Psalm 51:10 reads,

“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me”

Bitterness is never good for anyone. Giving our hearts over to bitterness means that we have resisted the promptings of the Holy Spirit. The Lord will reveal the sinfulness of bitterness in our hearts and compel us towards seeking His healing and forgiveness.

There is outrage in Benin City over the revocation of a famous school property belonging to the family of Kehinde Garrick who was one of the directors in the APC gubernatorial campaign of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu. The said property is more like a signature when it comes to big events in the ancient city of Benin. The school sits on a very massive plot in the central area of the City.

It is a common sight for the school to entertain multiple events at the same venue and the school is renowned for hosting huge crusades by famous evangelists across the world.

Located along Ekehuan road.

Edo residents received the news with deep misgivings and have expressed their opinions on why Godwin Obaseki should let bygones be bygones. According to residents, “we are all one united Edo family and electoral matters should not create deep resentment amongst brothers and sisters”.

Here is a compilation of comments monitored on different social media platforms pleading with Obaseki to focus on governance and let go of his grievances with his political opponents.

” Of what good is it when we refuse to tell ourselves the truth? what benefits is the revocation of oppositional members property is to serve the benefit of the State? Why deprive families of income because of electoral bitterness? Edo State governor should please let bygones be bygones and focus on governing our state.”-Godfrey

“How many peoples property is the State Govt going to revoke before we accept the fact that Obaseki has won the elections one year after? These grievances are too much and should not be encouraged at all by any well-meaning Nigerians, what precedence are we setting for ourselves in politics? It, therefore, means that politicians would be sacred of owning or investing in their own state because of the game of politics. Oshiomhole that brought in Obaseki never revoked Ize-Iyamu’s property because he wanted to make Obaseki the governor so why now?-Osas

“Edo people please let us plead with our amiable Governor to soft-pedal on his political adversaries, this is becoming more like a school gang war where fraternities fight their rivals to the point of death. Imagine what the Garrick family would be going through? A property that collectively belongs to a big family that shares from the little proceeds it generates. Imagine the bad blood and infighting that would occur in the family because a member caused the revocation just because he worked for the opposition party in the last elections. Please let us move on”- Timothy.

Recall the State Government revoked hectares of land housing Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s farms. Also, some other APC chieftains saw their houses demolished and taken over by the State Government.
