Obaseki: “No One Made Me Governor” (Photos) by Priscy01(f): 7:33am On Nov 14, 2019
As the crisis within the APC in Edo state deepens, Governor Godwin Obaseki, the state governor, yesterday denied claims made by supporters of his predecessor and APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole, that the latter facilitated his emergence as governor of the state.

Obaseki denied the claims at a meeting organised by members of the APC in the state to ratify the suspension of Oshiomole from the party. He stressed that no one made him a governor and that his emergence as a governor is by the grace of God.

Speaking at the meeting, Obaseki who has been in a running battle with Oshiomole, the APC National Chairman, said he is not happy with the recent political developments in the state, especially the disruptions from a once-trusted leader who has thrown caution to the wind to cause disaffection among APC members in the state.

While speaking to the party faithfuls, the governor said when he first met Oshiomhole 12 years ago, they shared a common interest in salvaging Edo State but all that has changed in recent times.

"I am not an ungrateful person. No one made me governor. I became governor by God’s grace, with the support of many other people. If God had said I would not be governor, no way would I have been a governor. It is wrong for someone to say he made me governor.

“No one gave me money. The funds Oshiomhole initially raised for his governorship ambition was raised by me in Lagos. If I can raise money for him for his election, why would I not be able to raise money for my own election.

If you came into power on some basic principles, do not expect to change those principles because you have certain ambition. If you came to power believing no man is God, then the day you start to play God, you will get the consequences.” Obaseki said.

This man is very courageous and fiery. I think Edo people are behind him that's why... Just like when Ortom was fighting against Godfatherism in Benue state. Ambode couldn't do jack because people were against him unlike Obaseki. God willing, he will surely succeed.

As this battle unfolds, we shouldn't just watch without a 'take home pack'. As for me, the contents of my pack are: 1) Gentility is not stupidity 2) Respect is not fear 3) Power intoxicates unguided mind Others, yet to be unwrapped.

If you spend your time discussing Nigerian politics, you aren't discussing the behaviour of intelligent people. One reason why I stopped doing it.

As much Oshiomole is over zealous and domineering,

Obaseki shouldn't bite the finger that feed him

Self made governor?
Nobody voted for you.
You just magically and mysterious became governor.
Pride pride pride.
Remember that tenure will one day come to an end.

Ride on Mr. Governor...... This Adams was the same person criticizing the ruling party then for godfatherism and candidate imposition. sadly, he is the same person doing the same now......what an hypocrite.....

To d mods, pls attend swiftly to members who post adult materials on this platform. This is not a private site, it is a public forum and its becoming uneasy for one to open nairaland in the public because of these embarrassing materials.

So, Oshiomole finally went mad in his bid to copy Alhaji Bullion Van.... Oyegun will be laughing himself silly now. grin

As for the liberated stooge (Obaseki), he should just stfu, and work harder to win the electorate to his side...
