Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State on Saturday said he led his supporters out of the All Progressives Congress because of the party’s lawlessness.

Obaseki said this while addressing supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party in Benin during the flag-off of his reelection campaign.

The governor urged his supporters not to resort to violence no matter the level of provocation noting that supporters of the APC were trying to instigate violence to scare people from coming out to vote come September 19.

Obaseki said, “We left them because of their lawlessness. We will not, no matter how provoked resort to the same lawlessness. I want to thank you and assure you that God has given us victory.

“We understand that the opposition party has now resorted to violence, please we do not want bloodshed. One of their billionaires hired a lot of thugs today around the Obas palace and I hear they are busy destroying cars with PDP flag. Do not retaliate, God will retaliate for us

“Four years ago, I made a promise to you that we are going to transform Edo State, that Edo is the heartbeat of Nigeria, the transformation of Edo will lead to the transformation of Nigeria and by the grace of God, that is beginning to happen and it must happen in this election.”


Speaking about the PDP flag given to him and the Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, he said, “This mandate that has been given to us is simple, what you are saying as a party is we like what you have done in the last four years, please go back and continue and improve on what you have done.


“In the last four years, we put our people first. Nothing else matters more than our people even though that put us in trouble but we didn’t care because the voice of our people is the voice of God.

“Because we were working for our people, God almighty has supported us. That is why we are here today because what has happened to us in the politics of this country can best be described as miraculous.”


Earlier, Obaseki, who was accompanied by his counterparts, Ifeanyi Okowa (Delta), Aminu Tambuwal (Sokoto), and Nyesom Wike (Rivers) visited the palace of the Oba of Benin.


There were reports of skirmishes and vandalism outside the palace but security operatives were able to restore calm.

Kabaka celebrated 1billion in his account the other day with no known carrer.. That's how much Oshiomole empowered him...

All the thuggery in Edo needs to stop and we trust Obaseki to put an end to it.

He called his former party of 8 years a lawless party? No Honor amongst thieves, APC will show Obaseki & pdp how a lawless government in power operates come Election Day, if APC could win osun with all the might & wealth of the Adelekes, Edo is a piece of cake.

You live by the sword, you die by the sword, go ask Shogun, Obaseki is a nobody, the same people that made him Governor, have sent him packing, nothing can save Obaseki from going back to Afrinvest Lagos State this year.

APC and their usual propaganda, whooping up sentiment in order to garner sympathy from the public!

For all we know, they could be the one, breaking and destroying properties just to generate sympathy from Edo people

They know how to infiltrate people so well!

They tried it in 2015, many of us fell for it, look at where we are today undecided

Poverty headquarters

Multiple taxation

Inflation

Lack of empathy from the leaders

Bribery and corruption everywhere

Lack of social and infrastructural amenities

Only a Nigerian who have not learn from this terrible experience will fall for it again!!!

Oshiomhole has not spent up to 2 weeks in Edo and Obaseki has been runny about. I hope Obaseki doesn't run out of Edo to Abakaliki when Ganduje and co enter Edo.
Edo is not Lagos, Ambode was never booed.

It must be tough to be a politician.

Imagine Obaseki saying this publicly. Was he lawless when he was in APC? He has not even spent two months in PDP.

Obaseki should just look for something else to campaign with and stop insulting the intelligence of Nigerians.

There are just some things that he and Ize Iyamu should not bother to campaign with.

He should move his Afrinvest to Aba or Nkalagu. That is where the traitors who support him are based. He got small power and was shouting Edo is not Lagos. Ugly traitor with his face like his behavior.

Edo is not a problem. Oshiomhole and Obaseki are intact. Captain, Kabaka, Orbih are intact. Apc's assets inside Edo PDP are intact. When Obaseki loses in 2 months from now, he would be fighting his supporters.

I knew all along that the scripted incident was orchestrated by APC, same way they planned the Offa robbery to dent Saraki’s image.

Apc are like a village land grabber, who grab land from people without a plan to use it for anything.

I hope Edo people experienced half of the transformation your government has wrought!

you may wish not for lawlessness if sure you put security as the first priority in you forthcoming election and calling all your supporters to desist themselves from such evil acts. Do not forget that some of your supporters may carry out such evil act without you knowing or doing it with your knowledge but for you to deny.
