APC Warns Obaseki To Stop Inciting Public Against Tinubu

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has issued a warning to Godwin Obaseki, the governor of Edo State, to desist from inciting the people to rebel against the administration of President Bola Tinubu.

Obaseki was accused by the APC of placing blame on the new government for the appalling condition of the roads in Edo.

Obaseki recently stated that the willful neglect on the part of the federal government was to blame for the poor condition of the federal highways in the state. He asserted that the federal government was uninterested in facilitating a workable solution that would permit his administration to fix the roads and then be reimbursed for doing so.

This assertion was made by the governor after a video that went viral showing members of his entourage stranded in what seemed to be the Benin-Sapele Road.

In addition to this, Obaseki stated that the suggested palliatives by the administration led by President Bola Tinubu "is a continuation of fraud the Federal government has always undertaken against the people of Nigeria."
In the meantime, the All Progressives Congress (APC) claimed in a statement that was distributed by Blessing Agbomhere, its spokeswoman for the South-South, that Obaseki has discovered a simple method to blame President Tinubu's administration in order to deflect attention from his own failure.

Instead of "flaunting the landmark developmental strides of his predecessor," the APC asserted that Obaseki, the governor who took over for Adams Oshiomhole when Oshiomhole's term ended, had nothing to show in terms of accomplishment in the more than seven years that he had been in office.

"Despite taking office in 2008, when the state's monthly revenue had dropped to N1.6 billion due to the world economic crisis, and when IGR was N30 million, bringing the total to N1.9 billion," the APC declared. "Despite taking office in 2008, when the state's monthly revenue had dropped to N1.6 billion due to the world economic crisis."

The party in power, on the other hand, issued a challenge to Governor Obaseki, saying that he should "show the world what impact he has been able to make rather than the usual promises of Memorandum of Understanding," which the governor's administration is renowned for signing with bogus businesses despite having no evidence to show for it.

Following this, the party issued an appeal to Obaseki, demanding that he stop inciting the people of Edo State to rebel against President Bola Tinubu's administration.

In addition, it asked Nigerians to be patient as the process of transition would soon begin and the screening and swearing in of cabinet members is anticipated to take place in the coming days.
