Edo-born Oil magnate, Captain Hosa Wells Okunbo has opened up on his expectations for Saturday’s Governorship election taking place in Edo State.
Speaking with Reuben Abati on Arise TV in a program monitored by Igbere TV, the billionaire said Governor Godwin Obaseki has created three opponents for himself in his quest for a second term.
The renowned philanthropist specifically mentioned himself, Adams Oshiomhole, former APC national chairman and Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the party’s guber candidate.
The business tycoon, who recently endorsed Ize-Iyamu, described the Obaseki-led administration as “monstrous” and “draconian.”
“Obaseki on his own created three candidates for himself one candidate real and two imaginary candidates.
Instead of him to concentrate and face the candidate he was supposed to face he made Adams Oshiomhole and Captain Hosa his opponents.”
Captain Hosa further berated Obaseki for allegedly demarketing Adams Oshiomhole, who was his benefactor, as APC national chairman.
He lamented how Governor Obaseki allegedly deployed ethnic sentiments on the Benin people against Oshiomhole.
“Same people who gave Adams the name ‘Osho Baba’ is the one he has decided to demarket”, the Edo-born billionaire alleged.
Captain Hosa, however, said the market women and the masses are solidly behind Oshiomhole.
He claims Oshomhole’s performance as governor, is clear for the masses and downtrodden to see.
“Of a fact Obaseki’s hatred to see success might be his albatross in the forthcoming election.
*The Governor has fought with every of his benefactor and made concerted efforts to rubbish and ridicule the years of labour these benefactors have put into the society.
“Obaseki might not escape judgement on September 19th as his atrocities are very visible to Edo Residents.”
