Godwin Obaseki, Governor of Edo State, has debunked reports of an existing rift between him and Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), over his purported second term bid.
Governor Obaseki cleared the air at Benin Airport upon his arrival from his vacation on Wednesday.
Stories had circulated on social media recently, implying that Oshiomhole and his successor were at loggerheads over the latter’s plan to return to Government House, Benin, in 2020.
However, Governor Obaseki described the stories as “fake news.”
He, instead, asked on the citizens and residents of the state to engage the government on how it could uplift their situation rather than be pre-occupied with rumours.
The governor said the Edo people should expect more “wake and see” as he had returned refreshed, feeling good, and ready to continue to deliver good governance to the people of the state.
Obaseki, who was accompanied by his wife, Betsy, arrived at the Benin airport at 11.30am.
Phillip Shaibu, the state’s Deputy Governor; Osarodion Ogie, Secretary to the state government; Kabiru Adjoto, Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly; Taiwo Akerele, Chief of Staff to the governor, all the 18 local government chairmen and some APC leaders were among officials who received Obaseki.
