Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said that Governor Godwin Obaseki, who is the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the coming Edo Governorship elections, is not a threat to his party.
Oshiomhole said this during an interview on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics, while responding to a question about whether Obaseki’s popularity was a threat to his party.
“How can he be a threat? A man who is not even eligible to contest elections? How can a snail be a threat in a race where tigers are involved?,” he said.
The ex-APC chairman had earlier said that he was confident in the party’s governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s ability to lead the state on the path of progressive development if elected in the September 19 governorship election.
On Saturday, Oshiomhole, said he had a fulfilling time is office even though it lasted for only two years.
During a reception organised in his honour by the APC leaders in Etsako Central Local Government Area of Edo State, the former governor of the state, alleged that his successor in office, Obaseki had betrayed him.
The ex-APC chairman insisted on his confidence in the party’s governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu to lead the state on the path of progressive development if elected in the September 19 governorship election.
The governorship election in Edo State will hold on September 19th, 2020 with Obaseki and Ize-Iyamu of the APC the leading candidates for the poll.
