Gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date of the APC in Edo State, Mr. God­win Obaseki, has chal­lenged his coun­ter­part in the PDP, Pas­tor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to tell Edo peo­ple the source of his wealth.

Obaseki, who threw the chal­lenge yesterday in Benin, dur­ing a town hall meet­ing with ar­ti­sans and youths, said they would con­tinue to build in­fras­truc­ture and in­vest in agri­cul­ture and power.

“I will tell Edo peo­ple the source of my wealth and let him (IzeIyamu) tell us his source of wealth be­cause some­times, we’ve to look at those who said they want to be gov­er­nor and ask them where they have worked be­fore.

“Some­body who has never cre­ated any job, only made money from pol­i­tics, ask him which com­pany he worked for be­fore and I will tell you where I have worked,” he said.
