As aspirants continue to outsmart one another ahead of the Edo state 2020 governorship election, Kenneth Imasuagbon has said he is convinced of coasting to victory in September, saying “God told me that.”
Imasuagbon, who is eyeing the Edo government power-seat on the platform of the main opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), made this disclosure on Monday, June 8, during a programme on Channels TV.
Speaking further, Imasuagbon stated that time and power belong to God but he has received a divine confirmation that he will be given the mantle of power in the state come September.
The frontline PDP aspirant also boasted that he has the backing of the people of Edo state to scale through the hurdles of primary and win the election.
“I will be governor. God has told me that. No man born of woman will stop me. I can tell you I’m unstoppable. I have God and I have Edo people backing me,” Imasuagbon said.
“I will not stop running to be governor of Edo state until I reach my goal. Make no mistake, I am a very resilient person,” he explained.
“Those who know me from my school days know me [for that]. I am a courageous man. My courage is as strong as steel.”
Imasuagbon also claimed that no aspirants coming on the platform of the opposition party have his credentials and political acceptability.
He, however, said he would "shake and hug" whoever emerges as the flagbearer of the party in the primary and the election.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported earlier that tricky hurdles await Governor Godwin Obaseki as the ruling party, All Progressive Congress (APC), insisted that it would not reverse its decision on the election of Edo state.

Issa-Onilu said that the party is not ready to bend the path as direct mode of primary will be used for the guber election in the state.
