Attacks on APC chieftain, Bola Tinubu have not stopped rolling in since he expressed his political dislike for Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki.
Obaseki is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 19 election
Tinubu had on Tuesday asked the electorates in Edo to reject Governor Obaseki, who is seeking re-election in office.
Speaking in a video aired on TVC, Tinubu said the people should vote out Obaseki in Saturday’s election.
The South-west politician accused Obaseki of being a dictator in Edo, noting that the governor also lacked the rule of law and respect for the people of the state.
He said, “I want to appeal to you to reject Godwin Obaseki in this coming election. I have suffered with many others to bring about this democratic regime that today we are enjoying in the country.
“Then, Godwin Obaseki didn’t participate in any aspect of the struggle to enshrine democracy in the country.
“Therefore, he could not understand the value and the pains associated with this democratic struggle.
“He does not deserve any democratic ballot paper. Don’t vote for him, I appeal to all of you.
“Obaseki demonstrated the act of dictatorship, lack of respect for rule of law, lack of respect for you, the people, who voted for those legislators prevented from being sworn-in.”
But many Nigerians have come out to condemn Tinubu’s utterances, saying it was uncalled for.
They explained that the APC National Leader cannot tell the people, who to vote for during elections in the country.
One of them, Prince Zephaniah, described Tinubu as a non-democrat for attacking Obaseki in the viral video, noting that the people can no longer be deceived.
He said, “We saw the democratic struggle that turned him to Lagos landlord. The generation that was deceived in this country is dead. You can’t deceive this generation again.”
Akorede Oladipupo said Tinubu needed to be aware that the Nigerian people were now wiser.
“I’m not for any political party because they are the same, but how could someone that called himself a democrat ask people to reject someone. “
