The political rival between Governor Godwin Obaseki and another governorship aspirant in his state has taken a new dimension.
Governor Godwin Obaseki
The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has restated his resolve to clinch his party's governorship candidate by saying that he is not afraid of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Obaseki stated this while making an appearance on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
Ize-Iyamu contested the last governorship election under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), before defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He will now go up against Obaseki for APC’s ticket in the September 19 poll.
But the Governor insists he has no reason to be scared of Ize-Iyamu.
“Why should I be? The last time I contested, he (Ize-Iyamu) was my opponent from the PDP and the votes are there.
“I beat him (when I had no track record as a governor) and now with the track record as a governor, I don’t have any fears,” Obaseki said.
