Be Careful, Mosquito will kill you, Obaseki tells Oshiomhole


The unending public spat between Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, and his predecessor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has moved up another gear with Obaseki warning the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), not to underrate his capacity to take him to a cleaner.

The first salvo was fired in this regard by Oshiomhole in July when he likened political situation in the state to that of a buzzing mosquito around the ear saying: “the test of leadership is when a mosquito is blowing your ear, if you keep quiet nobody will hear and if you shout mosquito, mosquito everybody will hear. May we not be provoked by it.”

The former labour leader was alluding to the fight between him and Obaseki and likened the governor to a mosquito.

On Friday, in a thinly veiled response to his predecessor’s comment at one of the activities to mark his third anniversary, Obaseki told Oshiomhole not to underrate him.

He said: “They say we are mosquito but we will show them mosquito can cause malaria. If you are not careful, malaria will kill you.”
