Betsy Obaseki, the wife of Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, has defended her husband by declaring that the crisis rocking the state is a fight between “light ans darkness”
Mrs Obaseki made this known when she was decorated as patron of the Nigerian Girls Guides Association (NGGA) in Benin City the state capital over the weekend.
She also advised women to mentor other women for the betterment of rhe society and not get drawn into any battle.
Her words: “All of these must change and that is why we arehere. We will get more women to join the movement. We will use the Girls Guide to imbibe the spirit of excellence.
“Darkness can never overcome light. Light has come to stay and will continue to prevail. This light is not about any personality.
“They are fighting for the soul of Edo State. In this state, we must do good; we must destroy evil and establish good things.
“God brought us at a time the state needs serious deliverance. What is going on is a fight between light and darkness. Light will always cause darkness to flee; light has come to stay. It will come to prevail and Edo will move ahead.”
