Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Tuesday, September 15 2020, advised the people of Edo State to reject the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Godwin Obaseki.
Bola Tinubu disclosed this in a sponsored television broadcast appealing that Obaseki does not deserve any Democratic ballot paper and the votes of the people of Edo State.
While speaking on his fight alongside many others to gain democracy for Nigeria, the APC Chieftain said, “I, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, want to appeal as a committed democrat, and the leader of all democrats regardless of our political parties, to our conscience and commitment to democracy today on the forthcoming election in Edo state.
“I want to appeal to you to reject Godwin Obaseki in this coming election. I have suffered with many others to bring about this democratic regime, that today, we are enjoying in the country.
“Then, Godwin Obaseki didn’t participate in any aspect of the struggle to enshrine democracy in the country.
“Therefore, he could not understand the value and the pains associated with this democratic struggle”.
However, former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, seems to have a different thought as he counseled the Edo people to vote wisely and vote for Obaseki who is contesting against the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
He said, “I urge all duly registered voters of conscience and who truly care about the wellbeing of Edo to turn out enmasse to cast and defend their vote for Governor Obaseki”.
