“I have come to believe that Pastor Osagie government will be good for the people. With Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, Ewatto has a future. I will reserve further comment till the day off rejoicing – Onojie of Ewatto said.
Recently, the Onojie of Ewatto rejected an offer of a Prado Jeep dangled at him by the outgoing government of Edo State for him to endorse the APC candidate, Godwin Obaseki in the forthcoming Edo 2016 gubernatorial election.
Responding to an emissary from the APC to his palace, the none-compromising monarch advised the APC government in the state to rather use the money for buying of the Jeeps to settle the arrears of suffering local government council workers and pensioners.
“Keep your Prado Jeep. I don’t need it. Go and pay local government workers and pensioners. They are suffering” Onojie of Ewatto said.
