Tinubu, Oshiomhole Pose Big Danger To Nigeria's Democracy - Obaseki

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has tagged his predecessor Adams Ohiomhole and the National Leader of the All progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, as threats to Nigeria's democracy.

Obaseki who spoke during a broadcast on Arise Television on Tuesday, said that Tinubu and Oshiomhole pose a big danger to the country's democracy and if nothing was done to caution them, they were going to destroy the country's democracy.

"The challenge with people like Oshiomhole and Ahmed Tinubu is that if they do not accept and change their style and attitude, they pose a big danger to our democracy because they are extra-constitutional players.

“They constituted themselves into what they say they are without any constitutional responsibilities and try to overlord themselves over people who have constitutional authority and if we allow them to continue it will destroy our democracy,” Obaseki said.

It will be recalled that Obaseki who fell out with Oshiomhole, APC's former national chairman, during the build-up to the Edo governorship election, decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after his disqualification from APC's primary election.

The former APC national chairman threw his weight behind Osagie Ize-Iyamu, his party’s candidate, who was Obaseki’s major rival in 2016.

Also, Tinubu, during a television broadcast, told the Edo people to cast their votes against Obaseki.

However, Obaseki emerged victorious, defeating Ize-Iyamu with an 84,336 votes margin.
