Special adviser to Edo state governor on media and communication strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been having sleepless nights after being confronted with the achievements of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Osagie said facts about the role Godwin Obaseki played in the establishment of the Edo Modular Refinery, which is nearing completion in Ologbo area of the state is now staring the APC in its face.
He made the comments in a statement sent to journalists on Sunday, August 23.
His words: “After last week’s visit of a federal government delegation to the Edo Modular Refinery in Ologbo, the APC is now clearly confused as their campaign seems to have been deflated by the stellar performance of Governor Obaseki and the near-total acceptance Obaseki enjoys from Edo people.
“Truth will continue to dwarf and ultimately blot out falsehood and propaganda, as the Ologbo visit by the federal government delegation has just done to APC’s efforts at misinforming the public.”
Just last week, the presidency sent emissaries to Ologbo in Ikpoba Okha local government area of the south-south state to inspect the Edo Refinery project.
The delegation expressed their satisfaction with the progress of the project and showered encomiums on the governor.
During the visit, the seed investment of N700 million which Edo state government made to kick-off this project was also highlighted by the federal team.
“For every lie of the APC, we have documented facts which are available to members of the public and the relevant government agencies,” Osagie added.
