Oshiomhole Vs Obaseki: Face Governance Instead Of Blackmailing Me – Oshiomhole Fires First Shot At Obaseki

The feud between the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his successor in Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has reached climax with Oshiomhole urging Obaseki to face governance instead of blackmailing him.

Oshiomhole gave the advice in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Simon Ebegbulem, in Abuja on Tuesday.

The National Chairman of the ruling party insisted that he was attacked at his residence in Benin on Oct. 12 but Obaseki, however, in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Crusoe Osagie, said that Oshiomhole was never attacked in the state.

Oshiomhole said: “We have it on good authority that the governor (Obaseki) intends to create disaffection and crisis in the state, APC and probably dump the party for another party.

“That is why, he has embarked on this brigandage which Edo people will resist. So, he should stop blackmailing me and face governance which is why Edo people voted him into power.

“We are even more scared now that the governor is making every effort to coerce me into giving him details of my movement in Edo State. Who knows what he is plotting again. But every evil plot against me will fail.”

He alleged that the last Saturday’s siege at his residence by Obaseki’s thugs was a good example.

“Before that incident, state government sponsored thugs have been harassing, intimidating APC members across the 18 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state because APC leaders refused to adopt his second term aspiration.

“People are being sacked in their jobs everyday in the state,” he said.

It would be recalled that Obaseki said that Oshiomhole was never attacked in the state as being alleged.

“We have no knowledge of alleged attack on the residence of the APC National Chairman based on a report we received from the State Commissioner of Police, DanMallam Muhammed,” Obaseki said.

He said that the former governor did not inform his office, Commissioner of Police or State Director of the Department of State Service (DSS) for security while on visit to the state.

According to him, if our party’s National chairman do the needful while visiting the state, there would be less acrimony.

He urged Oshiomhole, government functionaries and political office holders to observe protocols while visiting the state.

This, he said, would ensure their security and guard against unjust attack.
