Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, the All Progressives Congress (APC)'s campaign council's chairman in Edo, has given his view about the administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Ganduje, one of the APC bigwigs who visited President Muhammadu Buhari with the party's gubernatorial candidate in Edo, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, said that Obaseki's leadership has been woeful.
The Kano governor even claimed that Governor Obaseki is a liability to his new political platform, the Peoples Democratic (PDP).

Ganduje said: “He could have been an asset to PDP. But I assure you that governor is a liability.
"In fact, it’s even better for us that we are contesting against a serving governor who failed woefully. He failed woefully in the area of human development."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Obaseki had described the failed invasion of the Edo state House of Assembly Complex as an attempted coup d’état that is as good as treason and contrary to the Nigerian Constitution.
Obaseki who disclosed this in a statewide broadcast on Friday, August 7, said the event signals grave danger to the safety and security of the polity.
He assured the people that his administration will take all steps necessary to defend the rule of law and democratic ideals.
“These events portend grave danger to the safety and security of our polity. It had all the hallmarks of an attempted coup d’état. The people of Edo State rose as one to prevent the desecration of our democracy. These acts are tantamount to treason, contrary to the provisions of the Nigerian Constitution," he said.
The Edo state governor went on to note that anyone or group of people who try to test the will in line will meet with the full wrath of the law.
Obaseki traced the beginning of the crisis in the state House of Assembly back to June 2019, when some members-elect of the 7th Edo state House of Assembly upon his proclamation refused to present themselves for the inauguration.
