An ardent supporter of Governor Godwin Obaseki, Lukman Akemokue, has said the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Osagie Ize-Iyamu and the ex-national chairman of the Adams Oshiomhole will be ridiculed by people of Edo state.
According to Akemokue, who is also Obaseki’s publisher, said his boss would defeat both Oshiomhole and Ize- Iyamu.
Akemolue noted that governor Obaseki’s victory at the forthcoming Edo governorship election on Saturday, September 19 is very important.
Akemokue who spoke with journalists in Benin city, the Edo state capital, noted that Obaseki is not contesting against Osagie Ize-Iyamu, but Oshiomhole.
He said “Governor Obaseki has been getting the support of prominent Edolites ahead of the governorship poll.
He said Oshiomhole is a godfather in the state who is only bent on seizing the treasury of Edo state at all cost.
“But, I tell you that Obaseki and his office will be preserved by Edo people because his performance in the last three years and nine months will earn him reelection.
“We will continue to pray and support him in his drive to make Edo a better place for all of us. By the time he is done, he will become a brand that every person will be looking for. We will not allow Oshiomhole to kill and destroy him for us,” he said.
