Oshiomole Blames The Media For Rift With Gov Obaseki

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has blamed the media for the rift between him and his successor, Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Oshiomhole who described Obaseki as his brother, said the alleged rift between himself and the Governor was the creation of people with personal interest.

The APC national chairman said this on Monday night while receiving Obaseki, who led members of his cabinet to celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir Festival with him at his Iyamoh residence in Estako West Local Government Area of the state.

Speaking with journalists after a closed-door meeting which lasted for about an hour, Oshiomhole said the meeting was not unusual as he was in constant touch with Obaseki.

“From time to time, we have always been meeting. It is not an unusual visit, the meeting afforded me the opportunity to meet with my brother and with people I have worked with,” Oshiomhole said.

He added that it was unfortunate that the media liked creating factions for their own gain.

On his part, Obaseki noted that the visit to his predecessor was not unusual, saying that he decided to celebrate Sallah with his former boss.

He said the visit was to celebrate Edo leaders just as the former APC national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, was celebrated by the state earlier in the day.

“There is nothing unusual about this meeting; today is Sallah and we have just finished celebrating with the former APC national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun in Benin City, and we decided to come here to celebrate Sallah with my predecessor,” the governor said.

He added that people who thought there was a rift between him and his predecessor should stop thinking.



  1. Obaseki is the architect of his own misfortune. Keep bowing to Oshiomole and he will keep stepping on your head

  2. what could have caused the quarrel other than the demand by the godfather to receive regular settlements from state funds just as is being done in Lagos state. Any refusal by the governor to play ball will ensure all hell is let loose.
