Former lawmaker and a member representing Oredo constituency in the lower chamber of the National Assembly, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon, has been appointed by Edo State governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as Chief of Staff.
His appointment was announced on Wednesday evening and he will be officially sworn in by 10am on Thursday morning at the Edo State government house.
The Law Graduate of University of Benin is as self-styled verbal contortionist who enjoys a cult following.
Ask Obahiagbon about himself and he would simply tell you: “I want to give you homo sapiens a infinitesimal sample of how the ingredients compose to form me. Anyone care to know? Most yes and a few imbeciles who lack compassion and common sense to get inspired.
“Since it’s most yes, I’ll navigate you through my journey. I grew up in Benin, but was born and had my elementary education in Sapele. When my father went for further studies in England, we had to relocate to Benin and that got me into Edo College and St. John Bosco Government School, Ubiaja. I proceeded to read law at the University of Benin. After my youth service, I contested an election to represent my ward as a councilor in Oredo Local Government Area in 1990. After, I went to England in search of greener pastures, but I could not take it for more than 18 months.
“This was because I had a passion for the political developments going on in Nigeria. I died silently in London, but returned to Nigeria , where I joined again in the political development. Six months after my arrival, there was a local government election and I contested for the chairmanship position Long story short, after a few losses. I won an election to the Edo State House of Assembly, where I spent eight years on the platform of my people and it was time to move to a latitudinarian pedestal to discharge service to Nigerians and I presented myself before my party in a hotly, fiercely, but democratically contested primary and it pleased the cosmic masters and my constituents to give me the mandate to fly the party flag and I won. That began my journey to the House of Representatives.”
