Edo Task Force demolishes Ogbemudia’s house

On September 9, 2011 

BENIN CITY – FRESH crisis is brewing between Edo State Government and two-time Governor of old Bendel State, Dr Samuel Ogbemudia, following the demolition of the building of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, leader by the state Task Force Committee on Illegal Structures, yesterday.
The taskforce had on Monday, demolished one of the property of the former Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Rowland Owie in Benin City.

The building, situated on Siluko Road, Benin City contains two blocks of eight flats. The daughter of the PDP leader and former Commissioner for Education in the state, Ms Uyi Ogbemudia, said the building had valid approval from the state government, adding that “is why I am still wondering why they destroyed it.

She said: “The building belongs to my mother. They tried similar thing two years ago and after that, they came to apologise and now you can see what has happened. This is unfair and that is why I believe it was politically-motivated. When you measure the land, you will see that a grave mistake had been made.

“I met them destroying it and I told them that what they were doing was wrong but they told me to go and inform them at Government House as they came to execute their job. This is very wrong in Benin land and that is why I am still scared. I don’t know what the state is turning into.”

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
