Edo 2020: Edo Has Become Syria, Wike Is Putin, Baba Is Trump – Sehu Sanni

Published

Former Kaduna State Senator, Shehu Sanni has likened the political crisis in Edo State to that of ‘Syria’

The crisis heightened on Thursday when security personnel invaded the State House of Assembly.

The Speaker, Frank Okiye and the Deputy Speaker of the State Assembly were also impeached on the same day.

This has led to camps of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, and All Progressives Congress, APC, throwing jabs, accusations and counter accusations at each other.

Just last night, Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, said Governor Godwin Obaseki will be voted out come September 19 because of his “woeful leadership”

According to the National leader, Obaseki who promised to be the Governor of all the people of the State has denied 2/3 of the people of his state their right to representation in the state’s only legislative chamber.

Also, Governor Umar Ganduje described Obaseki as a woeful failure and a liability to his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Obaseki had fired back at Ganduje saying he was in no position to assess his performance because he has “baggage of the viral video of him stuffing dollars collected from contractors”.

But Shehu Sani, reacting to the rivalry between both parties said Edo State has become Syria with Wike acting as Putin and Buhari as Trump.

His tweet read: “Edo has become Syria;Obaseki is Assad, Wike is Putin, Baba is Trump, Jagaban is Nathanyahu with Saudi, Turkey, Iran and Terror groups all in there.“

Meanwhile President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday endorsed Pastor Ize-Iyamu as the APC flag bearer for the next month’s elections in Edo State.

Governor Nyesom Wike had expressed disappointment over Buhari’s endorsement.

According to him, Buhari’s endorsement was wrong especially for someone whose main agenda is fighting corruption to back Ize-Iyamu.

Ize-Iyamu of the APC will battle it out with the incumbent governor and PDP candidate, Godwin Obaseki, in the September 19, 2020 polls.
