The feud between the former governor of Edo State and now National Chairman of the ruling APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and his political godson, Mr Godwin Obaseki may not be resolved soon as the latter has warned his godfather to stay away from the party’s governorship primaries in the state, stressing that he (Oshiomhole) is an interested party.
The Edo State governor gave the warning while speaking to newsmen after submitting his expression of interest and nomination forms at the APC National Secretariat, Abuja, on Wednesday.
According to him, “It is against natural justice for a man to be a judge in his own case.
“For me and my colleague – Governors, we can’t see the party we are building destroyed. We should all drop our egos and work for our party.”
He noted that it was “wrong for any human to try to play God”.
While denying claims that he purchased Governorship nomination forms for the Peoples Democratic Party, Obaseki insisted that he was “a party man to the core”.
He expressed confidence that he will win the APC primaries regardless of the mode chosen for the primaries in Edo.
