Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State will be commissioning a police barrack at the back of his ranch and a police post besides the mother’s house this afternoon, respectively. The governor’s mother’s house is adjacent to the governor’s ranch. The Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase will be on hand for the commissioning.
Inside sources who didn’t want their names in print revealed that governor Oshiomhole built fortresses around himself because of his numerous unkept promises to the people to develop every part of Edo the state.
“Oshiomhole should have led by example, like his acclaimed role model, Pa Michael Imoudu who neither mass up police men around himself but had the people as his foot soldiers”, one of them said.
They lamented that the governor only develop a part of the senatorial district, Edo North: that is, Etsakor, East, Central and West local governments areas and left out Owan West, East and Akoko-Edo out of his development templates.
They chided the governor for not making any attempt to fixing any reasonable road in Edo Central which suffers the most in the entire stretch of nearly eight years of his administration.
Further more, they indicted the governor as an ethnic bigot who paid political appointees from his part of the state different salaries to the ones who are not from his Etsakor conclave. One of them, said “Once you find your name on the Iyamho salary list you thank your God, if you are not, God help you”.
The list of names of political appointees printed out from government bureaucracy show that more than 75 percent of political appointees under governor Oshiomhole administration are all from the three local governments of Etsakor East, Central and West.
In the last seven-plus years, governor has made more enemies than friends or turned his enemies to friends or vice versa. This is manifest from the way Edo people have rejected his anointed candidate, Mr. Godwin Obaseki in the forth coming September 10th governorship election.
