Governor Godwin Obaseki has revealed the real reason his predecessor and former APC National Chairman , Adams Oshiomhole is after him.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that Governor Godwin Obaseki revealed this in a statement signed and released on Monday by Crusoe Osagie, his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy .
The Edo State Governor said Adams Oshiomhhole started witch-hunting him after he blocked the former Labour Union leader from establishing himself as the Godfather of Edo State.
“In 2016 when Oshiomhole nominated and supported Obaseki , his hidden motive was to use Governor Obaseki as a pawn in his game to defraud Edo people and enthrone himself as the ultimate godfather of Edo politics at the expense of the will and wishes of Edo people.”
He claimed that Oshiomhole wanted him to satisfy him and a handful of his greedy followers but he refused to mortgage the future of Edo people.
“However, Obaseki’s refusal to mortgage the interest of the majority of the people of Edo state for the satisfaction of Oshiomhole and his handful of greedy followers, is the cause of Oshiomhole’s bitterness which has led him to bury himself in pursuit of an innocent governor who is trying to do the right thing for his people,” Obaseki ‘s statement read.
Adams Oshiomhole has openly claimed that the Governor was fighting All Progressive Congress party members by destroying their properties .
