The All Progressive Congress, APC Edo state said on Wednesday that Mr Godwin Obaseki has abandoned his duties as the Governor of Edo state.

Rt Hon Patrick Obahiagbon, National Vice-chairman of the APC National Campaign Council who stated this in Benin City said the government of the state was now on autopilot.

This he said is because the outgoing governor has turned his attention, full-time, on how to subvert the September 19th elections, "through rigging, intimidation, arm-twisting, unbriddled threats, violence, and other anti democratic underhand tactics".

Mr. Obaseki, besides threats to APC members now spends time placating the members of his divided party, the PDP, who have since turned him into an an ATM machine, said Mr. Obahiagbon.

He added that what we now have are " reports of conflicts over the illegal sharing of State resources, turbo charged comments encouraging the youths to embrace violence, and mass resignations which have bespattered the government".

Mr Obahiagbon lamented that as a result, the government has been unable to respond to the flood alert warning with Edo state at high risk from National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Edo State is among the highly probable flood-risk states based on the predictions of Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) and the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA).

The APC reminded Mr Obaseki that there was still a lot to do such as how he intends to return Edo children safely to school, especially those in their penultimate year of study.

The party told the Governor that the College of Agriculture, lguoriakhi, which he closed down still remained closed like the Tayo Akpata University of education, Ekiadolor and the State School of Nursing, Benin City.

On the Benin technical college, the party said, with a budget of about ten million naira per class room, it, ‘ is still yet to be completed even though this project is UBEC funded with the federal government already paying its sixty percent counterpart contribution’.#
