The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu has condemned the recent comment by Edo Governor, Godwin Obaseki.

Recall that Obaseki said at the inauguration of the Edo chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council that Nigeria would break should Tinubu and the APC win the 2023 presidential elections.

However, in response, the Director of Media and Publicity of the Tinubu-Shettima Campaign, Bayo Onunuga said the governor has ridiculed his office.

Onanuga said Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima had demonstrated capacities and competencies as Governors of Lagos and Borno States.

He said their achievements and legacies in public service continue to stand the test of time having engineered the emergence of worthy successors.

The spokesperson accused Obaseki of recklessness and wishing the country bad because of politics.

Onanuga told the governor to stop his “scaremongering” and “the dirty gutter of bitter politicking and crisis-baiting”.

The APC insisted that Obaseki does not have any landmark achievement other than paying those on whose shoulder he rose to political relevance in Nigeria with evil.

“The energetic Governor Nyesom Wike has expressed the deepest regrets in ever helping Obaseki to retain power.

“He is a divisive, obnoxious and toxic human being that lacks introspection and contemplation expected of a person occupying the office of a governor,” he said.

Onanuga called the governor a man bereft of any iota of emotional intelligence and perhaps a misfit for the role he currently occupies, reports Daily Post.

On the claim that the federal government prints money everyday, the APC said only a disconnected and diseased mind could imagine the scenario that Obaseki concocted.
