The Real Obaseki Before His Appointment By Adam Oshiomole In 2009 (Opinion)

Mr. Godwin Obaseki is a non-standard businessman who was rehabilitated by the former national chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on assumption of office with government appointment, and subsequent sponsorship as the Edo State Governor in 2016.

Oshiomole's appointment for Obaseki is the only real credential he can boast of without much controversy. His education in the University of Ibadan, especially starting from how he gained admission with only 3 credits without a credit pass in English and Mathematics, is still being investigated.

Some of us could remember in 2016 the sacrifice made by oshiomole to ensure Obaseki became the Edo State Governor on the platform of APC against all odds. One would think Mr. Obaseki will worship the very ground upon which Oshiomole walks or at the least, show gratitude by being loyal to the former labour leader to the point of conceding to some of his political demands.

The good people of Edo State are yearning for Osagie Ize-Iyamu to be Governor because he has been with them all his life without blemish, compared with Godwin Obaseki who they barely know, but for his name recognition as an Obaseki. Godwin Obaseki had not been in the state since leaving after graduating from the University of Ibadan in 1979. He had spent most of his years in Lagos, before coming to Benin to join the Oshiomhole government in 2009.

For watchers of political events in Edo state between 2007 when Oshiomhole was first elected as governor of the state and the role he played in the election of Obaseki in 2016.

Some of us could still remember the rough roads oshiomole and other APC leaders went through in trying to make Obaseki the candidate of the APC. I knew the strength of the people that were persuaded by the then Oshiomhole to be part of Obaseki’s political army and I know how tough that battle was considering his political obscurity in 2016.

Today as it stands Gov. Obaseki have poured the sand in the eyes of all those who stand by him to be a governor.
