STOP YOUR ELDERLY RASCALITY, OSHIOMHOLE WARNS IGBINEDION

Governor of Edo State South-south Nigeria, Comrade Adam Oshiomhole, Monday sounded a stern warning to Chief Gabriel; Igbinedion to tread softly, reminding him that he was not bigger than the law. He said if Igbinedion does notstop what he described as his “elderly rascality”, he will bring him to justice. The warning confirms t5he frosty relationship between the governor and the Benin high chief and father of former governor of the state, Chief Lucky Igbinedion. Speaking at the swearing in of newly elected chairmen of 14 councils of the state, Oshiomhole said: “there is evidence that he (Igbinedion) has undermined the prosperity of the state for a very long time,” adding that those who live in glass houses do not throw stones. “I want to send a warning to Chief Igbinedion that he should take it easy; he has acquired a lot of government land that the people have not engaged him on. He walks as if he is above the law. He was a chief tax collector in this state, pocketing 25 to 30 percent of every kobo that accrued to the state while his son was the governor. I have not looked back because my mandate is to look forward. “I want to put him on notice that if he continues with his elderly rascality, I will bring him to justice. He must never, ever underestimate the fact that I have the will and I have the capacity to deploy that will. If he crosses the law he will be cut to size. Elders must teach the younger ones to behave responsibly,” Oshiomhole said. Governor Oshiomhole had been close friends to the Igbinedions until recently when things fell apart
