“It will have to be famous that the Santana marketplace fireplace is one too many since Godwin Obaseki took place of business. The financial system of the state has been shaken to its core through those avoidable failures that razed stores and burnt up tens of millions of investments on the Uwelu Spare Portions Marketplace, Phil Hallmark Buying groceries mall, PZ Marketplace in Ikpoba-Okha LGA, Evbotubu Marketplace in Egor Native Govt and plenty of others.”

“Plainly, Obaseki cares little for the folks and is not concerned about public provider. In his bid to centralize energy, even at the price of the guideline of legislation, and pursuit of a 2nd time period regardless of a transparent report of failure, he has relegated governance to the background and the individuals are left to grapple in wide sunlight, looking for hope and succor.”
