The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has been mocked by Nigerians following the victory of Governor Godwin Obaseki in the Edo State governorship election.
Obaseki who contested on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party defeated his closest rival, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu with a total of 307,857 votes.
The Independent National Election Commission returning officer for the election declared Obaseki the winner after polling the highest votes as mandated by law.
Nigerians have described the development as an end to godfatherism in Edo State.
Here are some reactions below:
Tinubu will never be President of this country.
His empire will end where it began – Lagos.
His children and children’s children can continue to rule Lagos for generations to come but he will never be President.

PDP will win the 2023 presidential election not because they have the best candidate but because Nigerians are tired of APC and Tinubu’s Godfatherism.

Tinubu actually de-marketed Ize Iyamu and APC via that crack head video he recorded.
He subtly insulted Buhari and quite unfortunately that should be the very beginning of his political woes.
Resisting the urge to Shalaye is key.

My dear Lagosians, it is very possible for you to break the chains of your slavery and be free from Tinubu. How long will you continue being in shackles?
Your city is deteriorating,illiterates,thugs and hoodlums rule over your city. Be like Edo people and get rid of your demigod

Tinubu will never be President of this country. And even if he ever becomes, God forbid; I won’t be in this country to witness such a misfortune.
