The Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, has stated that the ex-national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, is only disappointed because of Governor Godwin Obaseki refusal to be used as a proxy in becoming a godfather in the state.
In a statement on Monday, Osagie said the harsh criticism by Oshiomhole was an expression of his frustration over his failure to achieve his goal to govern Edo State for a third term using Obaseki as a tool.
The special adviser said, Oshiomole in 2016 nominated and supported Obaseki with the hidden motive to use Governor Obaseki as a pawn in his game to swindle Edo people and enthrone himself as the ultimate godfather of Edo politics.

He further said that Obaseki’s refusal to trade the interest of the Edo people for the satisfaction of Oshiomhole’s greed is the cause of Oshiomhole’s bitterness which has driven him into sternly pursuing an innocent governor who is trying to do the right thing for his people.
