Obaseki vs Ize-Iyamu: Edo Has Become Syria – Shehu Sani




Senator Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, has likened the political crisis in Edo State to that of ‘Syria’.

He made this known in a statement on Saturday on his Twitter handle.

Shehu Sani described Obaseki as Assad, Wike as Putin, President Muhammadu Buhari as Trump and Adams Oshiomhole as Al Bagdadhi.

Naija News reports that the crisis rocking Edo State heightened on Thursday when security personnel invaded the State House of Assembly.

The Speaker, Frank Okiye and the Deputy Speaker of the State Assembly were also impeached on the same day.

This has led to camps of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) throwing jabs, accusations and counter-accusations at each other.

This is coming as the September 19 Edo governorship election draws near.
