Obaseki to Oshiomole: Stop relying on thugs to win election

The feud between Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki and his predecessor, Adams Oshiomole deepened as Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, urged Oshiomole to concentrate on winning elections by the performance of the party and not by relying on thugs and violence for electoral victory.

Osagie said in a statement signed by him that Oshiomhole was only trying to cover up his inordinate ambition to be the ultimate godfather in Edo State and usurp the will of the ordinary people of the state.

His words, “Even his allegory of politics being like a forest with dangerous animals is a poor excuse to continue to perpetuate thuggery and to keep the collective patrimony under the control of a few greedy and violent people in the name of winning units and ward elections.

“Good governance remains the surest path towards winning elections especially when you are committed to free and fair and credible elections devoid of the kind of violence witnessed in recent elections in the country.

“So instead of trying to pacify the violent and the lawless just because you want to win elections, Oshiomhole should support the stellar performance being displayed by Governor Godwin Obaseki in Edo State, that way, he will not need the services of his thugs to win the next election.”
