The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has been accused by the Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Godwin Obaseki, of rendering 12 State House of Assembly members-elect jobless.
The Edo State Governor stated this at a rally in Adolor Ward 4 in Ovia North East Local Government Area of the State on Wednesday.
Obaseki noted that the former Governor of Edo State deceived the members-elect not to present themselves for the inauguration of the 7th Assembly.
He further stated that Oshiomhole also deceived two others members whose seats had been declared vacant thereby denying the representation of their constituents.
Governor Obaseki noted that the members-elect have have betrayed their constituents after the House was proclaimed on June 17, 2019 by not showing up for swearing-in.
The PDP Governorship candidate noted that they failed to do necessary documentation as part of the conditions for their inauguration as members of the Assembly.
Obaseki said: “The godfather is deceptive. He deceived the 14-Lawmakers-elect and today, they do not have jobs.”
“They know that they cannot win the election. They are relying on violence. We will not allow them”.
