Nigeria: PDP Raps Edo Govt Over Flooding
Edo State chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Dan Orbih, declared at the weekend that the state government was clueless in tackling flooding and other development challenges in the state.
Chief Orbih also accused the state government of inadequate preparation against the dreaded Ebola virus, pointing out that Edo was one of the few states of the federation to have a designated centre for the control of the Ebola disease.
Chief Orbih who made these accusation at Igueben, headquarters of Igueben Local Government Area of the state when he welcomed defectors from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP also accused the government of making life difficult for many in the state through oppressive policies and levies.
“From the formal to the informal sector, the stories are all the same. Today, the indoor sports hall and pitch of the Samuel Ogbemudia is usually flooded anytime it rains. As for the swimming pool, it is more like a pond where, toads and lizards now flourish.”
