Edo state Governor, Godwin Obaseki has berated his predecessor in office and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole for failing to observe protocol whenever he visits the state.
Obaseki,who spoke when he hosted former President Goodluck Jonathan, at the Government House in Benin city on Sunday, wondered why Oshiomhole would deliberately refuse to follow protocol.
“He (Jonathan) is just extending the courtesy, as the President, someone who has served the country in the highest level and you heard what he said.
“There is a courtesy when you are going to visit a state, you want to inform the person in charge of the state that you are coming and when you have time during a visit, you can now pay him a courtesy call.
“Unlike the unfortunate incident, we have been having in Edo State. It is really sad where somebody who had been the Governor of a state visiting the state and does not realize that courtesy demands that he should inform the governor or the governor apparatus of his visit and the chief executive in charge of his security when he is in the state.
“It is really sad and unfortunate that people who have served, who should know better decided to behave the way they do or behave with impunity and other sense of lawlessness” the governor said.
Jonathan had visited the family of Chief Gabriel Igbinedion before he stopped by at the government House.
