The Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has hurled words at Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, regarding his statements that Nigeria would tear apart if Tinubu wins the coming election.
The PCC portrayed the statement has abhorrent and alleged that Governor Obaseki has depicted that he was one of the people leading Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of PDP astray.
Meanwhile, Obaseki, while reiterating his statement said APC’s “gang of hirelings, including a once-upon-a-time human rights activist, continue to pollute the public space with their foul and distasteful takes,”.
In a statement written by Mr. Festus Keyamo,chief spokesperson of the Tinubu/Shettima PCC said: “We read with utter amusement the outburst of the Governor of Edo State claiming Nigeria will break up if the APC wins the Presidential election”.
“This is coming from a Governor who turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the outrageous and divisive statement made by his presidential candidate in Kaduna a few days ago calling for Northerners not to vote for Yoruba or Igbo candidates. This is also coming from a Governor who has so far callously, heartlessly, and undemocratically “broken up” his own State by denying many constituencies of adequate representation in the Edo State House of Assembly by denying the members of their right to take their seats, even though the members were duly elected”.
“By making this abhorrent statement, Obaseki has clearly shown that he must be one of the elements within his Party not only misleading his candidate and party but also enabling them towards inevitable electoral doom. This is to our delight, but we worry that if elected, they will inflict the same divisive spirit on our country as a whole”.
