Nigerians Are Angry, Many Parties Will Be Shocked In 2023 – Gov Obaseki

Godwin Obaseki, the governor of Edo State has told his fellow politicians and political parties to expect a shock from angry Nigerians in the 2023 elections.

Obaseki said this while chatting with journalists in Benin, Edo State capital, on Tuesday, noting that the electorate are fed up with governments at all levels – due to poor governance and inefficiency.

He said, “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.

“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.”
