Tinubu Can’t Pocket The Destinies Of Edo People – Labour Party



Tinubu Reacts As EFCC Moves To Investigate APC National Leader

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has been warned by the governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Isaiah Osifo, to stay away from the politics in Edo State as he would not be allowed to pocket the destinies of the state as he did in Lagos State.

The governorship candidate in the September 19 election gave the warning in reaction to Tinubu’s comment on the crisis rocking the Edo State House of Assembly.

Recall that Tinubu in his reaction to the crisis stated that the State Governor, Godwin Obaseki committed an impeachable offence by ordering the renovation of the Assembly complex at such a time.

Osifo while speaking in Benin City, the Edo State capital on Sunday, said the former governor of Lagos State and the former National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole won’t be allowed to impose retrogressive politics on the state.

“In Lagos State, Asiwaju Tinubu has succeeded in putting the destinies of over twenty million Lagosians in his pocket, who must go and prostrate in his Bourdillon residence before they can seek elective positions, buy the property and even start a business.”

“It is this retrogressive brand of politics that Tinubu wants to import to Edo State. But he fails to realise that Edo people have never been candidates for such mental dominance and subservience. He can check Nigeria’s historical records for this fact.”

“Tinubu cannot do to our people in the 21st century, what our forebears vehemently rejected till this day. He cannot subordinate free people like us, who would give anything for the triumph of social justice, to his whims. He should learn about Edo people from the rise and fall of Adams Oshiomhole, the sacked national chairman of the APC,” he said.

The LP governorship candidate stated that Obaseki had succeeded in stamping out the activities of area boys and land grabbers from Edo’s socioeconomic space but the reverse was the case in Lagos.

Osifo noted that the Edo State governor has done more in Edo State than Tinubu’s “stooges occupying the seat of power in Lagos have done.”

“In Edo State, the Geographic Information Service agency, set up by Governor Obaseki issues Certificate of Occupancy in a matter of weeks, and at an affordable cost. But in Lagos, the issuance of C-of-Os is still largely influenced by Tinubu, several years after leaving office.”

“This is the kind of culture Tinubu wants to foist on Edo people through his agents such as Adams Oshiomhole and the APC gubernatorial candidate. But Edo people will not allow them,” he added.
