Stop De-Marketing PDP, Orbih Admonishes Obaseki, Phillip.
I have observed with trepidation, the frosty relations between the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and his Deputy, Comrade Philip Shaibu and I am constrained to call on both parties to exercise restraint in what to say or do in the course of this ongoing needless and endless crisis.
To my surprise, official letters, which should be confidential, are now dominating the social media space. I urge both parties to stop further hostilities and resolve their differences quietly in the interest of good governance and progress of the state. Anything less may affect the image and fortunes of the Party in the coming Guber election.
Yes, we have had issues in the past between party and government, but we haven’t allowed them to be subject to newspaper editorials.
PDP is a strong brand in Edo State – a brand that has been nurtured over the years by the commitment of leaders and dedicated members of the party. This brand is now under serious threat by the current raging battle between the Governor and Deputy-Governor.
I therefore seize this opportunity to call on both parties to ‘cease fire’ and resolve their differences amicably.
God bless PDP. God bless Edo State.
