Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki at the weekend in Auchi said he had no personal grudge with his predecessor and estranged godfather, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, Njenje Media News reports.
Obaseki speaking to journalists in Auchi, Etsako-West Local Government Area of the state, at the Centenary Birthday Thanksgiving of Msgr. Thomas Oleghe and 18th Canonical Erection Anniversary of the Diocese of Auchi, which held at Immaculate Conception Cathedral, added that he dislikes Oshiomhole’s style of politics.
Obaseki, at the ceremony exchanged greetings with an elbow-bump in compliance with COVID-19 preventive protocols, with his predecessor, said they are both sons of Edo with the interest of the state at heart.
In his words;
“I don’t have anything personal against Oshiomhole. I may not like his politics, but he has not done anything personal against me. We all are interacting with the interest of the country and the development of our community at heart.”
Oshiomhole, who was also a guest at the event, hailed his successor, Governor Obaseki, describing 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.”
