Godwin Obaseki, the Governor of Edo state, says that Adams Oshiomhole, the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is angry with him because he refused to be used in his plan to become a godfather in the state.
Speaking through Crusoe Osagie, his special adviser on media and communication strategy, Obaseki said Oshiomhole supported him in 2016 because he had an ulterior motive.
Oshiomhole said his mission in Edo is to ensure obaseki’s defeat in the September 19 gubernatorial election, while apologizing to the people of the state for supporting His election as Governor in 2016.
“I made a mistake by supporting a person who has no idea about my people. So I want to correct my mistakes by making sure that the servant of God, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, is elected Governor and drove the snake out of the government House, ” he said.
“From today until September 19, I am here in Edo state because I am a political lion and I am not afraid of anything.
“Now the snake that enters our family home, God has driven the snake to where it should be.
“I have returned home to join you and start the process of returning home to the family of the APC. So now I have only one mission, and I know that this is our shared mission: to bring Edo back to the part of sustainable development.”
The Governor said the former National Chairman of the APC plans to use him as a pawn to deceive the people of the state.
He said oshiomhole was disappointed that he failed to achieve his goal of running the state for a third term using Him as a proxy.
“In 2016, when Oshiomhole put forward and supported Obaseki, his ulterior motive was to use the Governor Obaseki. who he thought would be a pawn in his game to deceive the Edo people and put himself on the throne as the ultimate godfather of Edo politics at the expense of the will and wishes of the Edo people,” he said.
However, Obaseki’s refusal to pawn the interests of the majority of Edo residents to satisfy Oshiomhole and his handful of greedy followers is the cause of oshiomhole’s bitterness, which has caused Him to bury himself in pursuit of an innocent Governor who is trying to do the right thing for his people.”
