By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Godwin Obaseki, the Edo State Governor, has said that he has no problem with his predecessor in office, Adams Oshiomhole, the incumbent National Chairman of the ruling All progressives Congress (APC), ahead of the state party congress to choose the APC’s flag bearer in forthcoming September Gubernatorial election.
Obaseki was speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
According to the governor, there was no major conflict between him and the national chairman, contrary to widespread belief, saying what they had was a slight tiff on principles, nothing more, adding that the national chairman was trying to take some decisions in the state that he disagreed with, as he felt they were not in the interest of the state.
Obaseki, however, said that discussions were still ongoing on how to best resolve the little misunderstanding between him and the national chairman, as all doors to peace were still open.
On the suggestion in some quarters that President Buhari was not positively disposed to his second term bid, the governor said there was nothing in the president’s demeanour to suggest that he was against his reelection ambition.
