Obaseki credible to lead Edo, says Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has described Mr Godwin Obaseki, the governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Sept. 10 election in Edo, as a seasoned technocrat to lead.
Buhari said this at the APC ’s mega campaign rally at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium on Tuesday in Benin.
“Obaseki is a seasoned technocrat and I recommend him to you so that you can continue to grow the state developmental stride.’’
The President recalled the several previous invitations to him by Gov. Adams Oshiomhole and applauded his several achievements in the state.
“I am grateful for inviting me to come today to identify with you.
