Obaseki finally speaks up, reveals why Oshiomole wants him down.

I will beat Oshiomole even in his ward 10 of Etsako West LGA - Obaseki

The Edo State Governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has finally revealed and one opened up on why his lockahead with his predecessor is going neck-deep by the day. 

The governor who has been severely fought to a standstill by Comrade Adams Oshiomole said one of the reasons the sacked chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Oshiomhole, is against his reelection bid is because of his reversal of the sale of Edaiken Market, which Oshiomhole sold to his friends. 

Obaseki who made this known to electorates while addressing party faithful in wards 8 and 10, Egor Local Government Area, opined that the battle over who wins the forthcoming election is between him (Obaseki) and the sacked chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Oshiomhole, and not the candidate of the APC, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

According to the governor, Oshiomhole sold Edaiken Market to his friends who charged exorbitant rates that were beyond the reach of traders who needed the lock-up shops, Igbere TV reports.

"I reversed the sale of Edaiken Market and brought the rates down to the level that our people can afford. That pitted me against the godfather. He said that I cannot be a Governor. Is he God? Are we fools?, he said.

However, the embattled governor expressed optimism that he will defeat Oshiomhole in the gubernatorial election, including in Oshiomhole's Ward 10 in Etsako West Local Government Area of the state.
