When I saw these pictures in the press I was disappointed at both the footballer and the governor for the disrespect they both showed the office of the governor and the people of Edo state.
When visiting the seat of government, you attend in your Sunday best to show respect to that office.
A Chinese based footballer visited the governor and the governor accepted to be shown with him in his office, wearing distressed jeans, a t-shirt and trainers.
If he had turned up in his professional uniform, that will be something but to wear what he wore to state house, is the height of foolishness.
For the governor to accept to meet and be pictured with such a person evidence a man who has no idea of what his office represents. This was not a private visit otherwise they would have met in Godwin Obaseki’s private residence.
Below is David Beckham visiting Buckingham Palace in his Sunday best. That’s class and respect to the government and people of the UK.
