- Governor Godwin Obaseki visits chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, in his hometown, Auchi in Edo state
- The media aide to the governor, Crusoe Osagie, says the visit was done as part of the Eid-el-Kabir occasion
- Osagie faults media reports suggesting that there is a dispute between Obaseki and Oshiomhole, noting that such narrative was being propagated by financially insolvent persons
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has paid a surprise visit his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, despite media reports of disagreement between both politicians.
The Cable reports that the governor visited the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in his hometown, Auchi, Edo state on Monday, August 12.
The special adviser to the governor on media and communications, Crusoe Osagie, said Obaseki visited Oshiomhole, who was with his mother, Aishetu Oshiomhole, for the Eid-el-Kabir holidays.
The governor’s aide faulted media reports suggesting that there is a dispute between Obaseki and Oshiomhole, noting that such narrative was being propagated by financially insolvent persons.
“The notion that these two men are adversaries is being propagated by morally and financially insolvent people seeking to profit off of the challenges they have been working so hard to foment,” Osagie said.
“You cannot blame such people really. Their talents and abilities are severely limited, so it is in their collective interest to stoke tension and drive division, but I can tell you that they have already failed."
Meanwhile, the resolution of the Senate directing the Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state to issue a fresh proclamation for the inauguration of the state House of Assembly has been described as unconstitutional and a flagrant disregard for the principle of separation of powers, by the Edo state government.
The state government, in a statement signed by its secretary, Osarodion Ogie, on Tuesday, July 30, said people should not be allowed to set the state ablaze merely to satisfy their thirst for power and control.
He described the Senate directive on a fresh proclamation for the inauguration of the state House of Assembly as unfortunate.
