Demolition of houses in GRA, Benin: APC, PDP bicker

The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are currently in war of words over the demolition of the Government Reservation Area (GRA), Benin houses of three chieftains of the opposition party in the state.

The PDP Publicity Secretary, Chris Nehikhare fired the first salvo when he accused APC leaders of mindless, reckless and absurd allocation and conversion of government property and assets to private use by the administration of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, who later became the National Chairman of the party (APC).

In a sharp reaction, the Publicity Secretary of APC in the state, Chris Azebamwa accused the state governor, Godwin Obaseki of double standard and vindictiveness, especially for approving the demolished buildings and plots’ Certificates of Occupancy (C of Os), as Chairman of the Economic Team in Oshiomhole’s government for almost eight years.

Bulldozer, accompanied by soldiers, riot policemen and personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) earlier in the week, demolished the house of Edo’s immediate past deputy governor, Dr. Pius Odubu, a frontline leader of APC, near Government House, Benin.
