Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki says only the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Former Nigeria’s Vice President and former Presidential candidate of the party in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar can rescue Nigeria and place it on the path of economic prosperity and sustainable development.

Obaseki stated this when he received members of the Atiku Support Group, led by Chief Raymond Dokpesi, on a courtesy visit to the Government House, Benin City.

Obaseki said: “If Nigeria is going to be salvaged, PDP has to step into the throne to salvage this country politically. The stakes are too high; we cannot allow Nigeria to continue the way it is going.

“I don’t just see how we can continue to deceive ourselves. We try to prevent the country from growing by limiting and restricting imports, coming with all forms of phantom excuses to limit people from buying and importing what they cannot produce and need to live.

“On the other hand, they are restricting foreign exchange availability; they are just throwing millions of Nigerians into poverty.”

Obaseki described Atiku as a Nigerian committed to the country, saying his achievements are visible. 

“He is eminently qualified to contest the position of President of Nigeria and as you know, at the end of the day, power ultimately comes from God,” he said.

Dokpesi, In his response, commended Obaseki for his giant strides and transformational projects since he assumed office.

He noted that the country has never been so divided as a nation and that everybody now refers to it as the poverty capital of the world.

Dokpesi said, “All the indices clearly show that we are a failed state.”
