A CROSS OF CONCERN YOUTHS

Some youths in Edo State on have threatened to retire godfathers in the State Chapter of All Progressives Congress.

The Coordinator of the concerned Edo youths, Mr. Kelly Okungbowa, said this on Tuesday at the State Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalist.

He said the protest in solidarity of the governor and admitted that alleged gang up against the governor’s second term bid
by unnamed godfathers in the State, prompted the solidarity rally.

The rally was tagged “enemies of the Edo people”.

Recall that some leaders of APC had accused the State governor of running the government like a sole administrator.

According to him, “As you all are aware, few weeks ago, some enemies of the Edos ganged up together in their numbers and said some threatening words against the governor. They sang songs. Some of us heared them on social Media and in the print Media.

He stressed that this prudence and accountability does not go down well with some persons, hence they are against his second term bid. He added that these people he called dubious politicians want money to be shared among themselves, which according to him the governor does not condole.

“Before now, many of them were using the tax payers money to enrich themselves by building mansions, hotels and factories, and none of them, their workers or followers benefitted from them. They want it to continue in this Obaseki regime and the man said no.

“And before now, the Agbero as popularly called, the IGR they were giving to Edo State government used to be N1million but I am glad to announce to you that today Edo State government is getting over N200 million IGR monthly. So, they want us to back to go back to where we are coming from. We say bye bye to Eygpt.

He pleaded to journalists to help spread the good works of the governor and not to let those against the governor’s second term bid prevail, saying, “We are here this hour to ask you people to save us because we know journalists are the best friends of the common people and that is why we are here this afternoon.”
