The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has blamed the media for creating friction between him and Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.
Arising from a meeting with Obaseki at Oshiomhole’s Iyamoh residence in the Estako West Local Government Area of the state, which lasted late into Monday night, Oshiomhole said the rift between him and the governor was the creation of people with personal interests, while he described Obaseki as his brother.
Speaking to journalists after the closed-door meeting, which lasted for about an hour, Oshiomhole said the meeting was not unusual as he was in constant touch with Obaseki.
The APC chairman said, “It is not an unusual visit; the meeting afforded me the opportunity to meet with my brother and with people I have worked with.”
Obaseki also noted that the visit was to celebrate the Islamic holiday with his former boss “There is nothing unusual about this meeting; we decided to come here to celebrate Sallah with my predecessor,” the governor said.
He added that people who thought there was a rift between him and his predecessor should “stop thinking.”
