Charles Idahosa, a chieftain of All Progressives Congress in Edo State, has said that the party chairman, Adams Oshiomhole is playing godfather role in the politics of the state.
Idahosa made this known in reaction to Oshiomhole’s comment in which he denied playing the role of a godfather in Edo politics.
According to him, “Oshiomhole brought Governor Godwin Obaseki to us and told us that he was the engine of his administration; and today, Governor Obaseki has lived up to our expectations and has actually exceeded the expectations of millions of Edo people,” he said.
“Oshiomhole chose the deputy governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu; he imposed all the commissioners on Governor Obaseki and chose the Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie. So, what is Oshiomhole denying?” he asked.
The former political adviser to Comrade Oshiomhole further said: “Currently we have an Oshiomhole in Edo State Oil and Gas Producing Area Development Commission (EDSOGPADEC), another Oshiomhole in Edo State House of Assembly, not to talk off his own mother’s brother’s children.
“If an idea does not come from Oshiomhole it is rubbish. He claims he knows everything. Enough is enough of his high handedness.”
Idahosa added: “Oshiomhole chose the local government chairmen in the 18 local councils of the state as well as most of the members of the state house of assembly. The current crisis in the state assembly happened because he seems to be losing his hold on the politics of the state. He is guilty of what he accused former governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, of doing.”
