You Can’t Extend Your Political Empire To Our State, Obaseki Blast Tinubu

The Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, has said that the former Lagos State Governor and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu cannot extend his political empire to Edo State as Edo people are determined to end the godfatherism in the state.

In a statement issued in Benin City, the Edo State capital on Tuesday, Osagie said the, “Our attention has been drawn to a broadcast in which a former Lagos State Governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in his quest to extend his political dominance and empire to Edo State, decided to take over the role of Edo people to choose through the ballot who to govern them for the next four years.”

Osagie noted: “It has become obvious that the spirited fight which Edo people have put up against godfatherism has sent tremors beyond the shores of Edo to the likes of Tinubu, who has for years sustained a stranglehold on Lagos and other states in South-Western Nigeria, hence this desperate, last-ditch effort to rescue the unproductive political instrument, now popularly referred to as godfatherism, with which he has feathered his nest and built his political empire at the expense of the people.”
