Edo state govt reacts to trending photos of Governor Obaseki sleeping


The government of Edo State has reacted to pictures showing Governor Godwin Obaseki sleeping during the United Nation’s conference in New York.

The pictures are alleged to have been taken while President Muhammadu Buhari was delivering his speech at the conference.

According to a statement signed by the special adviser to the governor on media and communication strategy, Crusoe Osagie, the governor was experiencing exhaustion and fatigue which all humans are susceptible to.

“Our attention has been drawn to a mischievous campaign designed to smear the image of the Edo State Governor, Mr. Obaseki.

“The disparagers have populated the internet with photographs of the governor when he momentarily succumbed to fatigue after a long flight, preceded by a chaotic itinerary in Edo State before heading to New York for the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, in the United States of America.

“The idle hands and mischievous minds behind the smear campaign against governor Obaseki are clearly not people to be taken seriously.”
