The Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki on Wednesday took a swipe at the godfathers in Nigerian politics for resisting change in governance structure and leadership style.
He said a few individuals at the top have denied most Nigerians their collective wealth.
Obaseki said this on Wednesday at the formal launch of Nigeria incentive – based risk sharing system for agricultural leading (NIRSAL) – Edo State government 2019 Agripreneur Project on Crop Production at Sobe in Owan West Local Government Area of Edo State.
The Governor admitted that “any attempt for anyone to remove them, they start fighting. And by the grace of God, they will not succeed. Thank God that President Muhammadu Buhari is a man of truth”.
He challenged the people of Edo State not to give up in the struggle to liberate the State from the grip of godfather.
According to him, “If you are not getting what you are supposed to get, please shout. Write me. I read all mails that come to me in Government House.
