Edo Guber: I Have Done Well God And The People Of Edo Will Return Me, Says Gov Obaseki
The governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, has declared that nothing can stop his second term in office adding that he deserves to return to office having performed creditably.
According to Obaseki, the second term would help him consolidate on his current achievements in office.
The governor currently in a running battle with his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, reportedly declared: “Second term for me is not negotiable.”
Vanguard reports that Obaseki said this when he received members of the Benin Unity League (BUL) at the Government House in Benin on Thursday, October 3.
“I have said it clearly and I told my cabinet yesterday that second term for me is non-negotiable.
According to the governor, am demanding it because I deserve it and I think I have earned it. We need to have it so we can continue what we are doing today,” the governor said maintaining no single individual can determine who governs the state.
“I want to assure you that, this is a fight that we will prevail. We will fight and succeed,” he said while noting that God and the people of the state would make him return to office.
Oshiomhole challenged Obaseki while speaking to some journalists in Abuja at the weekend.
