Edo Govt Dispels Creation Of Cattle Colonies Report, Blasts PDP




Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki

The Edo state government on Monday dismissed reports that Governor Godwin Obaseki has approved the establishment of cattle colonies in the state.

The state government refuted the statements credited to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying the report was fabricated and concocted and that the government had not acceded to creation of cattle colonies.

The statement said, “The claim is the PDP’s concoction, fabrication, and the aim of the dying party, peopled by rogues and bandits, is to attempt to smear the rising profile and image of the Obaseki administration.

“PDP’s resort to outright falsehood as a tactic for redeeming its irredeemable image, demonstrates the party’s lack of capacity to engage in intellectual and ideological contestations. Only a hopeless party like the PDP tells such barefaced, blatant and brazen lies because it has no issues to bring to the table.”

“The security challenges we face today in Nigeria’s North East region originated with the PDP. Every educated Nigerian knows that the nation’s security apparatus are controlled by the federal government and it will amount to sheer mischief to blame Governor Obaseki for the nation’s security challenges.

It added that the state government was doing everything possible to ensure protection of lives and properties of its citizens.

“The Edo State Government is working assiduously to attend to all the needs of Edo people and residents in the state including the protection of lives and properties and will not be distracted by the false and bogus claims of the bandits who ruined Edo State when they were in power.

“No amount of misinformation by the ailing PDP will sway Edo people and residents in the state, who witnessed the criminal activities of the PDP while the party was in power. Edo people are very intelligent who can sense a lie from a distance.

“The PDP lacks the credibility to speak on any issue in Edo State. Rogues and looters cannot suddenly turn advocates of good governance. PDP cannot give what it does not have,” it said.
