Edo Guber Aspirant Kicks As Oshiomhole Backs Dangote’s Man, Obaseki

imageA aspirant for next year’s gubernatorial election in Edo State, Blessing Agbomhere, has faulted an alleged suppport of incumbent Governor Adams Oshiomhole for the Chairman of the state Economic Team, Dr. Godwin Obaseki, to succeed him as governor of the state.
The aspirant who is seeking to fly the flag of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the governorship election, said it was a mistake for Governor Oshiomhole to support Dr. Obaseki.
Agbomhere who spoke at a maiden town hall meeting with youths in the state where he unveiled his blueprint for developing the state, described himself as the youngest aspirant in the governorship race.
He said Oshiomhole was “only testing the waters” with the alleged support for Obaseki, adding that the people of the state and not an individual would decide who emerged the next governor.
He stated that his team was carefully studying the APC constitution to ensure that the supremacy of the constitution is ensured during the party primaries.
“Governor Oshiomhole is an individual. He can decide to support whomever he chooses. Remember in politics, there is deceit.
“A time will come when people will analyze the history, successes and failures of these aspirants. Obaseki is the biggest mistake Oshiomhole can make in Edo State.
“Oshiomhole is only testing the waters. He is not supporting Obaseki and he will not support Obaseki. Obaseki does not have the quality and qualifications to govern Edo State. Dangote cannot produce the governor of Edo State.
“As the chairman of Edo Economic team, Obaseki was given the resources and the finances to bring investment to Edo State. He said he worked for Dangote and brought him to Edo State. They were given land and spent billions on it only to abandon it to the detriment of Edo people,” Agbomhere said.
P.M.NEWS reports that an alleged instruction by Governor Oshiomhole to his trusted loyalists to start marketing Obaseki as his preferred successor, has stirred anxiety and apprehension among leaders and stalwarts of the APC in the state.
Interestingly, the state Commissioner for Works, Osarodion Ogie, who is allegedly also eyeing the governorship seat, is said to be one of those saddled with the responsibility of marketing Obaseki by Governor Oshiomhole.
