Despite the harsh criticisms that Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole received when he told a widow to “go and die”, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has backed the ‘unguarded’ statement, saying that the governor was only being serious with his work.
The Interim National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Lai Mohammed, while reacting to the statement said Oshiomole was only doing his job as the governor of the state.
Speaking on Channels television last Saturday, the APC chieftain said:
“Running a state is not about popularity but about doing the right thing. In doing so, you are probably going to step on certain toes,” adding that those in government sometimes take harsh decisions and should not be prosecuted for such.
When asked if there was any justification for the governor’s comments, Mohammed said:
“No, I am just saying that in some circumstances, you take decisions which are very unpleasant.”
