I don’t have any problem with Oshiomhole – Obaseki

Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has denied any rift with his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, the All Progressives Congress national chairman.

Available evidence, however, contradict Mr Obaseki’s position.

“I don’t have any feud with the national chairman,” the Nation newspaper quoted Mr Obaseki as telling reporters on Saturday in Abuja, where he attended the annual convention of a socio-economic group, Usagbe Club of Nigeria.

Mr Obaseki admitted that “there are political issues” in the state, but these were being resolved.

“As far as we are concerned, we have a House of Assembly which has not been inaugurated, the key members have not accepted to be inaugurated, so when they get inaugurated, the issue there will be settled,” the governor to have said.

The governor said the court should be left to adjudicate on the Edo assembly crisis– a fallout of the rift between the governor and the APC national chairman.

All the 24 members of the state assembly belong to the APC.

But nine of them, allegedly prompted by the state governor, hurriedly met at night to ‘inaugurate’ the House and also ‘elect’ a speaker.

Mr Obaseki recently sacked eight commissioners from the state executive council.

The sacked commissioners are said to Mr Oshiomhole’s loyalists.

“We’re on the last lap as a government; we need to review how we operated in the last two or three years.

“We need to put our best foot forward and give the final push. So, it is not unusual in the life of governments after a few years,” the governor defended his sacking of the commissioner, according to the Nation newspaper.
