Godwin Obaseki, Edo newly reelected governor, has vowed to show no clemency on his former mentor and godfather Adams Oshiomhole if he continued to "unleash his lions."

It would be recalled that the political feud between Obaseki and Oshiomhole dated back to 2019 and climaxed with the governor's defection from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in June 2020.

Obaseki, prior to his defection to the opposition, was controversially axed out of the APC ticket race due to alleged defective certificate ― what many termed as a plot machinated by Oshiomhole.

The Edo governor was declared the winner of the anticipated poll by INEC having met all requirements by polling 307,955 and winning 13 out of the 18 local government areas in Edo state.

Prominent Nigerians including former vice president Atiku Abubakar, Dele Momodu, and former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan have described Obaseki's victory as a win for democracy and end to political godfatherism.

Speaking on Arise TV' Morning Show on Tuesday, September 22, Obaseki said he would not chase Oshiomhole out as the former APC national chairman threatened him.

Obaseki said he would, however, show no mercy if Oshiomhole continued to constitute nuisance by unleashing his lions.

“I have no intention to drive Oshiomhole from Edo, but if he continues to unleash his lions, we will have no mercy,” the governor said.

Meanwhile, Obaseki showered a flurry of encomium on President Muhammadu Buhari, with the Edo governor saying that he won the Saturday, September 19 guber election because the Nigerian leader wanted people's will to succeed.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with BBC on Sunday, September 20, after being declared the winner of the keenly contested election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Obaseki said the president's neutrality sealed his victory.
