Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has insisted that he holds no personal grudges against the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.
News reports that Obaseki disclosed this to newsmen in Auchi, Etsako-West LGA of the state, at the centenary birthday Thanksgiving of Msgr. Thomas Oleghe and 18th Canonical Erection Anniversary of the Diocese of Auchi held at Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Auchi.
Obaseki, who exchanged greetings with an elbow-bump in compliance with COVID-19 preventive protocols, with his predecessor, said he only dislikes Oshiomhole’s style of politics.
“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,” he said.
On his part, Oshiomhole, who was a guest at the event, commended Governor Obaseki, describing him as ‘his brother and friend.’
Oshiomhole stated: “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.”
Meanwhile, Obaseki had disclosed that the Zonal Congress of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which was scheduled to hold this Saturday, was postponed due to the local government elections taking place in Delta State.
“The Zonal Congress, which was to hold today has been postponed to Tuesday and it’s a normal routine to satisfy the party’s constitution; there is nothing amiss,” he added.
