Gov. Obaseki: “No man can stop me. “Power comes from God. Am Confident To Return As Edo State Governor
The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has said no man can stop him winning a second term in office.
Obaseki said this on Wednesday when he appeared on a Channels Television programme: “Sunrise Daily.”
Obaseki spoke just as a faction of the party loyal to the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, declared a former Secretary to the Edo State Government, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, as its consensus candidate for the June 22 primaries to pick a candidate.
Obaseki said on the Channels TV programme: “I am not a violent person. “But I am confident that the way I got into power is the same way I will return. “God gave me power. “If he wants me to return, I will continue. “No man can stop me. “Power comes from God. “I have friends with resources. “I worked for eight years behind the scene before I became governor. “So all that insinuations about using somebody’s resources…. “I became Governor on the platform of the party and I am grateful for it. “It does not matter whether it is direct or indirect (primaries), I will win.”
