Allegation that I sacked commissioners loyal to Odubu laughable —Oshiomhole

By Simon Ebegbulem

BENIN—GOVERNOR Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, yesterday, described as laughable, claims by some commissioners who were sacked by his administration, that they were being victimized due to their perceived support for the governorship ambition of the deputy governor of the state, Dr Pius Odubu.

Oshiomhole said that they were sacked for alleged betrayal of trust, which he described as sad, adding that rather than make public apologies, they have been carrying advertorials to rubbish his person.

He spoke while swearing in the new Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Prince Kaseem Afegbua and the member representing Orhiomwon Local Government Area on the  board of the Oil and Gas Commission, Mr Sunday Iyamu.

He said: “Even people who were involved in some offences, investigated and confirmed even by the deputy governor, when we removed them from office, instead of hiding their heads in shame, sponsored write ups that they were fired because they were supporting the deputy governor.”
