Governor Obaseki Finally Reveals Actual Reason Why Oshiomhole is Against His Administration

Governor Obaseki Finally Reveals Actual Reason Why Oshiomhole is Against His Administration.

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has revealed the actual reason why his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, is against his administration in the state.


In a statement released by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, said the recent vituperation of the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, is because he's disappointed that Governor Obaseki frustrated his quest to become the political godfather in Edo State.


He added that Oshiomhole is trying to rule Edo State for the third term using Governor Obaseki as a proxy.

He said went the former chairman of the ruling party nominated Governor Obaseki to replace him in 2016, his intention was to use him as a pawn in his game to become the political godfather of Edo State at the expense of the will and wishes of the good people of Edo State.


He concluded that the inability of Governor Obaseki to subvert the general interest of the people of Edo State for the personal interest of Oshiomhole is the real cause of his anger and frustration.


Adams Oshiomhole supported Godwin Obaseki to replace him as the Governor of Edo State in 2016. The duo has been on loggerhead since Obaseki came into power.


The height of it was when the former chairman of the All Progressives Congress frustrated his successful bid to secure the party's ticket for his re-election campaign. The governor with his supporters has dumped the ruling party and joined the major opposition party, the People's Democratic Party, and has emerged as its candidate for the Governorship election coming up in September.


What do you think about this?

Can Obaseki win his re-election bid?
