- Godwin Obaseki has been tipped to win the APC primary election in Edo state by Adamawa governor Ahmadu Fintiri
- According to the governor, Obaseki is the democrat who will fight his way to victory despite the hurdles before him
- Governor Fintiri also thanked his Edo colleague for his overwhelmingly displayed spirit of tolerant partisanship towards the opposition party
With the stage set for a possible power shift in Edo, Governor Ahmadu Fintiri has expressed confidence in Godwin Obaseki emerging as the All Progressive Congress (APC) flagbearer.
Fintiri expressed his confidence while throwing his weight behind the embattled Edo governor who will face five frontline aspirants in the first battle to the heart of the state.
APC primary election is scheduled for June 22 but there has been internal unrest in the party which is highlighted by the Adams Oshiomhole vs Obaseki feud.
The ruling party had approved direct mode of primary for the state election but it was rejected by Obaseki loyalists who wanted the party to take the alternative way similarly approved by the APC constitution.
Speaking ahead of the election on Monday, June 8, the Adamawa governor described Obaseki as a democrat who will find his way out of the challenges.
The governor also thanked his Edo counterpart for providing Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primaries despite being an APC governor.
In a related news, Legit.ng reported that 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.
