EDO APC: Why I was angry with Obaseki, Oshiomhole reveals
Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) has described a viral reports that he is against a second term for his sucesssor, Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State as untrue allegations and should be treated as false.
Oshiomhole disclosed that he has nothing to gain if the governor does not return to office.
While speaking on Channels Television, Adams Oshiomhole revealed that his differences with Obaseki are not about monetary gains from his administration, or about him blocking the governor’s second term bid.
He added that at a meeting both politicians held with four governors, Obaseki confirmed that the APC chairman nominated only one out of over 20 commissioners into his cabinet.
The former governor noted that Obaseki later removed the commissioner he nominated along with seven others but he didn’t take any offence because he was out of government.
He, however, said the contention was all about issues relating to governance and carrying political players and leaders in the party along.
Oshiomhole also denied not wanting to support Governor Obaseki to run for a second term, saying he has nothing to gain in doing so.
