EDO-WOMEN-SOLIDARITY-PROTESTGovernor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State on Monday renewed his verbal onslaught on the Esama of Benin, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion, saying he is not afraid of telling the truth about the father of a former governor of the state, Lucky.

Oshiomhole vowed to publish activities of the former governor in office.

Lucky Igbinedion ruled Edo State from 1999 to 2007.

The governor spoke when thousands of women dressed in white attire marched through the streets of Benin City, the state capital, demanding an apology from Chief Igbinedion to the people of the state.

The women carried placards with inscriptions such as – “Esama leave Oshiomhole alone”, “Chief Igbinedion stop using youths and women to cause trouble”, “Edo people must move forward”, “Enemies of Edo People, leave Oshiomhole alone”, “Oshiomhole, Edo people are proud of you” and “Igbinedion, go and pay Land Use charge”.

Recall that some women from across the state, under the aegis of Concerned Edo Women, last Tuesday, protested to the Emotan shrine about Oshiomhole’s verbal missiles on the Esama and the governor’s policies.

The women, who covered the lower parts their bodies in red attire known as “Ododo” but left the upper parts bare, brandished various placards with inscriptions such as “Oshiomhole, you are always insulting your elders”, “Go and Beg for Forgiveness”, and “Nemesis will catch up with You”.

But Monday’s protests, which saw the women drawn from the three senatorial districts in the state converge on Benin City, declared their support for Gov. Oshiomhole, who they said had brought infrastructural development to the riverine areas.

“We have seen your good work. We came to tell you not to be afraid. We heard what people are saying but we are behind you. Nothing will happen to you”, they stated.

In his response, the governor said he would be ashamed to talk in public if two of his children were convicted for corruption and money laundering in veiled reference to the Esama’s children – Lucky and Michael.
