Edo government cautions, vows to probe Oshiomhole, budget minister
Edo State government, yesterday, warned the Minister of State for Budget, Mr. Clem Agba, to leave the revered Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin out of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s political battles against Governor Godwin Obaseki and others across the nation.
Special Adviser to Obaseki on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, in a statement, said Agba, being a major beneficiary of the unnecessary battles being fought by Oshiomhole across the country, which made APC to lose about six states to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), should not drag the Benin monarch into the embarrassment that shall soon befall both himself and Oshiomhole.
He said Agba, who was Commissioner of Environment, when the Edo Water Storm masterplan was conceived, is fully aware that there are many questions yet to be answered over the project; hence his jittery effort to seek royal cover from the king.
He said: ‘For the records, the Benin Water Storm masterplan is not abandoned, but Agba and Oshiomhole certainly have questions to answer over the project and at the right time, they shall be invited.
“Fortunately, ministers and national chairmen of political parties do not enjoy immunity from investigation and litigation, so they should get ready to face the people and the authorities…”
