YOU CANNOT TAKE OVER EDO, OBASEKI WARNS ‘ABUJA POLITICIANS’

Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki has dared ‘Abuja based politicians’ to take over Edo state if they can.

The governor who has been in the middle of a political battle with the Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), made these comment on Thursday while addressing a rally organised to show support and solidarity for his administration.

The governor said those who are intent on causing crises in Edo state house of assembly cannot stop him.

Speaking to the supporters, the governor said some “Abuja politicians” are currently engaging in activities to heat up the polity in the state and trying to pull him out”.

“You know what is happening. I want to assure you that what has been happening in Edo state for the past several months will not distract us. We will continue to be focused,” he said.

“I did not change cars; I did not buy an official car for myself until after 18 months because we did not have the money and the little money I had, I felt should be used for the people and not the governor.

“We are tired of our children being short-changed. After 20 years of democracy, we cannot continue to behave as if we do not have democracy.

“We have not started politics, they want to pull us out early. INEC has not announced time-table for Edo election, they have only come out with timetable for Kogi and Bayelsa and even in those states, they (politicians) have not started heating up the polity as much as they are doing in Edo.

“I want to leave you with these words that those people who are parading themselves, who are speaking on the internet for themselves and their pocket, we are watching you. For those people who have gone outside, Abuja politicians, to tell people from outside to come and invade Edo, split our house of assembly, we are waiting for you.

“We have no fear at all, we are resolved that we will continue to do what is best for our state and country. We have no doubt that we are on the right path; we know that God is with us, we know that people are with us. So, if all these people are with us, who can stop us? Anybody that can stop us should come, we dare you.

“So, those Abuja politicians whom we refuse to send back and for those who got there by mistake, they can’t disrupt the peace of Edo. We will not let them. Nobody can stop the progress in Edo state.”
