Following the recent train attack in Edo State which led to the abduction of staff and passengers, the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken a swipe at Governor Godwin Obaseki.
In a statement released by its publicity secretary, Peter Igbinigie, the party stated that the Governor receives huge sums of money as security votes from the Federal government and wonders what he does with it.
Part of the statement reads:
”It is saddening to experience this especially when we are still basking in the euphoria of the new year. However, this smack of the lack in the security apparatus in Edo State as been expected of the Chief Security Officer: Governor Godwin Obaseki.
We have severally demanded that the Governor should explain to Edo people, what he does with the humongous security vote he receives from the Federal Government monthly.
We are also not unaware that the Governor receives not less than ₦800m monthly to tackle insecurity in Edo State monthly.”
