Edo people will bury ‘dictatorship’ on September 19 —Obaseki

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, said on Friday the people of the state would bury dictatorship come September 19.

Obaseki, who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the election, stated this during the ward-to-ward campaign rally at Ward eight, Ward 10, and Uselu market in the Egor local government area of the state.

He said the “dictator to be buried politically had already been retired politically.”

The noted that the same “dictator” had before now sold the Uselu market, adding that was why the rental value at the market was N1 million until his administration reversed the sale.
