Anybody That Can Stop Us Should Come, We Dare You! – Angry Governor Obaseki Fires At Godfather, Abuja Politicians

Godwin Obaseki and his men

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, from the look of things, is now ready to politically tame his alleged godfather, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as well as those he has dubbed the “Abuja politicians”.

Coming out of the closet, literally, on Thursday, July 11, 2019, at a solidarity rally staged in his support in Benin, the Edo State capital, Obaseki had fired from all cylinders.

He started by accusing some “Abuja politicians” of heating up the polity and working assiduously and desperately to get him out of office.

Continuing, he asked rhetorically: “You know what is happening? (But) I want to assure you that what has been happening in Edo State for the past several months will not distract us. We will continue to be focused…

“I did not change cars; I did not buy an official car for myself until after 18 months because we did not have the money and the little money I had, I felt should be used for the people and not the Governor…

“We are tired of our children being short-changed. After 20 years of democracy, we cannot continue to behave as if we do not have democracy…

“We have not started politics, they want to pull us out early. INEC has not announced time-table for Edo election, they have only come out with timetable for Kogi and Bayelsa and even in those States, they (politicians) have not started heating up the polity as much as they are doing in Edo…

“I want to leave you with these words that those people who are parading themselves, who are speaking on the Internet for themselves and their pockets, we are watching you. For those people who have gone outside, Abuja politicians, to tell people from outside to come and invade Edo, split our House of Assembly, we are waiting for you…

“We have no fear at all, we are resolved that we will continue to do what is best for our state and country. We have no doubt that we are on the right path; we know that God is with us, we know that people are with us. So, if all these people are with us, who can stop us? Anybody that can stop us should come, we dare you…

“So, those Abuja politicians whom we refuse to send back and for those who got there by mistake, they can’t disrupt the peace of Edo. We will not let them. Nobody can stop the progress in Edo state.” He ended, and thereafter took his leave, even as the rally continued.

Obaseki and Oshiomhole, it would be recalled, used to enjoy a cordial relationship until recently when the issue of who controls the House of Assembly and others tore them apart.

Both men, initially, had denied their strained relationship. But with the political drama now unfolding in Edo State, and daily assuming unimaginable proportions, everything is now in the open, with many wondering how things would ultimately pan out.
