Edo: Oshiomhole Speaks On Rift With Obaseki



The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has stated that his feud with Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State was not personal.

Speaking on Channels TV on Saturday, Oshiomhole stated that the rift was neither about money nor appointments.

According to the APC Chairman, the feud was all about issues relating to governance and carrying political players and leaders in the party along.

According to him, Godwin Obaseki has confirmed that he (Oshiomhole) nominated only one out of over 20 commissioners into his cabinet.

He said, “What we expected the government (Obaseki) to do is to give Edo people the benefit of continuity.

“Are these issues personal to me? We have no argument over money. We have no argument over appointments. In fact, in the meeting we held with four governors including Governor Bagudu (Kebbi), I asked the governor (Obaseki) how many persons did I nominate to your cabinet he confirmed it was only one.”

He noted that Obaseki later removed the commissioner he nominated along with seven others but he didn’t take any offence because he was out of government.
