Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has faulted claims made by the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in a televised broadcast on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the APC Chieftain urged the citizens and residents of Edo State not to vote for Obaseki as he is a dictator adding that they should go out and vote en-masse for Ize-Iyamu.

Reacting to the broadcast, Obaseki expressed that Tinubu cannot extend his political empire to Edo State, noting that Edo people were determined to end godfatherism in the state.

Obaseki said this in a press statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie.

In the statement, Obaseki also denied the allegation that he prevented the inauguration of lawmakers in the state, describing it as “false


  1. Just what I wanted to say is what has been said here
    How and why should Tinubu come all the way from Lagos to Edo to start telling the people in Edo who to vote and who to reject
    I don’t think it is right. In as much as I am not supporting any of the candidates, whether PDP..o or APC, I am of the opinion that Tinubu has no power or moral right to tell the Edo people who to vote in

  2. A lot of people say that people can’t change. I think they’re wrong. My theory is: People can change. It’s just easier for them not to.if only you can bring change to edo.

  3. Can you imagine Tinubu all the way from Lagos wants to control Edo people, What is Tinubu’s business in Edo governorship election? cant he leave Edo people to vote for their favourite candidate. If APC didn’t rig this election Obaseki will be the winner because Edo people loves him so much

  4. Tinubu is over doing things. He thinks he can poison the mind of the people in Edo state just like he did in Lagos?
    All he wants his puppets, people he can dictate to and control like dogs.
    Godwin Obaseki for Edo state
