‘You are toxic’ — Tinubu hits Obaseki for saying Nigeria will break if APC wins


The Tinubu-Shettima presidential campaign council says Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo, is “toxic” and unfit to be governor.


On Monday, at the swearing-in of members of the Edo state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign council management committee, Obaseki had said Nigeria will break up if APC wins the 2023 presidential election.


Responding to the governor’s comment in a statement on Tuesday, Bayo Onanuga, spokesman of the Tinubu-Shettima presidential campaign council, said Obaseki’s statement shows he is not fit for the role he currently occupies in the state.


“For a man who swore an oath of allegiance to the sovereignty and unity of Nigeria to be a purveyor of ill-will towards the same country because of partisan politics smirks of total irresponsibility and recklessness unbecoming of a governor who has a constitutionally sanctioned duty to preserve the unity and indivisibility of Nigeria,” the statement reads.


 “It is worth stating that we are not in any way surprised about Obaseki’s outburst about Nigeria’s breaking. He is, by nature, a divisive, obnoxious and toxic human being that lacks the introspection and contemplation expected of a person occupying the office of a governor. He is obviously a man bereft of any iota of emotional intelligence and perhaps a misfit for the role he currently occupies.


“Obaseki should know by now that Nigerians do not want to have anything to do with his party and Atiku. And the signs are there for all to see: Obaseki’s PDP cannot even rescue itself from internal implosion.


“Nigeria remains secure in the hands of our party APC. And the future is even brighter with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima.


 “Their candidacy has brought RENEWED HOPE across the country. We believe Nigerians will invest their trust in our party and a renewed greatness is our destiny.”


Obaseki was formerly a member of the APC until he lost the party’s ticket to seek re-election in 2020
