A Global Edo Organization Commends Obaseki For Taking Back Edo Properties, Call Him To Constitute Executive Council Without Delay
Following the recent demolition of some illegally acquired properties in Government Reserved Area (GRA) in Benin City by the Edo State Government, a trail-blazing global Edo Movement, The Edo Dynasty United Organization Worldwide has commended the Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki for the impartial action even when he was one of the beneficiaries of the properties given as a parting gift to loyalist by the immediate past governor of the state, Comrade Adams Oshiomole.
The Organization made this commendation through its worldwide President, Comrade Brown Ehigie Osemwengie in a media chat with Radio Esan.
According to the International human right activist, “I want to commend the governor of Edo State Mr. Godwin Obaseki for his impartial action recently in the state in which he revoked the Certificate of Occupancy (CofO) of some land issued illegally as a parting gift to loyalists on the eve of Adams Oshiomole handing over to Obaseki. This action is highly commendable and applaudable considering the fact that he Obaseki also revoked the plot of land allotted to him by the immediate past governor”, he said.
Furthermore, Osemwengie added, “the governor’s action speaks volume of his dedication to the goodwill and future of the state and will serve as deterrent to future leaders of the state to desist from the act of using state properties to compensate political loyalists. You cannot give what you don’t have. State properties should only be used for the benefit of the citizens and not the other way round. The Edo Dynasty United Worldwide highly commends the governor on this”, he stated.
The Organization used this medium to also call on the Governor to constitute the executive arm of Edo State government without delay considering that he was sworn in for a second tenure over three months ago. This is a worrisome development considering the massive trust and supports the entire state conferred on the governor during the last election in the state. The fact that he is yet to appoint commissioners and other key government officials is a bane in the state development and a cause for rhetorics both among his supporters and those in opposition who are looking for ways to discredit his leadership style.
Osemwengie added “as a listening government, we are confident that he will harken to our prayers and compose the executive council without much delay. As partners in progress of Edo State, we are duty-bound to support and advise the governor when necessary and we do this with all sincerity of purpose and passion” he added.
