Edo PDP accuses Obaseki of frustrating leaders’ bail
The leadership of Edo State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the state governor, Dr. Godwin Obaseki, of frustrating the efforts of its chairman, Collins Orbih and 2016 governorship candidate, Pastor Osaze Iyamu to fulfill their bail conditions.
In a statement by its state publicity secretary, Chris Osa Nehikhare, PDP disclosed that since 8 am yesterday, the state government refused to sign all documents for the bail, stressing that the governor was exploiting political differences to pursue vendetta against the opposition leaders.
“Acting on the instructions of Governor Godwin Obaseki, all the documents relating to the verification were locked up in Hon. Evboumwan’s office. This obvious action to deny us justice is malicious; an infantile and irresponsible political vendetta.
“We condemn Edo State government’s decision to play politics with people’s rights. We assure all our party members that our leaders in this unjust captivity are in good spirits and urge everyone to remain steadfast and committed to the just course of mobilising to vote out APC in the next coming elections,” the statement added.
The party said it was obvious that the ruling party does not want to do the needful, remarking that they decided to sign only the documents relating to Chief Lucky Imasuen, because of his current membership of APC. “Lucky Imasuen has insisted that his own cannot be separated from the rest of those charged with him,” the statement said, insisting that APC should fight corruption instead of opposition.
