Should Adams Oshiomhole, erstwhile national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) misbehave again, no mercy will be shown when dealing with him, Godwin Obaseki, Edo State governor said on Tuesday.

Mr Obaseki made the above comments while featuring at The Morning Show, a political programme on Arise Television.

The governor-elect, when asked, said he has no plan to drive Oshiomhole, his predecessor, out of town having defeated him and his party at the Saturday election.

“If he continues to behave the way he has always done, if he continues to be destructive, if he continues to find his lions and tigers in Edo state and tries to create problems for us here then we will not have any mercy. So it’s totally up to him,” Obaseki said.

A day before the September 19 exercise, Mr Oshiomhole who fell out with his protege, the governor, over irreconcilable differences, had described his successor as a political lizard whom he, the political lion as he claimed to be, will tame during the election.

But as the exercise went on his candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, lost to the governor who scored over 307,000 votes to defeat his closest opponent who polled over 220,000 votes.
