The Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki has rejected the former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole and his rival Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s congratulatory messages sent to him on Monday following his supreme Court victory.
Gov Obaseki who faulted the congratulatory messages while addressing a large crowd of supporters at the Ring Road in Benin, wondered why the duo 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.
Obaseki said that Edo State will never fall for such cheap messages called congratulatory letter.
“They are not serious. Na today we do election, na today we win? They are full of tricks. 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 of presidency come 2023 is the People’s Democratic Party(PDP). Forward ever, backward never, Edo must move forward,” he added.
