FALLOUT OF SWEEPERS' PROTEST: Gov Obaseki fires Commissioner

Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki has denied any rumoured rift between himself and the national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.

Governor Obaseki who made that much known on Monday while speaking with newsmen shortly after a closed-door meeting with the leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Edo North senatorial district of the state, also noted that the people of the state were happy with what he had done well, especially in the area of basic infrastructure.

He said; “I have gone round the state, Edo South, Edo Central and Edo North, to speak with the leaders of the party and the feedback I am getting shows that there are no issues in the party.

“There are some few people who are trying to jostle for positions they hope are available in Abuja and try to call it favour.

“As far as I am concerned, we have one and a solid united party. We have all agreed that as government, we have done well and the people are happy with us”, he said.

The APC in Edo North senatorial district of the state had sent a warning to Obaseki on his perceived attempt to tarnish the image of Oshiomhole.

They said they had noticed that Obaseki’s media team has embarked on a campaign of calumny against Oshiomhole with a view to joining his political opponents across the nation in scandalizing his name.

The leaders in a communiqué on Sunday, signed by High Chief Aloye, Chief (Alhaji) Usman Mogaji Charlton and Ahmed Musa Momoh said any attempt by Obaseki and his media team to move against Oshimhole in the state will not be tolerated.
