During the Centenary Birthday Thanksgiving of Msgr. Thomas Oleghe and 18th Canonical Erection Anniversary of the Diocese of Auchi held at Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki who graced the occasion maintained that he has no personal grudges against the former chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.
Obaseki who disclosed this to journalists in Auchi, Etsako-West Local Government Area of the state explained that he only dislikes Oshiomhole’s style of politics.
Everyone’s attention was drawn when Obaseki and Oshiomhole exchanged greetings with an elbow-bump in compliance with COVID-19 preventive protocols.
Obaseki further explained that him and his Oshiomhole are both sons of Edo with the interest of the state at heart.
“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.”
The governor said 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.
On his part, Oshiomhole, who was a guest at the event, hailed his successor, Governor Obaseki, describing him as ‘his brother and friend.’
“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.”
