Chairman of human rights group, One Love Foundation, Chief Patrick Osagie Eholor has threatened to sue the Edo State Governor, over the latter’s refusal to appoint commissioners in the state.
He also said the Edo State House of Assembly is, as well as the governor has a case to answer for hastily reading, and passing a bill into Law under 12 hours, in order to sack the Governing Council of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma.
Eholor, who goes by the aliases of Ultimate Equals, and Democracy Observer-General respectively, expressed disgust in a social media message Tuesday, following the quick succession of first, second and third readings of a bill by a few members of the Edo State House of Assembly.
The human rights activist wondered if there were no competent hands in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), or the All Progressives Congress (APC), Governor Obaseki’s former party who were qualified enough to be made commissioners in the face of the many issues ravaging the state.
