Comrade Adams Oshiomhole Edo State Governor in veiled reference to what Chief Anenih said at Ewhohinmi rally of the PDP three weeks ago, said Chief Anenih failed as Minister of Works as he could not fix the Lagos Benin express and the Auchi-Okenne-Abuja express road. An elated Oshiomhole who displayed several dancing steps described the rally as the final burial rites of the god fathers in Edo politics and the PDP and took a swipe at Chief Anenih who, he said, had enslaved the people of the state for long. He condemned in totality the submission of some people he described as sycophants who normally call Anthony Anenih ''Mr. Fix it'', saying Anenih was a failure total failure to humanity.
His words: “at their Ewohimi rally the god father (Anenih) said I do not know politics and that labour is different from governance. But today we have found out who knows the politics. Three weeks ago, I was watching on television, and I saw the god father merely looking for children. He went to the village to run his mouth. On that occasion he said that Oshiomhole would soon know that there is a difference between Labour and governance and the man who was speaking had the opportunity of being a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with a mandate to fix our roads. They call him Mr. Fix-it but he could not fix Lagos Benin road. He could not fix the roads in Uromi where he comes from. He could not fix water for his people.
''He could not fix water for Uromi people. You call him Mr. Fix-it; he could not fix the dual carriage way from Abuja that ends in Kogi State. He could not extend the dual carriage way to his own state. They call him Mr. Fix and he could fix his family in PDP. And I now, said to him, how come that he is a Professor of governance”. “I am proud to say that less than one year we have restored the principles of democracy and open participation. We have demonstrated that in a democracy it is the people that matters. And I do not have two gods I have only one God...''
