Atiku stated this a few hours after the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, said Obaseki does not deserve a single vote in the Saturday governorship election.

However, reacting on his Twitter page, Atiku urged Edo voters to cast their votes for for Obaseki and to equally defend their votes.
