The Deputy Governor of Edo State, Dr. Pius Odubu, on Monday, debunked allegation that he sponsored native doctors to kill his boss Governor Adams Oshiomhole, saying that the allegation was being fuelled by mischief-makers and blackmailers who were bent on destroying his cordial relationship with his boss.
Meanwhile, Odubu has also raised the alarm over alleged plots by some persons to circulate fliers round Benin City with a view to further destroy his image and further fuel crisis between him and Oshiomhole. In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Odubu said that “as a practicing Catholic Dr. Odubu will not do anything that is unbecoming of a true Christian in the name of politics.
God knows that he has never had any pact with any witch/native doctor to kill anyone or avenge for him and he will never condescend to that extent as long as God lives. It is against his faith. “The Bible teaches that even when the innocent suffers and mischief makers and traducers appear to triumph, by their chief blackmail, it is for God alone to avenge. “The Deputy Governor will by the special Grace of God, continue to disappoint those who are bent on driving a wedge between him and the Comrade Governor.
It is his nature and character to be loyal to those who God has set over him because they are His instruments. “At times like this, blackmailers are at their best but the Deputy Governor has decided to take solace in God who knows the hearts of men, trusting and believing as always that God will vindicate the just. He wishes to reiterate that he has no rift with the Comrade Governor whom he reveres and deeply appreciates”, it stated.
