Ahead of the 2023 election, the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has boasted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not get 25 percent of his state’s votes.
Obaseki made this known during an interview with Thisday on Wednesday, stressing that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will record a landslide victory.
He said the APC has failed to deliver the expectations of Nigerians and many people cannot rely on them anymore.
According to Godwin Obaseki, PDP is the real organic party in the country and he is ready to bet with his money that APC will not get 25 percent of votes in Edo state.
He said: “I see my presidential candidate winning this election with a landslide victory. The law (Electoral Act) has improved; it is not about your capacity to mobilise security or to supposedly have INEC rig for you,”
“We are winning, honestly. Don’t forget that I have been in both parties. I mean, I have friends across both parties. Some people call me a rainbow governor. The truth is that, today, everybody knows that most Nigerians accept that the ruling party has failed Nigerians.
They have not delivered to expectations of Nigerians and, therefore, Nigerians cannot rely on them going forward. We must have a change.
Having said that, what are the options? Interestingly, the main option is PDP and PDP is the only real organic party in the country. I give you instances from Edo State.
PDP governed Edo for about 10 years from 1999 to 2006. When they lost the elections, they were an opposition party for 12 years, but remained a viable opposition. In two years of PDP coming back into power, APC has collapsed till this day.
APC will not get 25 percent of the votes in Edo state. I am serious about it and I’m ready to bet my money on it.”
