A video footage has surfaced online showing the Aide-de-Camp to Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, collapsing during the governor’s second-term inauguration at the Tennis Court of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City, the state capital on Thursday.
The incident happened around 12 noon while the governor gave an appreciation speech after the Oath of Office was administered by the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Esther Edigin.
The well-kitted ADC, whose name was yet to be confirmed as of the time of filing this report, stood behind the governor during the speech but slumped while Obaseki appreciated members of the Peoples Democratic Party for “covering us with the umbrella when we were abandoned in political wilderness.”
About four other aides around the governor attended to the ADC as Obaseki ended his about 20-minute speech.
