Governor Godwin Obaseki has stated that his emergency as governor of Edo State was not facilitated by Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Obaseki disclosed this during a meeting by members of the APC in the state towards ratifying the suspension of Oshiomhole.
He said: “I am not an ungrateful person. No one made me governor. I became governor by God’s grace, with the support of many other people. If God had said I would not be governor, no way would I have been a governor. It is wrong for someone to say he made me governor.
“No one gave me money. The funds Oshiomhole initially raised for his governorship ambition was raised by me in Lagos. If I can raise money for him for his election, why would I not be able to raise money for my own election?
“If you came into power on some basic principles, do not expect to change those principles because you have a certain ambition. If you came to power believing no man is God, then the day you start to play God, you will get the consequences.”
