Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has replied the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who said voters should not vote for him in the September 19 Governorship Election in the State.

Obaseki in a statement issued on Tuesday by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, called on the people of Edo State to disregard all of Tinubu’s accusations which he claimed are false.

Obaseki said the broadcast is a quest by Tinubu to extend his Political dominance to the State and said that Edo people are not ready and determined to end the godfatherism in the state.

The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to a television broadcast in which a former Lagos State Governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in his quest to extend his political dominance and empire to Edo State, decided to take over the role of Edo people to choose through the ballot who to govern them for the next four years.

“It has become obvious that the spirited fight which Edo people have put up against godfatherism has sent tremors beyond the shores of Edo to the likes of Tinubu, who has for years sustained a stranglehold on Lagos and other states in South-Western Nigeria, hence this desperate, last-ditch effort to rescue the unproductive political instrument, now popularly referred to as godfatherism, with which he has feathered his nest and built his political empire at the expense of the people.

“Tinubu knows clearly that come September 19, when godfatherism would have been dismantled in Edo State, the people of Lagos may just have found the recipe and formula for removing the chokehold placed on their collective destinies for decades by Tinubu hence the inciting television broadcast.”

Obaseki described the allegation that he prevented the inauguration of lawmakers in the state as false.

“We call on all Edo people, friends of Nigeria and all lovers of democracy to disregard all the comments by Tinubu, as the allegations about the Edo State House of Assembly and other claims in the broadcast are completely false,” the statement concluded.
