Obaseki Blows Hot

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has bared his mind on the forthcoming governorship election in the state.

He said; “I am upbeat about the forthcoming governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC).”

“I have presented my Expression of Interest Forms to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.”

“I visited the president to formally inform him and solicit his support. The president was welcoming when I showed him my forms.”

“He looked through it and teased me that he will not have to go through this again, he wished me good luck and assured me his support.”

“The APC crisis in the state is not from Edo but from outside. The person I am contesting against, Ize-Iyamu is not in Edo, he is in Abuja.”

“Oshiomhole took his current position because he is not properly guided. I will continue to pursue peace for the sake and interest of Edo people.”

“I am doing my best to try and make it warm just for the sake of Edo people. Whatever it will take to have peace, whatever it will take not to lose lives in Edo, I am committed to.”

“I have the endorsement of APC Governors. All of them have decided and agreed that when you have an incumbent governor particularly if he is doing well, they should run around and support him. It is a common practice all over the world”.
