Obaseki To Tinubu: You Can’t Extend Your Political Empire To Edo by bolaayenimo: 2:46pm On Sep 15
Governor Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the former Lagos State Governor and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu cannot extend his political empire to Edo State as Edo people are determined to end the godfatherism in the state.

The governor who spoke in a statement by Crusoe Osagie, his media aide on Tuesday, Osagie said “Our attention has been drawn to a television broadcast in which a former Lagos State Governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in his quest to extend his political dominance and empire to Edo State, decided to take over the role of Edo people to choose through the ballot who to govern them for the next four years.”

Osagie noted: “It has become obvious that the spirited fight which Edo people have put up against godfatherism has sent tremors beyond the shores of Edo to the likes of Tinubu, who has for years sustained a stranglehold on Lagos and other states in South Western Nigeria, hence this desperate, last ditch effort to rescue the unproductive political instrument, now popularly referred to as godfatherism, with which he has feathered his nest and built his political empire at the expense of the people.”

Stressing that Edo people are committed to ending godfatherism in the state, he said: “Tinubu knows clearly that come September 19, when godfatherism would have been dismantled in Edo State, the people of Lagos may just have found the recipe and formula for removing the chokehold placed on their collective destinies for decades by Tinubu, hence the inciting television broadcast.


"He should take note that Edo people do not yield their will, liberty and power of choice to oppressive figures because they are perceived to have economic and political means. Like one of the great sons of Edo, former Governor and former National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, recently said, our people do not give in to ‘primitive loyalties.’ We always chase noble causes and a little study of our history, should show Tinubu the indomitable spirit of the Edo person.

The first time Tinubu political empire extended to Edo State was when he sponsored Wole Olanipekun for Oshiomole election tribunal which he won at the appeal court. That was when AC took hold of Edo State until this day and Oshiomole performed well in terms of governance in Edo State.

Tinubu has the right to speak in Edo election because he is a leader of the APC party and he will do what he can for their candidate to win just as Atiku spoke in support of Obaseki when he asked Edo people to vote for him.

I am sure by Sunday evening, all this noise will stop about Edo and we will at least have a hint of the candidate that will be elected.

Obaseki shouldn't have responded. Do you wonder why Tinubu said this at the election week and not before? Obaseki should have allowed Wike or Atiku to respond. These gimmicks are meant to distract him and they are working.

Oshiomole was Buhari and Tinubu's candidate and Obaseki openly challenged him, which is equivalent to challenging the President and Tinubu. He also insulted Tinubu by saying Edo is not Lagos. He further insulted the President by announcing his resignation from APC at the Presidential villa. That said, win or lose, Obaseki needs to make peace with Tinubu, Oshiomole and co. If he loses on Saturday, that is the end of his political career and international appointments. I feel for him. Oshiomole, hate him or love him, is a dogged fighter and has never lost any battle in his professional life. This election would either further mystify him or totally demystify. The stakes are too high.

That Tinubu video is doing more harm than good for Ize Iyanmu. Whoever came up with that idea wasn't thinking. I guess they wanted to make a counter video to Atiku's. Edo people are now scared of Tinubu having access to their state like he did under Oshiomole

Oshiomole has never lost any battle in his professional career indeed! What of the one he lost when he was sacked from work(apc national chairman). His sacking was influenced by ward chairman. The one he will loose this Saturday will help cement the fact that Oshiomole is not above defeat, especially when he tries to stop a man whom appears to have been hand picked by God to rule Edo state at such a time as this. Tinubu too will get to understand the true meaning of Edo no be Lagos after this election. Nigeria as a nation needs the emergence of more politicians like Obaseki for this nation to move forward. Sentiment apart, if you live here in Edo state you will know Obaseki means well for the state.

Time shall tell how ? To mean you're throwing your support right ?

I don't know what's wrong with some blacks or Africans. Sth seem to be fundamentally wrong with the Nigerian Africans.

To see that your perception goes this way and you still root for this same class of people is sickening without hope of healing.

I may not support any politician in Nigeria cos they never act like they are worthy to be discussed of a human who knows where he is going : infact I'm indifferent. But that doesn't mean one wouldn't or isn't to use his or her reason and cognitive sense expected of a human. And that' should basically mean to support what the PDP fellow represented in that approach towards the other creature.

His statement is genuine and more to be lauded for being against godfatherism. And it becomes pertinent seeing that that was and is a cancer to any nation; as it has been to Nigeria now which now looks like sh*t.

Una no get future - and no ever want to get future ?

See as the country look like.

In this 21st century ? In this era ?

Just look at.


It's been said (or at least a rumour or faulty postulation) that in about 10years time rapture is to happen. And na so naija go still dey do till e happen ?

So till Jesus comes the second time , naija no go still improve from this sh*try thing e be ? So naija go still dey laik this till Christ come second time ?

Naa Waah !

Tinubu is the only Nigerian that has been Governor of a state for over twenty years yet the state can't boast of common pipe borne water , good roads and even proper toilets for 80 percent of it's inhabitants and yet he wants to throw Edo into such woes ... EDO NO BI LAGOS
