"I am more concerned about keeping my people alive especially now that COVID-19 cases are rising. You have to be alive to talk about elections and take part in politics."

Governor Obaseki added that he was not desperate to get the party's ticket at all cost, adding that he worked for eight years behind the scene to develop Edo state before he became the governor.

"I don't want to get the party's ticket at all cost. I worked for eight years behind the scene to develop Edo state before I became the governor. I'm not a violent person and I'm confident of getting back," he said.

"Someone brought me into power. I know who gave me power. God is the one that gave me power. As far as God is alive, and wants me to return, no man can stop me. The way I came into power, that same way, I will return. Power belongs to God," he added.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that as intrigues continue to play out in the politics of Edo ahead of the state gubernatorial election, two groups on Monday, May 18, staged a protest in support and against Adams Oshiomhle, APC chairman.

It was reported that the pro-Oshiomhole group, Edo State Coalition of Civil Society Organisations for Good Governance and Internal Democracy, was led by one Idiogbe Solomon.
