Obaseki Mocks Oshiomhole, Ize-Iyamu, Calls Them Tricksters

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has mocked former All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman Adams Oshiomhole and his rival Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu for sending him congratulatory messages on Monday.

Obaseki who faulted the congratulatory messages while addressing a large crowd of supporters at the Ring Road in Benin, wondered why they simply sent the messages to him through the internet.

He noted that if the opposition leaders were really serious about their congratulatory messages, they should have printed them on their letter-headed papers, with their signatures on them, rather than posting it on the internet.

The gathering was held to commemorate his Supreme Court victory last Friday.

“Edo will never fall for such cheap messages as congratulatory letters,” he claims. They aren’t taking themselves seriously. Is it true that we hold elections today, and that we win today? They have a lot of tricks up their sleeves.

“The APC in Abuja is being run just like what they did in Edo when they were in power in Edo state.

“There is problem in Nigeria. The country has money but until we change our mindset that tax payers money must be used to work for the people and not for very few, we have to pray that what happened in Edo will not happen in Abuja.

“The only party that has the right people for the job is the People’s Democratic Party, come 2023.

“Forward ever, backward never, Edo must move forward,” he added.

Oshiomhole and Ize-Iyamu had sent congratulatory messages to Obaseki on Monday, following the Supreme Court judgment on Friday.
