Edo 2020: Ganduje speaks again, warns Obaseki of election outcome
The Chairman, Edo Gubernatorial Campaign Council of All Progressives Congress (APC) and Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje says Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would be left in shock at the outcome of the September 19 polls.
According to a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar, Ganduje spoke on “Mid-Day news” on Television Continential (TVC) on Tuesday.
He assured that Obaseki would lose his re-election bid having “failed to deliver to his people”.
Ganduje said, “The art of governance is to provide social and economic development, infrastructural facilities, peace and stability. But all of these are lacking in Edo state under Mr Obaseki.
“What has he on ground to show to Edo people that he deserves re-election? He has 53 cases in courts and busy with in-fight with his people. Apart from all such litigations he then cross-carpeted to another party. And abandoned the governance of his people.”
He described the APC candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as a man of God who has the love of his people at heart.
“When he came to our party he came with all his people. But when governor Obaseki cross-carpeted to PDP he was followed only by his cabinet. Because his people didn’t see any reason why he should be followed,” Ganduje stated.
The campaign chairman assured that the APC would comply with all electoral laws and “in compliance with COVID-19 protocols” throughout the electoral process.
