Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has laughed off the allegation of non-performance levied against him by his Kano State counterpart, Abdullahi Ganduje,  accusing him of mistaking the meaning of performance.

Ganduje, chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Campaign Council for the September 19 governorship election in Edo State, had said that victory was assured for the party, because Obaseki had “performed woefully.”

But in a quick riposte through his spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki reminded the Kano governor that the baggage of the viral video of him stuffing dollars collected from contractors, was still playing in the minds of the public.

His words: “The comment by Governor Ganduje on the performance of Governor Obaseki in office is at best laughable. It is also disgraceful because the APC has apparently misconstrued the meaning of performance because it is verifiable that Governor Obaseki’s unprecedented performance across different sectors of the state is what has endeared him to Edo people. No amount of lame talk from the APC and their campaign handlers can erase these projects which litter the nooks and crannies of Edo State.

“Ganduje is in no position to assess Governor Obaseki or any other governor for that matter because he has a baggage hanging on his neck, which he needs to clear. It is important to put some of the government’s projects in perspective so that the public can judge.

“The Obaseki-led government through different memoranda of understanding (MoU) have completed or is at the verge of completing the following projects: the 6000bpd Edo Modular Refinery in Ologbo, Benin City; 55MW Ossiomo Independent Power Plant, in Ologbo, Benin City; the 1451-unit Emotan Garden Estate; strengthened broadband infrastructure with 400km fibre optic cables laid by Main One, among others.

“Workers and pensioners in the state are happy with Obaseki because he has kept faith with paying their salaries and pensions, while investors keep trooping in because of the transparent and efficient land management.”
