Obaseki meets Oshiomhole, Says No Rift With Ex-APC Chair


Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said he has no personal grudges against his predecessor and immediate past chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Obaseki stated this when him and Oshiomhole met at Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Auchi, Edo State, during Centenary Birthday Thanksgiving of Msgr. Thomas Oleghe and 18th Canonical Erection Anniversary of the Diocese of Auchi.

He said “but I only dislikes his style of politics,”.

Obaseki, who exchanged greetings with an elbow-bump in compliance with COVID-19 protocols, with his predecessor, said they are both sons of Edo with interest of the state at heart.

“I don’t have anything personal against Oshiomhole. I may not like his politics, but he has not done anything personal against me. We are interacting with the interest of the country and the development of our community at heart.”

He assured of the state government readiness to support the Catholic School of Nursing and Midwifery Uzairue to strengthen the healthcare system in the State.

On the Zonal Congress of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), earlier schedule to hold this Saturday, he said it was postponed to Tuesday due to the local government elections taking place in Delta State.

On his part, Oshiomhole who acknowledged Obaseki, described him as ‘his brother and friend.’

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,” he said.
