Edo Gubernatorial Election: Obaseki’s Victory, A Death Knell To Godfatherism – Reno Omokri


By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – As the results of the Edo State Governorship election continue to tilt towards victory for the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate, Godwin Obaseki, Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has taken a swipe at the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Adams Oshiomhole.

According to Omokri, the results released so far indicates that Edo is not Lagos where godfatherism plays a significant role in the electoral process, adding that political godfathers were being put to shame in Edo State.

His comment is coming closely in the heels of results so far released which shows Governor Godwin Obaseki of the PDP in an early lead, with Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) tagging along.

Omokri’s tweet read: “me The @OfficialPDPNig is coasting to an easy victory in Edo, going by official @INECNigeria results so far released.

“The forces of godfatherism are being shamed. Oshiomhole and Bola @AsiwajuTinubu now know that Edo is definitely not Lagos!”
