Oshiomhole should inform me before visiting Edo, says Obaseki

Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki on Sunday said courtesy demanded that the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole should notify him whenever he intended to visit home.

The former governor, who was in Benin at the weekend for a funeral, was booed at the airport by youths.

His convoy was pelted with water sachets because security barred the youths from getting close.

The road to Oshiomhole’s residence was also barricaded with two trucks, one of which was set ablaze.

It was gathered that the barricade was to prevent any political meetings from holding in the house.

Security was later tightened around the house to forestall late night attacks.

Obaseki, who addressed reporters about the airport incident, said Oshiomhole should have informed the government of his visit

He spoke as former President Goodluck Jonathan paid him a courtesy visit on Sunday.

Obaseki said Oshiomhole should take a cue from that.

He said: “It is really sad that someone who has been governor of the state is visiting the state and does not realise that courtesy demands he should inform the incumbent governor or other government apparatus of his visit.

“He doesn’t inform the chief executive who is in charge of his security when he is in the state.

“As someone who has served the country, courtesy demands that you inform the governor of the state that you are coming and if you have time during the visit, you can pay him a courtesy call.
