Asiwaju Bola Tinubu former governor of Lagos State and National Leader All Progressive Congress (APC) has appealed to the residents of Edo State to reject Godwin Obaseki and vote him out in the forth coming Saturday Election.
The APC Chieftain who made this call on Tuesday during a live broadcast on TVC claimed that Obaseki has no respect for the principles of democracy, and does not understand the struggles involved in achieving it.
He therefore pleaded with Edo people never to return Obaseki to power, rather reject him just the way he refused to inaugurate the lawmakers who were elected by the people.
He said, “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.
“Godwin Obaseki did not participate in any aspect of the struggle to enshrine democracy in the country. Therefore, he cannot understand the value and the pains associated with this democratic struggle.”
