The Edo State Government has accused the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole of ”spitting on the graves” of those who have died from COVID-1’9

In a statement on Friday, Osarodion Ogie, the Secretary to the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, slammed Oshiomhole for holding a political gathering amid the pandemic.

Ogie said the former Governor of the state was insensitive and his actions undermine the efforts of the government in fighting Coronavirus.

“It is most despicable of Comrade Oshiomhole to show such insensitivity by spitting on the graves of these people; endangering the lives of millions of Edo people and undermining the efforts of government at the state and national levels to halt the deadly campaign of this invisible enemy.

“Comrade Oshiomhole on Thursday, April 30, 2020, organized what some media outlets have come to term as ‘APC faction’s mock primaries’ in Benin City. The meeting was organised by a group of dissidents who make up the EPM with the active backing of Comrade Oshiomhole, who, it was reported, drew up a delegates list for the exercise,” part of the statement read.

The Edo government also flayed Oshiomhole for showing disregard for the health and safety of Edo people and Nigerians in general.
