Obaseki Vs Oshiomhole: Edo Lawmaker Accuses Gov Of Disloyalty



Oshiomhole Obaseki APC rally

THE gulf between Adams Oshiomhole and his political godson Godwin Obaseki has widened after a senior party chieftain and member of the Edo State House of Assembly publicly reprimanded the governor for being combative and betraying his mentor.

Chris Okaeben, a member of the State House of Assembly representing Oredo East Constituency in an interview with newsmen in Benin also accused the governor of plotting against his life after stopping him from the National Assembly primaries of the party. He affirmed that the governor owed undivided loyalty to Oshiomhole on the ground that he, Obaseki was a product of the family of his predecessor.

Okaeben accused Obaseki of trading in political gossip as he opened up that the governor stopped him from contesting the National Assembly primaries because of his, Okaeben’s loyalty to Oshiomhole.

While charging the former and incumbent governors to privately resolve their differences, he said:

Okaeben: Obaseki Should Be Loyal To Oshiomhole

“Anybody loyal to Oshiomhole cannot benefit from the goodwill of this administration. I have no regret owing allegiance to Oshiomhole. Obaseki should do away with political gossips. 
“What is happening now is political distraction. Some persons have set up a vault to launch second term campaign for Obaseki. The only way they can make money is to tell him to stay away from Oshiomhole so that they can make more money to buy property in Dubai. 
“I have text messages he (Obaseki) forwarded to me in pretence that he received the test from someone that I was in Abuja for a long period of time persuading the national leadership of the APC to give the second term ticket to someone else and therefore he wants to put me on notice that he is aware of my mission. 
“That is enough evidence for me to tell the entire world that if I receive such message from the Governor, then he is aware of every step I make all the way and therefore he is planning for me. I was not in Abuja. The National Chairman was not in Abuja. I do not know from where he got those information from. I am  begging journalists to help save my life.”
