Former governor of Edo state and suspended National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole, says he regrets supporting the candidacy of the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, during the 2016 governorship election.
Oshiomhole while he was governor of Edo state, anointed and supported Obaseki as his successor and went all out to campaign for him. Things have obviously fallen apart between both politicians.
While speaking to some residents of the state on Sunday, July 26, Oshiomhole said he supported the governorship aspiration of Obaseki in 2016 to ensure the continuity of his projects and programs. He however says he regrets it and is apologizing to the state residents.
“I have made my honest mistakes. Only God is perfect. I am now 68 years. I have come to apologize for the mistake of supporting Obaseki in 2016. I am in Edo to repair my mistakes. God had a reason for what happened to Ize-Iyamu in 2016. Leaving as the National Chairman of APC is to give me enough time to correct my errors.
Obaseki has abused the trust of Edo people. With our permanent voter cards, we shall punish Obaseki on September 19. Ize-Iyamu will not repeat the mistakes of Obaseki. Ize-Iyamu will take Edo State to the next level.” he said
