The governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has blasted the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole, of telling lies.
The governor insisted on the claimed he made, that Oshiomole nominated all the commissioners for him in 2016.
This came as the war of words hit the duo on their crisis for supremacy deepened.
Obaseki said on the contrary, Comrade Oshiomole single-handedly, picked the deputy governor and the Secretary to the State Government.
Daily Tells recalls that Oshiomole had debunked the rumour of him trying to create God fatherism in the state politics.
Oshiomole said: My own embarrassment is when they say Oshiomhole wants to be like a godfather.
“If I wanted to be, I will be nominating commissioners. I only persuaded him to accept one commissioner from me, only one and I gave my reasons. He was a founding member of my campaign organisation in 2006, Mika. Other than Mika, I did not nominate any commissioner; I did not nominate any special adviser, special assistant because for me these are governance issues. So where is the godfather from?”obas
His statement: “We are once again forced to call the attention of members of the public to Comrade Oshiomhole’s ability to compulsively falsify the facts.
He took Oshiomole to cleaners, referred to him as a big liar.
Special Adviser to Obaseki on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie insisted that Oshiomole compiled the list of Commissioners to his boss in his living room.
“The ease with which he lies, especially on issues that are public knowledge, underscores the content of his character and portends an existential threat to the survival of the APC and the impeccable integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is forced to continuously engage with Comrade Oshiomhole being the national chairman of his party.
“If indeed Oshiomhole appointed only Mika Amanokha to Governor Obaseki’s cabinet, why then did the former governor scream to the high heavens and embark on vitriolic media attacks against Obaseki when the governor reshuffled his cabinet, taking out some persons who were sabotaging the administration at the behest of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“In fact, Comrade Oshiomhole compiled the list of those to be appointed commissioners in Edo in his sitting room in 2016, asides picking the governor, his deputy and the SSG.”
