Adams Oshiomhole, former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has accused governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki of disrespecting the Oba of Benin.
Oshiomhole made the allegation on Arise TV on Tuesday.
The former Edo governor said Obaseki did not only disrespect the esteemed Benin palace, but also the tradition of the Benin Kingdom, by wearing a cap when he led other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors to the oba’s palace last week.
“You call yourself a Bini man, yet you came to Bini palace wearing a cap in company of other PDP governors,” Oshiomhole said.
Obaseki had led a group of visiting PDP governors to the Benin monarch, before proceeding to the Sam Ogbemudia Stadium to launch his campaign for a second term.
