Comments Off on EDO2020: We don’t want hidden godfathers in Edo—Omo N’Oba tells Obaseki and his new PDP allies
Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Eware II, Oba of Benin has called on River state governor Nyesom Wike and other members of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to desist from making themselves the new godfathers of the newly elected governor of Edo State Godwin Obaseki.
The Benin monarch made the above assertion when Obaseki led top PDP chieftains on a ‘Thank you’ visit after his re-election at the recently held gubernatorial election in Edo state.
Addressing his visitors on Tuesday, September 29, the revered monarch said: “I want to on this occasion plead with the PDP that you also as you have always been talking about the concept of godfatherism, you will uphold it and don’t let unscrupulous members of your party try to now come out and start to use your party by proxy or remote control to control our governor and end up being the hidden godfathers, we don’t want hidden godfathers.
Governor Obaseki of the People’s Democratic Party defeated his closest rival Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and 12 other candidates in the September 19 elections in Edo state.
