Edo 2020: Why I visited Tinubu in Lagos – Obaseki

-

Thursday, June 4, 2020

The governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, has explained why he visited the national leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Obaseki also denied secretly obtaining the nomination and expression of interest forms of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Explaining why he visited Tinubu, Sahara Reporters reports that Vanguard quoted Obaseki to have said: “The reason why I went to see our national leader is that I do not want the party torn apart. I am a man of peace.”

Obaseki said he and his colleague governors on the platform of the APC cannot see their pay so weakened and will not take measures to rebuild it by suing for peace and harmony.

“That is why I joined my colleagues to go and see the leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to assure him that we are all working for the same cause, we are all working to build our party.

“From 26 states, we are now 20. We don’t want to lose any more state; there is no reason to. We should all drop our ego and work for our party and the unity of our country,” he said.

Meanwhile, as intrigues continue to play out in the politics of Edo state, the ploys being channelled to make Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu the flagbearer of the APC suffered a setback on Tuesday, June 2.

Loyalists, who belong to Adams Oshiomhole APC faction in Edo, have been reported to have backed down after more aspirants joined Governor Obaseki in picking nomination and expression of interest forms.

It would be recalled that the crisis buffeting Edo APC hit the crescendo following a spark in the feud between Obaseki and his former godfather Oshiomhole, with the former probing the latter of alleged white paper corruption.

Ize-Iyamu, who was recently given a waiver to contest by APC, seemed to be coasting in victories with the backing of the APC national chairman and other Edo political leaders.
