The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has said no man can stop him winning a second term in office.
Obaseki said this on Wednesday when he appeared on a Channels Television programme: “Sunrise Daily.”
Obaseki spoke just as a faction of the party loyal to the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, declared a former Secretary to the Edo State Government, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, as its consensus candidate for the June 22 primaries to pick a candidate.
Obaseki said on the Channels TV programme: “I am not a violent person.
“But I am confident that the way I got into power is the same way I will return.
“God gave me power.
“If he wants me to return, I will continue.
“No man can stop me.
“Power comes from God.
“I have friends with resources.
“I worked for eight years behind the scene before I became governor.
“So all that insinuations about using somebody’s resources….
“I became Governor on the platform of the party and I am grateful for it.
“It does not matter whether it is direct or indirect (primaries), I will win.”
