An officer of the Edo State Traffic Management Agency(EDSTMA) Mr Monday Ogiegor has tendered his resignation letter to the management board for lack of responsibility by the the Edo State governor, Gov Godwin Obaseki.
“I write to withdraw my services from the Edo State Traffic Management Agency(EDSTMA); and by extension, the government of Edo state. Having carefully x-rayed the direction and foregoing of the Edo state government, I have come to the inevitable conclusion that the government of Godwin Obaseki is headed for irreparable disaster.”
“The government that we worked so hard to enthrone in 2016 has deviated from every known progressive and democratic principles and has instead unleashed terror, oppression, brutal force and incessant torture on our party men and women who worked gallantly in installing the government of Godwin Obaseki. My conscience continues to prick me each time I remember that I am part of a government that has continued to witch hunt and ridicule my fellow party men and women unabated. This is certainly not the route I envisaged for myself in the later future. Totalitarianism, dictatorial tendencies, oppressiveness, anti democratization and concomitant dehumanization are what reign supreme in Obaseki’s government. Having said this, I have come barefaced with the painful decision to bow out from this government. I thank the State government for the opportunity given to me to serve in such capacity that I found myself and I wish them well in their future endeavours.”
“God bless Edo state, God bless the Federal republic of Nigeria.”
