The Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Olusegun Bamgbose, has called on the former National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, to start packing his luggage to leave Edo State if the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, wins the September 19 election.
The Lagos based lawyer believes the governorship election is between Oshiomhole and his former political godson, Obaseki.
Bamgbose further claimed that, given the big guns and the big wigs involved, the election will go down in history as the toughest in Edo State’s entire history.
Recognizing that the former governor and some of the APC’s bigwigs would do whatever they can to win the race, the Lagos-based lawyer observed that if Ize-Iyamu fails to win it will spell doom for Oshiomhole.
“This is one election that Oshiomhole won’t want to lose. It’s a do or die affair for him. It’s an election that will either make him or mar him for life.”
“His (Oshiomhole) political career is attached to this volatile election. If he ‘loses’, it will mark the end of his political dynasty. Oshiomhole will certainly not take things for granted.”
“Tinubu equally will do anything possible for Obaseki to lose to Pastor Ize Iyamu. The Edo election is no doubt a litmus test for Tinubu’s presidential ambition.”
“If the APC Governorship Candidate loses, his Presidential ambition will be jeopardized. On the other hand, Obaseki will not for any reason want to lose the election, as incumbent Governor.”
“He will be ready to do anything within his political capacity to put Oshiomhole to big shame. The truth of the matter is that the Edo Election is between Obaseki and Oshiomhole.”
“However If Ize Iyamu loses to Obaseki, Oshiomhole should get prepared to relocate from Edo State immediately.”
“Edo will be hell to him if Ize-Iyamu loses to Obaseki. The die is cast. The battle line is drawn. Who will win is no doubt a one million naira question,” he stated.
