Gov. Godwin Obaseki is one of the governorship candidates to look out for in the forthcoming Edo Governorship election. Apart from being an incumbent governor of the state, he has performed beyond expectations. Though it’s not proper to say he may win or lose the forthcoming election. The final verdict will come from the electorates. Edo people will vote for their choice. Though godfatherism might count or might not count.
The immediate past governor of Edo State who also happened to be the immediate past of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomole had vowed to use all the resources at his disposal to send Gov. Godwin Obaseki out of the Government house. Comrade Adams Oshiomole believed he paved in the way for the emergence of Gov. Godwin Obaseki as the governor of Edo state after him and that he alone can put an end to his second term ambition.
The fact still stands that Gov. Godwin Obaseki can’t be easily defeated unless Comrade Adams Oshiomole wants to rig the forthcoming election for Pastor Ize Iyamu. Edo electorates hold the mandate of whether to stop Gov. Godwin Obaseki from actualizing his second term governorship ambition or to elect him the second time.
