Governor Godwin Obaseki has reacted to the alleged report by the vice-chairman of the national campaign council on communications and publicity for the Edo Governorship elections, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon.
Naija News recalls that Obahiaagbon accused the Governor of harassing members of the APC serving in elected offices over their refusal to defect to PDP.
However, in a reaction to the development , the media aide governor, Crusoe Osagie, said his boss has no reason to harass anyone. Osagie also claimed that PDP in Edo ran out of membership cards a few days ago, over the unprecedented demands for the cards by thousands of Obaseki’s supporters, who he said were coming into the PDP family from the APC and other parties.
Meanwhile, in another developing story at the National Assembly, The Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Professor Kemebrandikumo Pondei and other top officials on Thursday walked out of the venue of an investigative hearing being held by the House of Representatives in Abuja.
Pondei, who led members of the Interim Management Committee of the commission to the hearing, demanded that the Chairman, Mr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, steps down as he had also been accused of various “crimes” against the commission.
