BENIN—DEPUTY Governor of Edo State, Dr. Pius Odubu, yesterday, said he has no apology for being loyal to his boss, Governor Adams Oshiomhole, saying those against his loyalty were against the development of the state.
Odubu, who will clock 57 today, told newsmen that he had no reason to fight the governor, whom he described as God-sent to the people of the state, adding that those who accuse his boss of being a dictator were people whom the governor failed to meet their greedy request.
He was reacting to allegations by some All Progressives Congress, APC, leaders who recently joined Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Odubu said: “If I subscribe to a course, I go all the way to ensure that I succeed. I am even fortunate to work with Oshiomhole.
“Oshiomhole is not a dictator. Where you have a man or woman doing all that you expected, and perhaps more, do you fight such a person because you want to assert yourself?
“Let me use this opportunity to repeat this again: whatever policy decision that this government has made, whatever policy that we are implementing, it is the collective responsibility of the stakeholders of this government.”
