Flashback; During Edo state Governorship campaign, Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), vowed to bury the political career of Adams Oshiomhole, Ex national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
GoldenNewsNg reports that Obaseki while speaking during one of his governorship election campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oredo local government area of the state, where he hails from, Obaseki said the September 19 election was a contest with Oshiomhole, not Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor had said the former APC chairman, his predecessor, would be “dealt with because he does not respect people of the state”.
“As a sitting governor, Oshiomhole decides to pick who will represent me in my house of assembly. Can you imagine the insult? That was where this fight started,” the governor had said.
“Because he believes, in his own mind, that Benin people are like chickens. When you throw corn, they will run after the corn.
“This election is a contest with Oshiomhole We have dealt with him at the national level, we will bury him politically in this election; because he has no regard for Benin people, he has no regard for us in Oredo, and we will show him that he is nothing.”
