Adams Oshiomhole has come hard on Godwin Obaseki with the immediate national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) saying the Edo governor is not a threat to the ruling party's quest to win Edo state election.

Oshiomhole and Obaseki fell apart with the political feud between the former godson and his mentor forcing the latter to resign his membership of the ruling party.

With less than two months to the Edo guber election, Oshiomhole seems to have heightened the political rivalry with Obaseki who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s candidate.

The former APC chairman further posited that Obaseki is not eligible to contest because he has defects in his certificate making him ineligible.

According to him, Ize-Iyamu will emerge victorious in the election and shame Obaseki who Oshiomhole dubbed as a snail in the race of tigers.

“How can he be a threat? A man who is not even eligible to contest elections? How can a snail be a threat in a race where tigers are involved?” Oshiomhole boasted as he answered questions on the coming governorship election in the state.
