Orbih commented on Governor Oshiomhole’s plan to replace himself with another stranger as the governor on the state. He said Oshiomhole was a stranger in the state and would be leaving hardship and huge debt burden on Edo state when he leaves. Orbih added that the PDP government in Edo state will do their bit to neutralize Governor Oshiomhole’s plans.
A former commissioner for Lands and Survey under Oshiomhole, Donald Boi Osikena, also disclosed that he resigned from office because his responsibilities as commissioner were usurped by the governor. Osikena, who had also defected to the PDP sometime last year, said:
“My ministry was being run from the government house. Approvals for lands and certificate of occupancy were being issued from government house without informing me. I reasoned that I didn’t want to go to jail early in life, so I left.”
Meanwhile, a man of God, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has also made his point clear about the future governorship of the state. He urged the people of Afemai not to fret, and that they would not lose anything after Governor Oshiomhole hands over in November 2016. The public is also not quiet, with regards to this defection. Some are lashing out on APC for being liars and not being the angel they made the world to believe. Some others say PDP is a lesser devil but then, people who defect from one party to another are selfish sets of political prostitutes, who lack morals and have nothing to offer the public.
