Tinubu reacts to Edo House of Assembly crisis, slams Obaseki

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has blamed Governor Godwin Obaseki for the latest crisis in the Edo state House of Assembly.

In a statement on Friday, Tinubu said under recent developments in Edo under Governor Obaseki has reminded us of the worst of the happenings under the military era in Nigeria.

The statement partly reads;

"The recent actions of the Governor of Edo State represent the gravest possible assault on constitutional democracy and the rule of law and escalation of violence and tension in the state he purports to govern.

"Not satisfied with making a mockery of our constitution by blocking the timely inauguration of two-thirds of the elected members of the Edo State House of Assembly, Governor Obaseki has now resorted to the strong-arm tactics of dictators. 
 
"First, he sponsors hoodlums to deface, indeed destroy, parts of the House of Assembly Building in Benin, feigning the building is undergoing renovation. Then, he imports sand and gravels to prevent access to the assembly complex.

" In effect, the man has spent state funds to thwart the very apparatus of the state government he was sworn to uphold. He has squandered public money to defeat the very will of the public. This is tragic beyond words."
