Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State seems ready for war with his political godfathers in the state and he is now shooting from the hip-top.
He said; “I have said it clearly and I told my cabinet members that the second term for me is non-negotiable. I am demanding it because I deserve it and I think I have earned it. We need to have it so that we can continue what we are doing today.”
“I want to assure you that this is a fight in which we will prevail. We will fight and succeed. If anybody thinks I will back out, he must be day-dreaming because it is not my fight; it is a fight for the right purpose. I am not going to back off because I know victory is sure.”
“Nobody can accuse me of implementing a wrong policy, the accusations against me are that I am not focusing on stomach infrastructure.”
“We earn less today than we did in 2016 when we came into power, so where is the money to waste? We know how much we inherited as debt; we have to service them. Some people sit and say we should focus on stomach infrastructure. I said no, that I will rather focus on mental infrastructure.”
