Godwin Obaseki, the Edo State Governor, appears to have settled an old score with his predecessor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, following a surprise visit to the former governor’s residence in Benin city during the sallah celebration.
Obaseki demonstrated the virtues of his Sallah message to the Muslim community, saying all citizens should eschew bitterness and rancour and work for the development of the state. He visited the National Chairman of his party, Oshiomhole, and his mother, Hajia Aishatu Oshiomhole, in spite of the rift between them.
During the visit, Governor Godwin Obaseki expressed his delight at the incredible support he received from the Muslim community and reiterated his commitment to the transformation of Edo State and the empowerment of all its people.
Speaking on the surprise visit, Otaru of Auchi commended the governor for taking steps to move the state forward, urging him not to play into the hands of forces of darkness preaching division in the state.
He encouraged the governor to remain prayerful and continue to strive for the interest of the people.
