Edo state governor-elect, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has launched a blistering attack on his opponent in the last governorship election, telling him to leave God out of everything.
After his defeat at the polls, Ize Iyamu had said he'd seek the face of God on the matter and has been given the go ahead to appeal the election results.
In an emotion-laden retort, Obaseki said Ize Iyamu to "stop deceiving the people because he is only pursuing his ambition and so should stop mentioning God.”
“You never sought the face of God before, during and after the election, let alone hear from the Almighty God," Obaseki said in a statement by his spokesman, John Mayaki.
“I want to call on the unsuspecting public to beware of political false prophets and pastors who lie in God’s name and who come to them in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
“We know them in PDP and we know the pastor and his antecedents. Edo people know them by their fruits. Do Ize-Iyamu and PDP expect to gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles and reap orange and cherry?
“Let me remind them that every good tree bears good fruits while a corrupt tree bears evil fruits. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruits, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruits. So also, God cannot speak to Ize-Iyamu and even if, not without repentance.
“Edo people cannot be deceived by Pastor Ize-Iyamu’s importation of God’s name to hoodwink and whitewash.”
Reacting to this outburst, Ize-Iyamu, through one of his aides, Efe Igbinovi, said Obaseki was not God and does not know God.
“Obaseki is not God, he does not know God, so he has no right to question Ize-Iyamu’s closeness to God. He should face the problems confronting him.
