While replying to a question on if Obaseki’s popularity was a threat to his party during an interview on Channels TV Sunday Politics, Oshiomhole said that Obaseki who is known to be the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is not a threat because he is not even eligible to contest elections.
He further expressed the Edo state Governor as a snail involved in a race tigers are in. Oshiomhole said;
“How can he be a threat? A man who is not even eligible to contest elections? How can a snail be a threat in a race where tigers are involved?”
