‘Obaseki Sacked The Only Commissioner I Nominated In His Cabinet’ – Oshiomhole


The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams
Oshiomhole, says the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, sacked the
only commissioner he nominated into his cabinet.

Oshiomhole, who is the immediate past governor of Edo State, said this during an interview on Channels Television on Saturday.

He
said the irony was that Obaseki took the drastic action after a
reconciliatory meeting which was attended by some APC stalwarts
including Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State.

The APC chairman
said, “We have no argument over money or appointment… In the meeting we
held with four governors, including Governor Bagudu, I asked the
governor, how many commissioners I nominated into his cabinet. He agreed
that I only nominated one person out of more than 20 commissioners.

“Not
many Nigerians will believe that because for me I was out of government
and I have convinced myself that the day I step out of government, that
is it. After that first meeting, the governor decided to remove that
one commissioner along with seven others. But that is not my business.”

Oshiomhole,
who has been at loggerheads with his successor in the last couple of
months, said he was also disturbed that Obaseki decided to abandon some
of his projects.

The former, however, assured his successor that he was not under any threat.

He
said, “The governor can never tell you that I have interfered in his
choice of projects and so on. The only thing I feel a bit worried about
is that some of the projects we started together have been abandoned.
There is no way to solve disagreements without talking to the aggrieved
parties.

“Let me assure you. This governor is not under threat.
It is those who make money from crisis, those I call merchants of
confusion, who can tell the governor that he wants to be impeached. What
will I gain if Godwin does not run a second term?”

Obaseki and
Oshiomhole’s feud deepened in June when the former issued a letter of
proclamation for the inauguration of the House of Assembly.

The
inauguration subsequently took place at night in the absence of
lawmakers loyal to Oshiomhole, thereby making it possible for those
loyal to Obaseki to emerge as presiding officers of the Assembly.

The
move was said to have infuriated Oshiomhole and the APC leadership,
causing the National Assembly to threaten to take over the state
legislature.

Oshiomhole’s brother, Seidu, was also violently attacked during the crisis that ensued.
