National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has accused the media of the feud between him and Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.
Arising from a meeting between the duo at Oshiomhole’s Iyamoh residence in Estako West Local Government Area of the state which dragged late into the night of Monday, the APC chairman said the media was guilty of creating factions between them for their gains.
Governor Obaseki, who had appeared in company with his wife, Betsy Obaseki at the ISO venue of the reception in honor of the 80th birthday of the former APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, had hurriedly left his wife to attend the meeting with Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole, who talked after the gathering said the fracture among himself and his successor, Obaseki was the production of individuals with individual intrigue similarly as he depicted Obaseki as his sibling.
Addressing columnists after the shut entryway meeting, Oshiomhole said the gathering was not surprising as he was in steady touch with Representative Obaseki.
“Every now and then, we have consistently been meeting. It’s anything but a bizarre visit, the gathering managed me the chance to meet with my sibling and with individuals I have worked with.”
He said tragically the media preferred making groups for their very own increases.
Obaseki additionally noticed that the visit to his forerunner was not surprising, saying that he chose to observe Sallah with his previous supervisor.
He said the visit was to observe Edo pioneers similarly as the previous APC national administrator, Boss John Odigie-Oyegun, was praised by the state before 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 think there was a rift between him and his predecessor should stop thinking so.
