I have no feud with Oshomhole, says Obaseki

Governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki has said he doesn’t have any feud with the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.

Obaseki, disclosed this while speaking during an interview with reporters at the annual convention of Usagbe club of Nigeria in Abuja on Saturday.

He noted that there is only minor political issues in the state which have been resolved.

The governor said, “I do not have a feud with the national chairman. There are political issues in Edo which have been resolved.

“As far as we are concerned, they are not major issue. We have a House of Assembly that has been inaugurated. A few members have not accepted to be inaugurated. I am sure when they get inaugurated, the issues will be settled. What is happening is not usual. These are matters in court, let the court adjudicate. I am not an expert in constitutional law.

“If you understand what happened in Edo in 2006, the non-state actors had become empowered by the political class, they were collecting revenues, they were essentially determining things. They were an alternate government.

“They constituted themselves into an army that was used for political activities but as a government that is interested in attracting investments, we had to ensure that we focus on law and order and strengthen the state and the state system.”
