BREAKING: Edo APC Gives Osarodion Ogie Ultimatum To Resign As SSG

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Edo State, seriously frowns at the continuation of Mr. Osarodion Ogie as Secretary to the Edo State Government, while at the same time posing as the running mate to the purported governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Asue Ighodaro, in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.

The action of Mr. Ogie is patently unacceptable and an affront to the good people of Edo State. As an unelected public officer, Mr Ogie is given an ultimatum to resign from government forthwith as his continuing stay in office is a clear violation of all known rules of decency and ethics.

By remaining in office, while posing as running mate in the gubernatorial election, Mr. Ogie is also in violation of the public service rules which prohibit a public servant from using public resources to fund private purpose.

Mr Ogie is currently earning salary and other official benefits as Secretary to the State Government, even while pursuing a private ambition to become deputy governor.

He’s using official vehicles and other government logistics to service his electioneering campaign. This is totally unacceptable and a waste of taxpayers’ money. This is the very definition of corruption. No unelected public servant should be allowed to do this. It’s patently wrong and a deservice to the state and the long suffering people of Edo State.

The APC, Edo State therefore issues an ultimatum to Mr. Osarodion Ogie to resign as the Secretary to Edo State Government forthwith, failing which serious civil and criminal actions will be taken against him for dissipating and misusing the lean resources of Edo State, for his private election campaign.

Mr. Jarrett Tenebe
State Chairman
