Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has accused APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of All Progressive Congress, of relying on thugs and violence to win elections.
The former governor has never won quality votes, he claims.
Obaseki said this through his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, in a statement made available to ONIF TV on Monday in response to Oshiomhole’s earlier statement where he said he did not teach the governor and his deputy, Phillip Shuaibu how to lose elections.
The statement said Oshiomhole was only working hard to cover up his immense desire to be Edo State’s supreme godfather and usurp the will of most ordinary Edo citizens.
“In the name of winning units and ward elections, even his allegory of politics being like a forest with dangerous animals is a poor excuse for continuing to perpetuate thuggery and keeping the collective heritage under the control of a few greedy and violent people.
“Good governance remains the surest path towards winning elections especially when you are committed to free and fair and credible elections devoid of the kind of violence witnessed in recent elections in the country.
“So instead of trying to pacify the violent and the lawless just because you want to win elections, Oshiomhole should support the stellar performance being displayed by Governor Godwin Obaseki in Edo State, that way, he will not need the services of his thugs to win the next election.”
