He said “Comrade Oshiomhole came to me, asking that we join forces to fight and bring an end to the practice of godfatherism in the state.
“The partnership helped us in changing the narrative of development in the state.
“This led me into politics. I am into politics to better the lives of Edo people. We believed Oshiomhole and followed him to fight godfatherism.
“Godfatherism is not good but today he is saying godfatherism is good. He said let the people lead but today he wants to lead the people, against their interest.”
“Any politics that doesn’t benefit the majority of the people is bad politics. The resources we have in the state is to be used for the benefits of the people of Edo State, not a few politicians.”
“I am not bothered because no man is God.
“When they say I am a mosquito, I was never worried; I told them that mosquitoes can bite and it can cause malaria and if not well-treated, it can kill someone. Those bitten are already on life support but we pray they don’t die."
