Nigerians Are Angry, Many Politicians, Political Parties Will Be Shocked In 2023 Elections, Says Obaseki

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has said Nigerians are fed up with governments at all levels, warning that the electorate would shock politicians and political parties in the forthcoming 2023 elections.

Speaking to journalists in Benin, Edo State capital, on Tuesday, Obaseki said politicians should expect surprises from the electorate due to poor governance and inefficiency.

“Nigerians are fed up with the inefficiencies and failures of government officials and other representatives and will reject the same if nothing is done to change the narrative. No political party today can beat its chest and say they will win or have a clear victory in the next elections in the country.”

“People are watching and the only reason why people will leave their houses to polling units is because there is a reason to either vote for or against something. If they have not benefited, they are not likely to come out on Election Day.”

According to him, the people are closely watching the political situation in the country and are ready to shock political parties.

“For us as a government and representatives of our people, we would be hurting ourselves if we ignore the changes that are coming and believe that things are still the same. We will all be shocked as we are beginning to see. People are now beginning to realise that they need to demand more from people in government and those managing their resources and commonwealth; people will go out to vote their choice or interests.

“We are lucky in Edo State because we saw it coming and have laid down the roadmap and anticipated it coming but our challenge is that many people don’t believe it, thinking we have time and things will still happen the way they usually do.”

He however called on political leaders to step up and assuage the pains of Nigerians.
