Idahosa while speaking with newsmen in Benin City, stated that the rift between the former Governor of Edo state and Obaseki would be difficult to settle because it emanated from envy and jealousy.
He stated that the Edo State Governor would win re-election in 2020 even without the support of Oshiomhole.
Idahosa claimed that the APC Chairman is intimidated by Obaseki’s achievements.
He added that Obaseki had performed 85 per cent in three years against Oshiomhole’s 45 per cent performance in eight years.
Idahosa said, “Oshiomhole said he brought only one Commissioner. That is a lie. Oshiomhole brought the Deputy Governor, he brought the APC State Chairman, he brought the SSG.”
“The main issue between Oshiomhole and Obaseki has not been brought to the fore. We know they are busy working underground to stop Obaseki but nobody can stop Obaseki from having his eight years.”
“Obaseki’s record is so intimidating. Oshiomhole wants to be the lone star in the state. The truth is that Oshiomhole is envious and jealous of Obaseki.”
“Governor Obaseki has won the hearts of the people through infrastructural projects that cut across the state and bringing sanity to governance.”
