Obaseki redeploys director of protocol

GOVERNOR Godwin Obaseki has ordered the redeployment of his Director of Protocol (DoP), Government House, Benin,  Aisagbon Osayande, to the Ministry of Culture and Diaspora Affairs.

He was replaced by Mosis Obakpolor of the same ministry.

The redeployment followed the July 25 embarrassment suffered by Obaseki and other Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) leaders, who came to Edo for the kick-off of the governor’s campaign.

They visited the Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, but the customary kolanut and gin, usually brought by guests for royal blessings, were not brought by Obaseki and his aides.

The PDP chieftains were embarrassed when the first-class monarch asked for kolanut and gin to offer prayers for the visitors to have a successful electioneering, but none was provided.
