Obaseki: I Saw Oshiomhole, Ize-iyamu’s Congratulatory
Messages On Social Media

According to him, Edo would never fall for such ‘cheap
messages’ packaged as congratulatory letters.
He added, “The APC in Abuja is being run just like what

Obaseki also said, “It is clear that there is a problem in
Nigeria. The country has money but until we change our

for the job is the People’s Democratic Party, in 2023.
Forward ever, backward never, Edo must move forward,”
