The All Progressives Congress has said the appointment of Special Advisers and Senior Special Advisers by Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, would not help the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
In a statement made by the Assistant State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Ofure Osehobo, titled, ‘Obaseki’s uninspiring and unnecessary appointments,’ the party stated that the hype over the appointment of SAs and SSAs was unnecessary in the face of expended civil service and lack of teachers in public schools.
The statement read in part, “The government has turned governance into a toy and is busy appointing SSAs and SAs in the name of harmonizing his destabilized party, the PDP. We say this will not help his party.”
“APC is utterly disappointed that rather than employing qualified personnel to fill the thousands of vacant spaces in the state public service and the many public schools across the state, the cry is about uninspiring appointments that do not convey any sense of hope or purposeful governance for the state under the PDP government.
“It is a misplacement of priorities, a complete waste of time and a failed design to deceive the very enlightened Edo people.
“Furthermore, the excessive list of appointments, designed to compensate political jobbers, sycophants and opportunists has further exposed Governor Obaseki and PDP’s insensitivity and disdain for Edo people, as it does not in any way reflect their hope and eagerness for a greater Edo State.
“And by the appointments, the government has left no one in doubt that they have no vision to make our state great again.
“If indeed, Governor Obaseki and the PDP mean well for Edo people and are interested in making the State great again, like they claimed, they would have prioritized the employment of badly needed civil servants and teachers.”
