Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has warned those he describes as Abuja politicians to steer clear from the state House of Assembly.

Obaseki made the warning on Thursday during a rally organised by several solidarity groups in the state in his honour.

The rally follows reports of the National Assembly planning to take over the state legislative complex, a move that didn’t augur well with him.

But addressing the huge crowd in Benin, the state capital, the governor said the people were ready and waiting for individuals mobilising outside forces to seize the Assembly.

“I want to leave you with these words that those people who are parading themselves, speaking on the internet and everywhere for themselves and their pockets, Edo people are watching you.

“For those of you who have gone outside to Abuja to say that people from outside should go and invade Edo, to come and seize our House of Assembly, we are waiting for you,” he said.

The stern looking Obaseki regretted why some politicians would want to tense the atmosphere of the state.

He recalled that Kogi and Bayelsa elections coming up in November have not been as tensed as Edo, stressing that his administration Is not perturbed at all owing to the people’s support it enjoys.

Speaking further, the governor decried a situation whereby some people that joined in the democratic struggles for the building of the All Progressives Congress in the state would renege.

“This struggle started 12 years ago in this town. The struggle has not ended, the struggle has just entered gear 2. For those of you who are old enough, what we are going through today, we went through 10 years ago.

“The same thing, nothing has changed. It’s just unfortunate that some people who were with us when we started that struggle, today we do not know what has happened to them. But it is a struggle we will win because it is a struggle that says that the people must lead.

“Democracy is about the people. And so whatever we are doing as a government is for you because we have not started, this is just the beginning. All the plans that we have in place by the grace of God will come to fruition,” he said. (Channels TV)
