Governor Godwin Obaseki‘s Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, has revealed that the former governor of the state and ex-national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, is not happy with the state Governor for not allowing him to become godfather in the state.
Recall that Oshiomhole on Monday pleaded with the people of Edo State for making Obaseki, a man that has no vision for Edo state the governor.
He also described the Godwin Obaseki as a snake in the government house Benin that must be kicked out.
The Governor’s spokesperson in a statement released on Monday noted that the criticism of Oshiomhole is due to his frustration over his failure to achieve his goal to govern Edo State for a third term using Obaseki as a proxy.
“In 2016 when Oshiomhole nominated and supported Obaseki, his hidden motive was to use Governor Obaseki. who he thought would be 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.”
“However, Obaseki’s refusal to mortgage the interest of the majority of Edo people 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,” Osagie said.
