Human rights activist, lawyer and journalist, Barrister Osa A.U. Director yesterday described as illogical and propaganda taken too far by the APC, claims that the PDP candidate, Pastor Osaige Ize-Iyamu had promised to declare a public holiday for the Esama of Benin if elected.
Director in a statement made available to Vanguard said it was illogical for Ize-Iyamu to promise to do so even when Lucky Igbinendion as governor could not do same for his father.
“It is now obvious that the coming governorship election in Edo State has occasioned a situation of great moral crises. And truth is usually the first casualty in any condition and state of moral crisis. If Chief Lucky Nosakhare Igbinedion, who is the heir apparent to the Igbinedion dynasty could not declare a state public holiday for his father while he was governor for eight years in Edo State, is it Osagie, the son of the late Esoghan of Benin kingdom that will now come and do such?
“Obviously, these kinds of twisted logic are the desperate last fits of a political dinosaur that has since lost the confidence of Edo people, yet unwilling to embrace the reality. Certainly, that reality will dawn on the potentate emperor.”
