focus. Fear and insecurity have become the order of the day, yet the Governor takes N700 million monthly as security vote. And so far he has not been able to deploy this huge amount to mobilise the security agencies in the state to fight criminality”.

He also said that the Governor is not regarding the rule of law.

‘A court recently ruled that the duly elected chairman of Etsako East Local Government Council who was illegally removed from office should go back to his seat. But the Governor, in disobedience of the Court, mobilised thugs to seal up the entrance of the Council Secretariat at Agenebode, denying the Chairman access’

‘Because Edo state is designed to be governed by relevant laws”, Col Imuse said, “Edo APC is ready to take the bull by the horns, as it can no longer condone a governor who has no regard for the rule of law”.
