Edo state Governor Godwin Obaseki has revealed how he contributed in helping his predecessor Adams Oshiomhole become governor for eight years.


Obaseki who spoke shortly after submitting his nomination form in Abuja, party’s national secretariat, ahead of APC governorship primary election in Edo told Journalists, “In life everybody get helped, everybody get assisted. The person you talked about (Oshiomhole) had no money when he left Labour to contest. We knew what we did to make him governor. I sacrificed eight years of my life probono, I collected no Kobo to serve him (Oshiomhole) in Edo. 

“Today we know what we have built because of where we started from. So when you talk of betrayal, the biggest betrayal can be when people betray a cause, when they betray an idea. That is the greatest betrayal of all. It is like betraying God. When you said to God, this is what I stand for and then God gives you power then you turn around and do the exact opposite. There is no greater betrayal than that. So when you talk about betrayal let us be very clear. I want to put it on record that I am grateful, he assisted me just as I assisted him. I know the sacrifices we made to make him National Chairman. So what are we talking about?” 

Oshiomhole is currently All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman.

He has been at loggerhead with Obaseki shortly after handing power to him.
