Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming Edo State governorship election, Governor Godwin Obaseki has said that the contest will be between him and his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole.
Obaseki, who spoke during the closing moments of the PDP campaigns in Oredo local government, remarked: “this election is a contest with Oshiomhole. We have dealt with him at the national level, we will bury him politically in this election; because he has no regard for Benin people, he has no regard for us in Oredo, and we will show him that he is nothing.”
He said narrated how Oshiomhole decided to pick who will represent his (Governor’s) constituency in the House of Assembly, saying: “can you imagine the insult? That was where this fight started.
“Because he believes, in his own mind, that Benin people are like chickens – when you throw corn, they will run after the corn.”
