The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has accused Comrade Adams Oshiomhole of relying on thugs and violence to win elections.
The Governor stated this through his Special Adviser, Crusoe Osagie, on Monday, December 16, in reaction to Oshiomhole’s earlier statement where he said he didn’t teach the Governor and his deputy, Phillip Shuaibu how to lose elections.
The Governor said: “Even his allegory of politics being like a forest with dangerous animals is a poor excuse to continue to perpetuate thuggery and to keep the collective patrimony under the control of a few greedy and violent people in the name of winning units and ward elections.”
“Good governance remains the surest path towards winning elections especially when you are committed to free and fair and credible elections devoid of the kind of violence witnessed in recent elections in the country.”
“So instead of trying to pacify the violent and the lawless just because you want to win elections, Oshiomhole should support the stellar performance being displayed by Governor Godwin Obaseki in Edo State, that way, he will not need the services of his thugs to win the next election.”
