Embattled Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has said God would not forgive him if he risked the lives of residents of the state in the name of politics.

He added that he has never been desperate for a second term but the people of the state would return him to the Government House due to his numerous achievements in his first term.

The governor is currently enmeshed in a superiority battled with his erstwhile godfather and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Backed by the National Working Committee (NWC), Oshiomhole has insisted on direct primary option to select the party’s candidate for governorship in the state, in what is believed to be aimed at muscling Obaseki out of the race.

However, the governor has promised to ensure that the people of the state are not put in harm’s way despite the political turmoil.
