Resolution Of Edo Assembly Crisis On Course, Obaseki

 

Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has said that he has met with his predecessor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and that efforts were being made to resolve issues created by third parties in the state, even as he added that there were no fundamental issues between them.

The governor disclosed this Monday in Benin during a mass held at the Holy Cross Cathedral Benin in honour of Chief John Odigie-Oyegun to mark his 80th birthday anniversary.

He said: “I thank you very much for the remarkable homily. I listened very attentively and I have taken every word in your remark to heart and very seriously. I want to assure you that we are in pursuit of peace and we will have peace in Edo State.

“We have met – my predecessor and I in office – and fortunately, we do not have any fundamental issues. And because we do not have any fundamental issues, I believe that whatever third parties are trying to propagate I am sure we can talk over it. I assure you that very soon things will return to normalcy in Edo State.”

He said the state government, in line with the spirit of Nigeria’s national anthem, will not forget the labour of past heroes, which he said, shall never be in vain.

“Today, we are here to celebrate our own Chief Odigie-Oyegun. On behalf of the people and Government of Edo State, I want to congratulate to you on your 80th birthday,” Obaseki said.

The governor announced that the state government has named the soon-to-be-completed Civil Service Training Centre after Chief Oyegun, for his contributions to the development of the state and the country at large.

“For your contributions and what you have done for our dear state, I have decided to name the public service academy, which is under construction, after you.

“We know your passion for public service; we know and acknowledge the contributions you made to public service in Nigeria.

“Therefore, we have decided to name this edifice which will be completed within the next 60 days, by the grace of God, after you. President Muhammadu Buhari will come and commission the academy, with you standing beside him. It will be known as the John Odigie-Oyegun Institute for Public Administration.”

The Institute, according to the governor, is on “three floors and is made up of large training rooms that will host 220 people. Two halls hold 118 people each.

There are seven training halls that will host 58 people each. There is a library, a sick bay, a cafeteria and 12 offices. This facility at any point in time can hold and train a minimum of 900 people. It will be the largest facility for training public servants in Nigeria.”
