Governor David Nweze Umahi of Ebonyi State, in January 2020, prophesied that Godwin Obaseki will emerge as winner of the Edo Governorship Election which was recently concluded.

Recall that Umahi had told Obaseki’s wife that her husband will be reelected as the Governor of Edo State despite that back then in January, Edo State Governor was a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, while Umahi remains a member of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.

Umahi noted that “power belongs to God and no matter what anybody will do, it is God that has the final say and I can assure you ma, you know as an apostle of the most high God I also prophesy. And because of the good work your husband is doing for the people of Edo state, no man can unseat him “.

Umahi made this known known when Obaseki’s wife, Betsy Obaseki on January 24, 2020 at Exco chambers, government house Abakaliki while addressing Wives of Southern Governor’s forum led by the Edo state Governor’s wife, on a courtesy visit to Umahi for their quarterly meeting in Ebonyi state.

Umahi said: “Power belongs to God and no matter what anybody will do, it is God that has the final say and I can assure you ma, you know as an apostle of the most high God I also prophesy. And because of the good
work your husband is doing for the people of Edo state, no man can unseat him.”

“I made this statement so that the glory of God will become larger. It happened here in Ebonyi, I have a testimony of what God can do. Even in our NEC meeting, when Obaseki speaks, you see Economics. You see a man that came from private sector background. And so, we can’t wish that away. So, congratulations to you in advance and to all of us”, the governor said then.

On 19th September, 2020, Edo People voted for Obaseki and returned him back as the Governor of Edo State.

Obaseki polled 307,955 votes across the 18 local government areas of the state to defeat the All Progressives Congress candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu,.who scored 223,619 votes.

Total votes cast was 550,242 out of which 12,835 was rejected.

Obaseki was elected on the APC platform in 2016 but defected to the PDP after being denied the ticket to run for a second term owing to intra-party squabbles.
