The Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State, Godwin Obaseki on Sunday noted that he sponsored the governorship election campaign of former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole.
The Edo State Governor stated this during a live debate between him and the governorship candidate of the APC, Osagie Ize-iyamu.
Obaseki in his statement claimed that Oshiomhole was broke as a former President of the Nigeria Labour Congress and couldn’t afford to sponsor his governorship campaign.
He further stated that he drew the blueprint used by the former Governor during his tenure, hence the reason the former governor could trust him to continue implementing the plan for the state.
Reacting to the claim, Ize-Iyamu said Obaseki contributed the sum of N100,000 only, as opposed to the governor’s claim that he funded the campaign.
