That Governor Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole of Edo State sacked one of his closest associates, Abdul Oroh as Commissioner for Commerce and Industry few days ago came as a shock to millions of Edo State people. Be that as it may, we can tell you for free why the governor fired him. Those at the corridors of power in Benin City, Edo State disclosed to us that the sacked commissioner has been having issues with the governor for some time now.
They added that the commissioner is of no political value to the government of Edo State in his constituency and with the governorship election few months away, the governor needed people who can deliver votes to the APC in their constituencies. However, it is interesting to know that Abdul Oroh and Governor Oshiomhole have come a long way together in the struggle for democracy in Nigeria. They have been together since their days as activists. But the governor put sentiments aside and kicked him out of his government.
