Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole at the inauguration of 14 newly elected local government chairmen in Benin, warned the Esama of Benin Chief Gabriel Igbinedion to stop his elderly rascality in the state or be brought to justice.
The visibly angry governor said “There is evidence that he (Igbinedion) has undermined the prosperity of the state for a very long time. Those who live in glass houses do not throw stones.
“I want to send a warning to Chief Igbinedion that he should take it easy; he has acquired a lot of government land that the people have not engaged him on. He walks as if he is above the law. He was a chief tax collector in this state, pocketing 25 to 30 per cent of every kobo that accrued while his son was the governor.
“I have not looked back because my mandate is to look forward. I want to put him on notice that if he continues with this elderly rascality, I will bring him to justice.
“He must never ever underestimate the fact that I have the will and I have the capacity to deploy that will; if he crosses the law, he will be cut to size.
The governor’s outburst was apparently in response to Chief Igbinedion’s actions on Saturday during the local government election in Okada.
