A former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo, Charles Airhavbere, has blamed Governor Godwin Obaseki for the crisis in the state.
Airhiavbere states this on Sunday when he addressed journalists. He said Obaseki’s inability to deliver on campaign promises and lack of leadership skills are the cause of the problems in the state and the party.
“It was never about godfather and god-son struggling for the control of government or resources of the state.
“It is all about ensuring governance with human face and our resolve is to check the destructive approach to governance in Edo State and put our party on the path of moral rectitude, transparency and inclusion.
“The struggle is all about a governor who lacks interpersonal relationship skill; who is vindictive and repelled by the presence of his party members and without provocation, resorts to anger and pugnacious display of raw power,’’ Airhiavbere said.
“This is a governor who believes in all ramifications that he is above the people and who has suddenly become a tyrant.
“We cannot fold our arms and watch helplessly. With these traits, it is obvious the governor was never psychologically and emotionally prepared to be a leader” he added.
