Governor Godwin, Edo New Godfather Compiles Chairmanship Candidates’ Names Inside His Car, Orders Deceptive Primary Election

GOVERNOR Godwin Obaseki who deceived Edo electorates to secure his second term of office in 2020 on the gimmicks of fighting his benefactor godfather, Adams Oshiomhole has become the ultimate godfather for suppressing democratic process within his own political party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The treacherous and serpentine Governor Obaseki, against his earlier preachment for democratic due process when Oshiomhole suffocated him out of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has become the most invidious and ruthless godfather who wouldn’t even allow his factional PDP members to elect counsellors or Chairmen in local elections.


Sources at Osadebe Avenue, Edo State seat of power told Trojan News Media that Governor Obaseki compiled the names of Chairmanship Candidates’ for coming Local Government election right in his car before he hurriedly travelled out of the country yesterday evening.

“Obaseki compiled the list of candidates in his car on his way from Edo North yesterday.

“Also present with him in the car was Philip Shaibu, Chief of Staff Mr Gbovo Iyoha and state PDP legal adviser.

“Obaseki hurried out of Benin and jetted out of the country to watch his undertakers do his dirty job which they have failed to achieve across the state.

“We’re happy that the Organizing Secretary, Ogie Vasco has already put a stop to the sham exercise that has been put together by Dr Tony Aziegbemi, the PDP State Chairman, who we understand is getting ready to contest as governor of state.

“We also understand that Dr Aziegbemi’s brother inlaw, Dr Dorry Okojie has flagged off his campaign also for governorship of the state”, a source in Uromi, Esan North East, which craved anonymity told our correspondent.

The source further stated that the aspirations of Aiziegbemi and Okojie has caused family disaffection that would lead to open confrontation soon.
