Edo govt speaks on Obaseki, Oshiomhole’s rumoured face-off
Edo State Government has debunked speculations of hostility between Governor Godwin Obaseki and his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole is the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Paul Ohonbamu, the Commissioner for Information, spoke in reaction to the controversy surrounding the inauguration of the Edo State House of Assembly.
According to him, it was in line with the legitimate expectations of the people.
He also said that the action shows that the state government was a democratic administration.
Ohonbamu said: “There is no fight between the APC National Chairman and the governor.
“As a matter of fact, both of them are on talking terms”.
Meanwhile, the new Speaker, Rt Hon. Frank Okiye, has promised to work with both executive and the judiciary arm of the government.
Okiye, who was sworn in amid protest, said: “The business of lawmaking as it concerns legislating dealings is very precise.
“We will make sure we don’t allow the gap between the house members and their constituents exist anymore.
