Betsy Obaseki, wife of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state, has said that the campaign against human trafficking is a fight for the soul of Edo state.

The governor's wife spoke in Benin, Edo state, where she was decorated as the patron of the Nigeria Girls Guide Association.

She blamed the death of the association in the state and other similar notable institutions for the rise of the illegal trafficking in Edo state over the years.

Recall that there was a previous report in which the governor's wife was quoted as saying that the crisis in Edo state is a fight between light and darkness.

This was denied by the chief press secretary to Mrs Obaseki, Peter Okonkwo, saying that the above was what Mrs Obaseki actually said.

Legit.ng gathers that Mrs Obaseki urged the new inductees to mentor all the women they come across in life and bring them into the fight against human trafficking.

She said that the fight against human trafficking is not negotiable as it is a fight for the soul of Edo state between light and darkness and that as darkness cannot overcome light, so also will the efforts of the state against human trafficking prevail.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Edo state governor Godwin Obaseki said the crisis rocking the state House of Assembly was because he refused to share public funds with some self-styled godfathers.

The governor, addressing a Benin delegation that visited his Abuja home, said the crisis that trailed the inauguration of the state assembly was largely based on the fact that some people, who claimed to have brought him to power wanted to administer the state government affairs.

He, however, vowed that Edo would not be allowed to ''be a pawn in anybody’s political chess game".
