Benin – Mr. Godwin Obaseki, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, on Thursday declared that his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, does not possess the working experience to lead Edo State to the next level.

Obaseki, who accused Ize-Iyamu of being part of those who allegedly ran the state aground during the PDP reign the state, warned that he will go to jail if he does not retrace his steps.

Obaseki made the declaration while addressing a rally at Oredo and Ikpoba Okhai local government areas where chieftains of the PDP led by the former chairman of Oredo Local Government Area, Victor Ebomoyi, his followers and PDP executives in Oredo were received into the APC by Governor Adams Oshiomhole and his deputy, Dr Pius Odubu.

According to Obaseki, “Somebody who has not worked before cannot govern Edo State. Ize-Iyamu has no experience to govern the state. For the PDP to present Ize-Iyamu is the greatest insult against the people of Oredo and Edo State generally. And we will not allow it, we will show them that because we allowed them steal the other time, this time around we will jail them. We will not allow them to come back and steal.

“This is a man his only antecedent is personal assistant and just being a politician, he lacks what it takes to lead our people. This time around we have come to work. By the grace of God, God must win come September 10. The minimum votes we must get in Oredo is 120,000 votes”.

Also speaking at the rally, the deputy governor of the state, Dr Odubu, noted that the Oshiomhole administration had laid a solid foundation for the future, therefore he urged the people to vote Obaseki, saying “we cannot go back to Egypt. There is nothing in the PDP to celebrate. APC has done well for our people and we all must reward APC by voting Obaseki”.

Others who spoke include the Secretary to Edo State Government, Prof. Julius Ihonvbere; former minority leader of the House of Representatives, Samson Osagie; Director General of the Obaseki Campaign Organisation, Osarodion Ogie. He was hailed by his people in Ikpoba Okhai for his leadership prowess
