The Edo State government has advised the Minister of State for Budget, Clem Agba, to leave the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, out of the current crisis involving the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomole.

A statement signed yesterday by the governor’s media aide, Crusoe Osagie, said Agba is a major beneficiary of the unnecessary battles being fought by Oshiomhole across the country which had made the APC to lose about six states to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to him, Agba should  not drag the Oba of Benin into the embarrassment that is soon to befall both himself and Oshiomole.

He said Agba, who was a Commissioner for Environment when the Edo Water Storm master plan was conceived, was fully aware that there were many questions yet to be answered on the project, hence his jittery effort to seek royal cover.

“For the records, the Benin Water Storm master plan is not abandoned but Agba and Oshiomole certainly have questions to answer on the project and at the right time they will be invited.

“Good enough, ministers and national chairmen of political parties do not enjoy any immunity from investigation and litigation so they should get ready to face the people and the authorities,” he said.
