The former National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC),Adams Oshiomhole, has once again criticised the scorecard of performance of the incumbent Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki.
According to the Oshiomhole who is was also a labour leader, Obaseki has failed the edo people and Nigerians because he keeps signing memorandum of Understanding and launching project he never had intention to execute .
Speaking further on the atrocities committed by the governor of Edo state after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, Oshiomhole said Obaseki, deceived the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to lay the foundation for a “phantom industrial park” in Benin, the state capital.
He got Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to do the groundbreaking for an industrial park where he claimed that many Chinese and Singaporeans were anxious to relocate factories and create 300,000 jobs. Now, that place has become what we can call kidnappers track because people rob and go into the bush. There is nothing going on there. Not that the progress is slow, absolutely nothing is going on there. All the promises he made on TV where he signed different agreements with people, none of them is in progress.”
Naija news recalls that in November 2017, Osinbajo laid the foundation of the park at Iyanomo community in the state capital.
Osagie Ehanire, who was then minister of state for health; the oba of Benin and even Oshiomhole were among the dignitaries at the event.
