Governor Adams Oshiomhole has not resolved the rift between him and his Deputy Dr. Pius Odubu over the latter’s gubernatorial aspiration.
This is contrary to his disclosure this week that he has resolved all political differences with his deputy, Dr. Pius Odubu.
The relationship between Oshiomhole and his deputy became frosty after the governor supported the Chairman of his Economic Team, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, against Odubu.
The governor was speaking at a reconciliation and thank you party organized for Ward leaders of the All Progressive Congress, where Odubu and majority of his supporters absent and said that they had reconciled.
A‎n aide to the Deputy Governor, Comrade Andrew Izedomwen said the governor was being economical with the truth when he said supporters of Odubu were present at the so-called reconciliation meeting.
He said Edo people were shocked at the naked lies and confessions of the Comrade Governor at the event which featured key party chieftains and stakeholders.
Izedomwen said other than a phone call the Governor made to Odubu, he has not had any meeting with his Deputy on the numerous issues surrounding the controversial Edo APC primaries.
He said while, “ Odubu remains taciturn believing in the infinite powers of the God of justice it’s advisable to let all party members know that he is not a coward and will not in any way tolerate deliberate falsehood about his person”.
“It’s instructive to note that Gov Adams Oshiomhole has done his worst to Odubu and his numerous followers but that there is no way the God of justice will not make recompense for the actions of everyone of us”.
He said, “Odubu at the moment is more worried about the denial of the means of livelihood of many of those who dared to associate with his ambition; he is worried about the humiliation that thugs and heirlings on the payroll of the government in which he is number two were made to pass on him for daring to contest the governorship primaries”.
Odubu, had a day after the primaries informed his supporters that Mr. Obaseki and some of his former friends visited him at home adding that as far as he was concerned, he did not contest with Mr. Godwin Obaseki .
Meanwhile the governor has withdrawn the initial approval given the Edo State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to flagoff the 2016 governorship campaign with Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as its flagbearer.
Scheduled for Monday 4th July, 2016 by 10:00am with Senator Ahmed Markafi, Chairman PDP National Caretaker Committee as Special Guest of Honor, the event will now hold at the Baptist Convention ground in the state capital.
Besides other members of the National Caretaker Committee of the Party PDP members of the National Campaign Council for the Edo State Gubernatorial Election which has Senator Ike Ekweremadu, CFR -as Chairman will also be at this Spock-making event.
