Oshiomhole Rejects Obaseki’s Christmas Gifts



Obaseki vowed to probe Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole at Christmas eve rejected gifts from the Edo State Government.

It was gathered that messengers from the state government were dispatched to deliver the conventional Christmas presents reserved for former governors of Edo State to Comrade Oshiomhole but were turned back.

The messengers said they met the mother of the former governor, who rejected the items, stating that her son would not accept the gifts.

The gift items meant for Comrade Oshiomhole included four cows and ten bags of rice.

The distribution of Christmas gifts is an annual ritual by the state government, which serves as an expression of love, further strengthening the ties between the government and the people.

The gifts are distributed to government functionaries, political appointees, heads of security agencies, traditional rulers, religious leaders, heads of institutions of higher learning, among other prominent people in society.

The State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki and Comrade Oshiomhole have been locked in a political tussle centering on the leadership of the State House of Assembly, the governor’s policy choices among others.

Sources close to the governor said that he set the political rift aside to perform the ritual of sending the gifts to Comrade Oshiomhole.
