Oshiomole taunts Edo PDP Chieftains as Obaseki wins election

Welcoming the outcome of Wednesday's Governorship election in Edo State, the outgoing Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, said he had now permanently retired some PDP chieftains from active politics.
Speaking after a road show round the state capital, the Governor said: “They said they would disgrace Oshiomhole in this election because they were plotting evil during the elections, but God thwarted all their
plans, and I told our people these people wanted to kill us because of election, but they will never succeed. And I want to thank security agents, who worked so hard to ensure that those evil people were apprehended.
“Just look at the result of the election, Igbinedion lost his ward, Ikimi was defeated in Igueben, and that is because these people have lost touch with the people.
“We had a rerun in 2012 with all the godfathers on one side and new forces of change on my side. I won in all the 18 Local Government Areas. Our people have spoken loud and clear that they believe in democracy, they just don’t want to be beneficiaries, they want to be the drivers of the process. This was shown by the way they conducted themselves on election day.
“There is something unique in the way things have turned out. In Esan land, the senatorial zone of the PDP godfather, we won two out of the five Local Governments. We gave him a fight that he managed to escape.  He used the factor of his age to play on the emotion of the people. It is a victory for the people of the state.”
