by Ehi Ekhator
The management tussle of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State took a dramatic turn on Saturday after a former governorship aspirant, Hon. Blessing Agbomhere accused&#a hundred and sixty;the former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole of blackmailing the governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki to acquire the place of the celebration leader.
Agbomhere added that Oshiomhole had appointed the deputy governor, Mr. Philip Shaiubu and the Secretary to the State&#one hundred sixty;executive (SSG) for Obaseki.
the previous governor who had fought in opposition to godfatherrism is now himself the only godfather within the state, stressed out the aggrieved Agbomhere who mentioned he can’t sit and watch Oshiomhole take over the government as he (Oshiomhole)does not have the academic, ethical and political credentials.
In an previous commentary via the previous governorship aspirant, he stated “Oshiomhole will not be and cannot be Edo State APC chief. I admonish the entire individuals of Edo APC to omit the rumor. Who was the leader of Edo APC when Adams Oshiomhole was once Governor of Edo State?
“Edo APC shouldn’t be bereaved of authentic and patriotic leaders. where now we have Prince Tony Momoh, a former Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and former Chairman of the defunct Congress for revolutionary trade (CPC) and His Excellency, Chief John Oyegun, no sane man will go away these learned, erudite and finished leaders and fathers with their mental, mental and moral sagacity to decide on Adams as Edo State APC chief.”
conversing with NAIJA heart news, Agbomhere persevered that no matter Oshiomhole is doing is towards the foundations the APC used to be built on.
He denied having private grudges in opposition to the former governor, who in keeping with him is imposing himself on the state realizing totally neatly that the present governor cannot defend himself as a result of the tribunal case.
He stated: “the reality of the difficulty is that i am the leader of retailer Edo group, and in the event you look at it very smartly, proper from the inception of Oshiomhole coming to Edo State, I was once part of his team, I supported him. i can inform you that i believed in Oshiomhole’s agenda and that i promoted him.
“but alongside the road, i’ve all the time recommended him. at this time, what he is doing may be very wrong within the system of our party. while at today in Edo State, we made it clear that the governor should be the leader of the celebration because when you’ve got a governor that is break away the chief of the state, there shall be a number of concerns because the chief will probably be impeding on the ability of the governor. For team spirit of objective and oneness of management, let the governor entrance the celebration in an instant.
“however nowadays, Oshiomhole is blackmailing the governor of Edo State and nobody desires to talk. He was&#one hundred sixty;the governor and he had&#one hundred sixty;left. allow us to suppose that he&#one hundred sixty;contributed and supported&#a hundred and sixty; to make Obaseki the new governor.&#a hundred and sixty;After that he appointed the deputy governor, then appointed the SSG&#a hundred and sixty;and appointed the executive security Officer and no person stated anything else, who would do that in government?
“Now as we talk, he has&#a hundred and sixty;pressured the identical governor to nominate him&#one hundred sixty;because the leader of the party as a result of he&#one hundred sixty;wants to be serving to him take care of the political issues whereas he (Obaseki) must concentrates on the economic system. in any case these, he&#a hundred and sixty;is now announcing he&#one hundred sixty;need to be the one to reveal the entire commissioners, there must be commissioners in his govt, and because the governor has a case within the courtroom (the tribunal case), he’s not able to take the danger that Osunbor took that made Anenih to struggle him.
“Now Oshiomhole is now doing what he preached against. He informed every person there’s no godfatherism. What he has merely executed is that he is now the godfather of Edo State.
“When Oshiomhole used to be the governor, he was once the leader of the birthday celebration. in addition to him, we had Tom Ikhimi, Chief Odigie Oyegun, and Tony Momoh and Oshiomhole used to be the main chief as a result of he was once the governor. He decided so many things because he was once the leader.&#one hundred sixty; We fought Anenih as a result of he was dictating to lucky Igbinedion and that was why Igbinedion’s government failed.
“That was once why when Oshiomhole was once coming in, the primary particular person he encountered used to be Tony Anenih and he made him understand he can’t be the chief of Edo State as a result of there is nothing like that in&#a hundred and sixty;the constitution. today the same Oshiomhole is asking to be appointed as the chief of APC in Edo State, and that is double same old.
“because the leader of the celebration, he would resolve what happens within the birthday party, &#a hundred and sixty;resolve who gets or don’t get appointment in the birthday party.
“I can’t fold my fingers and watch Oshiomhole practising what he had preached towards. Oshiomhole didn’t purchase Edo State for a cost that he can start to determine what took place in Edo. He contested with Edo folks resources, by so doing; he can’t be given that proper to decide the future of the entire folks in Edo State. Oshiomhole resisted all of the godfathers &#a hundred and sixty;and now he desires to be the one godfather.”
On whereas&#a hundred and sixty;Obaseki shouldn’t be responding in individual, Blessing said Obsaeki was once the one who introduced that Oshiomhole is now the leader of the party. &#one hundred sixty;He including that“the one that is supposed to be fighting in the meanwhile has a case in court docket. Oshiomhole is blackmailing Obaseki. The governor believes that he desires Oshiomhole’s beef up and he is using that to blackmail him.
” In Nigeria, it has by no means took place sooner than that a governor would take&#a hundred and sixty; a deputy governor, secretary to the state govt from the previous governor, it doesn’t occur since the Secretary to the State govt is in control of the entire correspondence that comes and goes out of the state. He knows the amount of kobo that&#one hundred sixty;is available in and goes out of the state. Don’t you recognize that there is a purpose?
“are you aware that the Deputy Governor and The Secretary to the federal government reside in the same house in Benin? this means that if they need to impeach Obaseki, they may be able to do it easily. Oshiomhole has positioned himself in charge so now he knows everything that’s taking place within the state, he gets alert on each transactions that occurs in every debts of government in Edo State which is improper.”
