The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has been sworn-in for a second term in office.
Obaseki was sworn-in at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, the state capital, on Thursday.
The relatively low-key event took a surprising twist when an Aide-de-Camp to the Edo State Governor collapsed during the inauguration ceremony.
The incident happened around 12 noon while the governor gave an appreciation speech after the Oath of Office was administered by the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Esther Edigin.
The well-kitted ADC stood behind the governor during the speech but slumped while Obaseki appreciated members of the Peoples Democratic Party for “covering us with the umbrella when we were abandoned in political wilderness.”
About four other aides around the governor attended to the ADC as Obaseki ended his about 20-minute speech.
