Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole has said that the state cannot become the property of the Igbinedion family.

Oshiomhole made the comment after predecessor, Lucky Igbinedion said that the next governor will emerge from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“The people have a clear choice to make. You want Igbinedion era back because Ize-Iyamu has been straight forward on it that they want to change this change to the Igbinedion era. Lucky has confirmed that one of their own would be used to reverse the clock back,” Oshiomhole told journalists on Saturday, September 17, 2016.

“Edo cannot return to the house of the Igbinedions… They want to use tax payers’ money to celebrate a man who has never served Edo State.

“Edo people have seen the light. They cannot go back to the dark era which the Igbinedion house represents. They will consolidate the present gain and raise it to a higher level by voting for Godwin Obaseki, who is not and will never be part of the Igbinedions,” he added.
