APC reacts as youths vandalize Ize-Iyamu’s billboards, accuses Obaseki

The Edo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress,APC, has unequivocally censured the supposed vandalism of its open air bulletins and crusade banners by the Edo State Government, criticizing the move as 'an unfortunate heightening of maltreatment of office and dismissal for the law' by the Obaseki-drove government. 

In a question and answer session today in Benin City by the Vice Chairman on Media and Publicity of the APC National Campaign Council, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon, the APC affirmed that the Edo State Government set out on the annihilation and expulsion of its bulletins at different key focuses in the capital city of Benin on Thursday, sixteenth of July, 2020. 

Hon. Obahiagbon denounced occupant Governor, Godwin Obaseki of warming up the commonwealth in front of the surveys with 'wild and provocative remarks, media shakedown, and criminal activities of narrow mindedness including the mass pulverization of rival's crusade materials.' 

He stated: 'This heartbreaking and criminal activity took off on Thursday, the sixteenth of July 2020, when the Edo State Government explicitly guided one Mr. Dave Giwa Amu who is strutting himself as the Managing Director of the Edo State Signage and Advertising Agency to start the quick expulsion and obliteration of our bulletins." 

"It is appropriate to take note of that these outside bulletins and without a doubt other crusade materials were properly paid for, planned and raised in full consistence with every single legitimate prerequisite." 

"Moreover, the Edo State Signage and Advertising Agency, purportedly drove by the supposed Mr. Dave Giwa Amu, an acknowledged supporter of the occupant Governor, Godwin Obaseki, is an organization that is yet to get the consent of the Edo House of Assembly." 

"Generally, this office, starting today, is obscure to the laws of Edo State and is obviously being weaponized by the State Government, an invested individual in the political race, to give itself an illicit, uncalled for, unscrupulous, deceitful preferred position as we approach the surveys." 

Hon. Obahiagbon portrayed the supposed move of the Edo State Government as a new low and revealed that the gathering, APC, has since sent a request to the Commissioner of Police and INEC in light of the fact that it is persuaded that the "demonstration of narrow mindedness, did without any potential repercussions, hints what the Edo State Government has coming up for the Edo voters and its supporters in the September 19 political decision." 

In a similar vein, the Chairman of the State Media Campaign Council's Sub-Committee on Outdoor Advert, Hon Chris Azebamwan, said the demonstration was very despicable for a legislature that marches itself as humanized, driven by request and etiquette.
