Currently, there seems to be no love lost between two powerful figures in Edo politics – national chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, and Governor Godwin Obaseki.
At the 17th convocation ceremony of Igbinedion University held recently in Edo, Obaseki was spotted while Oshiomhole was missing.
The chairman of the university, Sir Gabriel Osawaru Igbinedion, is highly respected in Benin, and he has always enjoyed support from Oshiomhole and other top personalities in Nigeria. Hence, the absence of the former Nigeria Labour Congress leader was pretty glaring.
Social Circuit learnt that an invitation was extended to Oshiomhole.
Although why he didn’t make it to the ceremony remains unclear, it has been suggested that it might not be far from his feud with Obaseki. Only last month, Obaseki and Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, were attacked at Oshiomhole’s country home.
