Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, at the weekend replied the ‘mosquito buzz’ comment made by the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole had recently likened the political situation in the state to that of a buzzing mosquito around the ear.
He said: “The test of leadership is when a mosquito is blowing your ear, if you keep quiet nobody will hear and if you shout mosquito, mosquito everybody will hear…may we not be provoked by it.”
Obaseki, who spoke at the Edo Women Summit as part of activities marking his third year in office said: “They say we are mosquito but we will show them mosquito can cause malaria. If you are not careful, malaria will kill you.”
Obaseki stated that with his administration’s investment in the education sector, Edo would not produce another generation of “agberos.”
He noted that his administration has opened up the political space that people do not need to be mobilised to attend political rallies, adding that the sectors his administration has made tremendous progress were headed by women.
His words: “Edo belongs to all of us and not a few individuals. Edo is on the move and more things are coming.The fight we have been fighting about stable electricity will be won by next year.”
