Ebonyi Governor, David Umahi, on Friday assured that Godwin Obaseki will be re-elected Governor of Edo State.
He said nothing will stop the Governor’s re-election because he has done well and deserves to continue in office.
Obaseki is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) while Umahi is a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Umahi was addressing Obaseki’s wife, Betsy, and other southern governors’ wives who were on a courtesy call to him in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.
The governors’ wives were in the state for the Southern Nigeria Governors’ Wives’ Forum quarterly meeting.
Umahi said: “Power belongs to God and no matter what anybody will do it is God that has the final say and I can assure you, Ma – you know, as an apostle of the Most High God I also prophesy. And because of the good work your husband is doing for the people of Edo State no man can unseat him.
“I made this statement so that the glory of God will become larger. It happened here in Ebonyi.
“I have a testimony of what God can do. Even in our NEC meeting, when Obaseki speaks, you see Economics.
“You see a man that came from private sector background. And so, we can’t wish that away. So, congratulations to you in advance and to all of us.
“You know the governors; we have so many elections. First is the primary, second one is the poll, then the third one is the tribunal. Then another one is the appeal and then the election of the elections is the Supreme Court.
“So, it is not an easy thing and if the hand of God is not upon you, you can’t scale through all these hurdles. And so, it is God who has brought all of us to leadership and I say double congratulations to all of us.” (The Nation)
