According to report gathered, Edo state Governor, while addressing a large gathering on Tuesday as part of the celebration to mark his victory, Obaseki said if the opposition (APC) party leaders were serious about their congratulatory letter, they would have printed it on a letterhead paper with a signature rather than posting it on the internet.
He stated that Edo will never fall for such cheap messages called congratulatory letters, adding that they are not serious.
“na today, na today we do election, na today we win?” Obaseki asked the crowd.
“The APC in Abuja is being run just like what they did in Edo when they were in power in Edo State. There is a problem in Nigeria,” he added.
“The country has money but until we change our mindset that taxpayers’ money must be used to work for the people and not for very few. We have to pray that what happened in Edo will happen in Abuja.
‘’The only party that has the right people for the job is the People Democratic Party (PDP) come 2023. Forward ever, backward never.”
