In recent news National leader of the APC, Abiola Ahmed Tinubu has cleared the air on who he thinks the Edo people of Nigeria should vote as their next leader.

In an interview he had in his house in the Lekki environs of Lagos, the leader of the ruling party, rebuked the Governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki saying he was a coward and did not deserve the vote of the Nigerian people as he accused him of being the harbringer of violence in Edo state before the elections.

The leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, Tuesday advised the people of Edo to reject the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Godwin Obaseki, noting that he (Obaseki) does not deserve their votes. Disclosing this in a sponsored broadcast on TVC, the former Lagos state governor said: “Obaseki does not deserve any democratic ballot paper. Don’t vote for him, I appeal to all of you.

Narrating how he suffered along with many others to gain democracy for Nigeria, the outspoken APC Chieftain opined: “I, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, want to appeal as a committed democrat, and the leader of all democrats regardless of our political parties, to our conscience and commitment to democracy today on the forthcoming election in Edo state.

“I want to appeal to you to reject Godwin Obaseki in this coming election. I have suffered with many others to bring about this democratic regime, that today, we are enjoying in the country. “Then, Godwin Obaseki didn’t participate in any aspect of the struggle to enshrine democracy in the country. “Therefore, he could not understand the value and the pains associated with this democratic struggle.
