The Edo State Governor and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the forthcoming election, Godwin Obaseki, has rubbished a comment credited to the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje which described him as a failure.
Ganduje while speaking at the Presidential Villa while presenting Ize-Iyamu to President Buhari as APC flagbearer, Abuja had described his counterpart from Edo State as a woeful failure and a liability to his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The Kano State governor had declared that Obaseki’s failure would aid the victory of the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the September 19 governorship election.
In a counter response, Obaseki said Ganduje was in no position to assess his performance because he has “baggage of the viral video of him stuffing dollars collected from contractors”.
Ganduje was recently caught on camera allegedly collecting kickbacks from contractors in his state.He has since denied the allegation.
However, a statement by Obaseki’s spokesman, Crusoe Osagie said the remark by Ganduje was disgraceful and laughable, stressing that the Edo governor does not stuff dollars in his pocket.
