We Don’t Steal Dollars in Edo – Obaseki Fires Back at Ganduje
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has fired at the Governor of Kano, Abdulahhi Ganduje who called him a failure saying, there are no dollars to stuff in his babariga in Edo State.
Ganduje who is the chairman of the national campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for the September 19, Governorship election in Edo State, called Obaseki a failure and said his failures will make it easy for APC to win the election.
In his response, issued through his spokesperson, Crusoe Osagie, Governor Obaseki said his Kano State counterpart did not have the moral standing to assess his performance in office because of the baggage of a viral video where he (Ganduje) was seen stuffing dollars collected from contractors.

Obaseki said unlike Ganduje, he has been delivering sustainable projects to the people of Edo State.
The statement released by the Edo State Governor read;
“The comment by Governor Ganduje on the performance of Governor Obaseki in office is at best laughable. It is also disgraceful because the APC has apparently misconstrued the meaning of performance because it is verifiable that Governor Obaseki’s unprecedented performance across different sectors of the state is what has endeared him to Edo people. No amount of lame talk from the APC and their campaign handlers can erase these projects which litter the nooks and crannies of Edo State.
“Ganduje is in no position to assess Governor Obaseki or any other governor for that matter because he has a baggage hanging on his neck, which he needs to clear. It is important to put some of the government’s projects in perspective so that the public can judge.
“The Obaseki-led government through different memoranda of understanding (MoU) have completed or is at the verge of completing the following projects: the 6000bpd Edo Modular Refinery in Ologbo, Benin City; 55MW Ossiomo Independent Power Plant, in Ologbo, Benin City; the 1451-unit Emotan Garden Estate; strengthened broadband infrastructure with 400km fibre optic cables laid by Main One, among others.”
“Workers and pensioners in the state are happy with Obaseki because he has kept faith with paying their salaries and pensions, while investors keep trooping in because of the transparent and efficient land management”.
