The leadership of Edo State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has accused the Governor – elect, Mr. Godwin Obaseki of evading court services by going into hiding since the party filed petition at the State Election Petitions Tribunal challenging the outcome of the September 28 Governorship poll.
The party also slammed the ruling party for allegedly shutting down its state party secretariat out of reach and placing barred on security agents and officials of the party from coming to office .
But in a swift reaction, Executive Director on Publicity to the state Governor, John Mayaki described the allegation as not only fabricated but lacking in merit
“The Governor-elect was not under the control of the court, to have known that the PDP had filed her petition which makes their allegation patently false. Also, how does the PDP expect Godwin Obaseki to know that legal summons or notices will arrive his home or office?
“The PDP knows what to do – we are not aware they have filed case, besides we are not to help them do their job. I urge the PDP to do their best and make sure they serve all the parties involved to enable them prepare their reply.”
“Godwin Obaseki is a man whose addresses – both home and office are not unknown. He has no dog at home to unleash or one that will jump on anybody who attempts service on him. I urge the PDP to freely knock at his door and do the needful”
