Mr Godwin Obaseki, the Governor of Edo State said on Monday that a win for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general election will lead to the break up of Nigeria.
Obaseki said Nigerians’ heads should be examined if the APC wins in the 2023 elections. The governor spoke in Benin during the inauguration of the Edo State PDP Campaign Management Council for the 2023 general election, headed by Chief Osaro Idah.
Obaseki said the future of the country is dependent on the outcome of the 2023 polls as only the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can rescue the nation from its current socio-economic woes. To him, PDP is the only party that can place Nigeria on the path of sustainable growth and development.
He said: “This 2023 election will be won by what we do now, not what we do on Election Day. I believe this will be an easy election for us as a party if we campaign.
“Our heads should be examined if the All Progressives Congress (APC) wins. God forbid, but should APC win and come to power in 2023, this country will break. APC has done much damage to this country. Our debt is growing to N60 trillion and yet we continue to print money. They have destroyed this country. APC has threatened the survival and existence of this country.”
He expressed confidence that the PDP will emerge victorious in 2023. According to him, “Our candidate will win. We will rescue, rebuild, and reset Nigeria and put it back on the path of growth and development. Edo is ready to rescue Nigeria and after that Edo will not be left behind.
“Our politics today is all about our survival, not what to eat. Whatever sacrifice we will make is to ensure the nation survives. We will put in our best to ensure our party, the PDP, wins the 2023 general election. This election will be a different election; when we ran in 2020, we set a new template of election in Nigeria and today other states are following it.”
