Edo 2020: Trouble sets in as Obaseki blasts Tinubu

Governor Godwin Obaseki, a candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who is longing for second term has said that the former Lagos State Governor and a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu cannot extend his political empire to Edo State as the people of the state are determined to end the godfatherism in the state.

The governor through a statement released on Tuesday by his media aide, Crusoe Osagie, said, “Our attention has been drawn to a television broadcast in which a former Lagos State Governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in his quest to extend his political dominance and empire to Edo State, decided to take over the role of Edo people to choose through the ballot who to govern them for the next four years.”

The statement also read: “It has become obvious that the spirited fight which Edo people have put up against godfatherism has sent tremors beyond the shores of Edo to the likes of Tinubu, who has for years sustained a stranglehold on Lagos and other states in South Western Nigeria, hence this desperate, last ditch effort to rescue the unproductive political instrument, now popularly referred to as godfatherism, with which he has feathered his nest and built his political empire at the expense of the people.”

“Tinubu knows clearly that come September 19, when godfatherism would have been dismantled in Edo State, the people of Lagos may just have found the recipe and formula for removing the chokehold placed on their collective destinies for decades by Tinubu, hence the inciting television broadcast,” the statement read.
