Obaseki Alleges Plot To Intimidate, Arrest PDP Members by Le124(m): 10:47pm On Jul 31
Peter David, Benin

The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has accused the leadership of the All Progressives Congress in the state of planning violence and importing arms to intimidate and harass his supporters as the September 19, 2020 governorship election draws near.

The governor said this while receiving Muslim leaders at the Government House, in Benin City.
Obaseki, who is running on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, expressed his readiness to stand with the people, defend their interests, and develop the state.

He said, “I am not afraid of any man but God. I know the gang up is to provoke me and my supporters but we will not fall for their tricks as God will help us.

“As I speak to you now, you can’t imagine that Police from Abuja are already in the state and have been paid to arrest our supporters. They have been paid by a billionaire to arrest Peoples Democratic Party supporters in the state. This billionaire sponsored the attacks on me and other PDP governors at the Palace. This is to tell you the level of corruption and impunity we face.

“They are planning violence, bringing arms, intimidating our supporters as part of their strategy. They know that if we have a free and fair election, they stand no chance. Their strategy is to continue with their propaganda and lies. They know they don’t have a record of performance; their plan is just to intimidate our supporters and ensure they stay off the polling booth.

“They attacked my supporters and wanted me to react to the attacks. I will not attack them back because as the Chief Security Officer of the state, my responsibility is to maintain peace. We would continue to do that at all costs.”

However, in reaction, the Chairman, Edo State APC Campaign Council, Mr John Mayaki, said the governor was confused.Mayaki said, “Governor Godwin Obaseki is a confused man merely projecting the criminal plans his divided party, the PDP, are perfecting following the dawning realisation that they have been rejected by the people of Edo State.
“The APC is the only party campaigning on its documented manifesto because our sole strategy to win the election is by winning the hearts and goodwill of our people through well-thought-out programs and policies that will bring relief and erase the failures of the past four years.

He is also trying to deflect attention while himself and his party, already renowned for violence, continue to ferry thugs and cultists into the State to rig the election. But he will be resisted. Together with our people, we are going to keep watch and ensure the votes to return Obaseki to where he came from are protected and made to count.”

This my state governor should calm down. Always having anxiety over non issues cheesy

I expect you to pull all resources around you along with your power of incumbency. You have a rugged deputy on your side, use him.

You are in charge of your terrain. If you play your cards well even the federal might cannot withstand your hurricane.

Stop crying wolf and get to work angry

keep wondering when integrity would mean a thing in Nigeria. Politicians just keep playing on the emotions of the populace all for the benefit of their own self and family. Just accept Jesus Lord and Savior so that you don't suffer twice

So sad to note that barely a month or so ago, this same Obaseki was a member of APC. So assuming he got the ticket on their platform, will he be saying all this?. Mr Obaseki, if you are so sure that your hands are clean and you have done well as governor, then you have nothing to fear. Otherwise, be ready to pack your things and go.

This would have been the case in an ideal situation but clean hands don't count in Nigeria.

Obaseki was in Apc and he knows what Apc did for him to win. He knows he can't withstand the effect of that same thing being done to him.

Obaseki has lost, he knows that. If anyone decides to fight for Obaseki, it is a waste of time. Even Obaseki won't fight for himself.

DemoCRAZY is the most foolish thing that ever happened to us in Nigeria, just look at them, today they are eating together tomorrow they are fighting. The western world that we copy doesn't do theirs' this way, If you are in party A you are in party A, they don't constitute nuisances like ours.

Anyway the elections should come and go, their news is getting irritating. I JUST WISH EDO PEOPLE GIVE US AN HANDSOME AND INTELLIGENT GOVERNOR THIS TIME EVEN IF HIS PARTY IS OPC, we are tired of these frog-face governors.
