Obaseki has denied receiving the congratulatory letter from Oshiomhole
Obaseki has denied receiving the congratulatory letter from Oshiomhole and Ize Iyamu because it was sent on social media not sent directly to him.
EDO State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has denied receiving the congratulatory letters written by the duo of former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, and the candidate of the APC in the last Edo State governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Obaseki, while speaking to his supporters along Ring Road, Benin, yesterday the 1st of June, 2021, said a sincere congratulatory message ought to have been written directly to him rather than shared on social media.
He added that, if the authors were serious, they would have “printed the written messages on their letterhead papers with their signatures on them, rather than posting it on the internet.”
According to him, Edo would never fall for such ‘cheap messages’ hidden behind congratulatory letters.
He added, “The APC in Abuja is being run just like what they did in Edo when they were in power.”
He further said, “It is clear that there is a problem in Nigeria. The country has money but until we change our mindset that taxpayers’ money must be used for the people and not for very few, the country will continue to wallow in crises.
“We have to pray that what happened in Edo will not happen in Abuja. The only party that has the right people for the job is the People’s Democratic Party, in 2023. Forward ever, backward never, Edo must move forward,” he added.
Regarding what the Supreme Court victory meant to him and the people of Edo State, Obaseki said, “For us in Edo, this victory means freedom and emancipation; it means that we must rededicate ourselves to our people because democracy is all about the people.
“Democracy is not about an individual or godfather. We have defeated the godfather finally in Edo in our quest to take Edo to where it should be.”
Meanwhile, Edo South Senatorial district of the PDP in a written document , said that it has a lot of confidence in Governor Obaseki’s ability to pilot the affairs of the state under the umbrella of the PDP.
