Obaseki made the statement while featuring on Channels Tv programme, “Sunrise Daily” on Wednesday, as a guest of the station.
He expressed optimism on his returning to office as the governor of the State after 2020 election, stressing that, “only God gives power, hence, I am unstoppable.
“I am not a violent person. But I am confident that the way I got into power is the same way I will return.
“God gave me power. If he wants me to return, I will continue. No man can stop me. Power comes from God.”
Governor Obaseki debunked the rumor renting the air that he used the resources of the people of Edo State to become governor.
“I have friends with resources. I worked for eight years behind the scene before I became governor.
“So all that insinuations about using somebody’s resources is not true. I became Governor on the platform of the party and I am grateful for it.
“It does not matter whether it is direct or indirect (primaries), I will win.”
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC), had earlier on Wednesday announced its endorsement of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the consensus candidate of the party.
The decision of APC is an indication that the party is done with the sitting Governor Obaseki, who has been having issues with the party national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomole.
