Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki says he is confident of returning to power as the first man of the state because “power comes from God.”
The governor who disclosed this on Wednesday, in an interview on Channels Television breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, noted that he is a man of peace, not a violent person.
“I am not a violent person. But I am confident that the way I got into power is the same way I will return.
“God gave me power. If he wants me to return I will continue. No man can stop me. Power comes from God,” he said.
Obaseki speaking concerning violence during election said he has always canvassed for peace and believes election should not lead to bloodshed.
The governor who also spoke concerning the political rift within his party the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, stated that he is not distracted, adding that his focus is on developing Edo State.
