Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, says the crisis rocking the state’s House of Assembly is because of his refusal to spend public funds on some private individuals who claimed they brought him into power.
But the governor pointed out that at least 300,000 Edo citizens voted him into power and if he took care of them everybody would benefit.
Speaking with a Benin delegation in Abuja, Obaseki said: “The only thing they have said is that I refused to share money; I am not taking care of the people who brought me into office.
“I said 300,000 Edo people voted for me to be governor; if I do for the people, everybody will benefit.”
The governor earlier pointed out that the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole was not interested in the peace of the state.
