Wife of the Edo State Governor, Betsy Obaseki, has likened national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole to “darkness”.
The Edo State first lady rose to the defence of her husband, Godwin, on Sunday, in the political crisis rocking the state.
According to her, the political crisis is “a fight between light and darkness”.
Speaking in Benin, the Edo State capital, when she was decorated as patron of the Nigerian Girls Guilds Association (NGGA), Mrs. Obaseki said light must continue to prevail in the state.
Her words: “Darkness can never overcome the light. Light has come to stay and will continue to prevail. This light is not about any personality.
“They are fighting for the soul of Edo State. In this state, we must do good; we must destroy evil and establish good things.
“God brought us at a time the state needs serious deliverance. What is going on in a fight between light and darkness? Light will always cause darkness to flee; light has come to stay. It will come to prevail and Edo will move ahead.
“All of these must change and that is why we are here. We will get more women to join the movement. We will use the Girls Guide to imbibe the spirit of excellence.”
The Commissioner of NGGA, Mrs Enebeli-Upkor Mary said the group has the mandate to build the moral upbringing of girls to make them relevant to society.
