“You must always notify me before visiting Edo,” Obaseki warns Oshiomhole

Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC), national president Adams Oshiomhole, to always inform him when he plans to visit the state.


The former governor, who was in Benin for a funeral weekend, was booed at the airport by young people.

According to The Nation, hiis convoy was pelted with water sachets because security prevented young people from getting close.

The road to Oshiomhole’s home was also barricaded with two trucks, one of which was on fire.

It was collected that the barricade was to prevent political meetings from taking place in the house.

Later the security around the house was tightened to prevent late night attacks.

Obaseki, who spoke to reporters about the airport incident, said Oshiomhole should have informed the government about his visit.

He spoke when former President Goodluck Jonathan paid him a courteous visit on Sunday.

Obaseki said that Oshiomhole should take a sign of that.

He said: “It is really sad that someone who has been the governor of the state visits the state and does not realize that courtesy requires that he inform the incumbent governor or other government apparatus of his visit.

“He does not inform the chief executive responsible for his safety when he is in the state.”

“If someone who has served the country requires courtesy that you inform the governor of the state that you are coming and if you have time during the visit, you can call him a courtesy.

“It is really sad and unfortunate that people who have served the state and who should know better behave as they do, with impunity and lawlessness.

“The former president is just giving courtesy. This is someone who has served the country at the highest level. “

The Oshiomhole spokesperson, Simon Ebegbulem, could not be reached for comments.

Dr. Jonathan praised Obaseki for providing goal-oriented leadership in the state and urged him to continue his development developments.

He said the visit was a token of courtesy to the governor.

“Traditionally, as someone who has a president or senior political position, you have to make a courtesy call to the Chief Executive; even if you are free or not, you must at least inform him. “

The former president judged the Obaseki-led government and said the governor was tirelessly transforming the state.

The former president said he was in Edo State to express appreciation to the founder of Igbinedion University, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion, for granting him an honorary doctorate last November
