The Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has distanced himself and his administration from statements in the social media, saying they are the handiwork of mischief markers.
This was contained in a press statement signed by the embattled Edo State governor in Benkn City today. The statement said the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party was already dealing with the issues involved.
Find below, a full text of the statement:
There has been a flurry of statements and comments on social media by mischief makers who are hiding under the pretext of the ongoing conversation between leaders within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stir crisis and cause disaffection.
These statements and irresponsible behaviour are outrightly condemned. We hereby distance ourselves from the actions of these detractors.
The National leadership of the party is already dealing with the issues and we are open to the harmonious resolution of whatever concerns that may arise.
*_Governor, Edo State_*
