Former National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, on Saturday, has stated that he has nothing against the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki.
Obaseki and the former governor of Edo state had met in Auchi, Edo State, at the Centenary Birthday Thanksgiving of Msgr. Thomas Oleghe and 18th Canonical Erection Anniversary of the Diocese of Auchi held at Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Auchi, PUNCH reports.
Obaseki, who exchanged greetings with an elbow-bump in compliance with COVID-19 preventive protocols, with his predecessor, said they are both sons of Edo with an interest of the state at heart.
Obaseki also said he has no personal grudges against his predecessor but only dislikes his style of politics, a statement from the governor’s office said.
The governor said, “I don’t have anything personal against Oshiomhole. I may not like his politics, but he has not done anything personal against me. We all are interacting with the interest of the country and the development of our community at heart.”
On his part, Oshiomhole, who was a guest at the event, hailed his successor, describing him as ‘his brother and friend.’
Oshiomhole, “Once the governor speaks, the matter ends. The governor knows that pensioners here might not be able to do much, that is why he said every other thing required to complete the hostel of the Catholic School of Nursing and Midwifery in Uzairue, his government will do.”
It was earlier reported that the governor, who was elected on the platform of APC in 2016 was denied the party’s ticket for a second term due to intra-party wrangling.
He later defected to the Peoples Democratic Party and defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the APC candidate and the anointed candidate of Oshiomhole and Bola Tinubu in the 2020 Edo State Governorship Election.
