The governor was caught dozing off while President Buhari addressed world leaders in New York. Unflattering pictures of Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, have emerged on the internet as he was caught sleeping while President Muhammadu Buhari delivered a speech at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly.

After the photographs made waves on the internet on Tuesday, the governor’s office has responded to insinuations that his sleeping spell was caused by partying long into the night. In a statement signed by his media aide, Crusoe Osagie, the governor slept due to fatigue and exhaustion and not for reasons being peddled by “mischievous” people. “The disparagers have populated the internet with photographs of the governor when he momentarily succumbed to fatigue after a long flight, preceded by a chaotic itinerary in Edo State before heading to New York for the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, in the United States of America.

Osagie said the governor is not the first world leader that has succumbed to fatigue and has been photographed while sleeping at a public event. He also noted that the governor has never been portrayed to be a machine and is just as susceptible as all humans.]]>
