Edo state governorship election is slated for September 19, 2020.
Meanwhile, Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki on Wednesday said no man can stop him from being governor for a second term in the state.
Obaseki is having a running battle with his godfather and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole’s faction of the party, had on Tuesday night endorsed the candidacy of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the consensus candidate of the party for the Edo poll.
But Obaseki, in an interview on Channels TV, said he was confident of returning to power as first man of the state because “power comes from God.”
