2 Min Read

Edo state Governor, Godwin Obaseki has expressed his confidence in winning the second term election despite the speculated rift with his political godfather, Adams Oshiomhole.

Speaking at  Channels TV, Sunrise Daily programme on Wednesday May 27, Obaseki stated that no one was capable of stopping his victory at the forthcoming Edo gubernatorial poll.

He said:

“I am not a violent person. But I am confident that the way I got into power is the same way I will return.

“God gave me power. If he wants me to return I will continue. No man can stop me. Power comes from God.”

Obaseki vehemently denied claims that his election victory may not come to fruition due to “inadequate” resources.

 “I have friends with resources. I worked for eight years behind the scene before I became governor.

“So all that insinuations about using somebody’s resources…I became Governor on the platform of the party and I am grateful for it.

“It does not matter whether it is direct or indirect (primaries), I will win.”

However, appealing for Peace, the governor sounded a note of warning to those who had intentions of causing bloodshed to intimidate the electorate.

 “We have always canvassed for peace. What are the issues in Edo and what are the issues that cannot be resolved in a democracy. Our concern is to use the resources of the people to develop the state.

“This shouldn’t lead to bloodshed. We will not accept to be cowed and intimidated because some people think that they can manipulate rules and cut corners.”

This is coming on the heels of the emergence of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the consensus aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC). There are speculations that Ize-Iyamu is the anointed candidate of APC National Leader, Adams Oshiomhole.
