APC chieftain in Edo, Gen. Charles Airhiavbere, has come out to say that a faction of APC is not happy with Governor Godwin Obaseki because the governor has failed to listen to the voice of reason.
Speaking in a recent interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Benin, Airhiavbere, an ex-soldier turned politician, said Obaseki does not have the interpersonal skills required to make the difference in the glorified office.
The party member added that Obaseki is now using raw power in dealing with his political associates.
His words, “APC would never know peace in Edo with the way Obasekiis relating with party members.”
“It was never about godfather and godson 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.”
“He has failed to fulfill his electoral promises”
“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 that the governor was never psychologically and emotionally prepared to be a leader.”
“Edo is the only APC state in the South-South and we are not ready to lose the state,”
