Adams oshiomhole and obaseki

Godwin Obaseki succeeded Oshiomole as the governor of edo state. Adams Oshiomhole called Godwin Obaseki the “brain and creativity” behind his administration in Edo State and anointed him as his successor. Obaseki became governor in 2016, while Oshiomhole became the national chairman of their party, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). However, things got sour between them along the line.

The first casualty was Oshiomhole whose suspension by his local ward in Edo State, reportedly under the manipulation of the governor, was used in persuading a court to suspend him from office as the national chairman of the party.

Obaseki would later get his own bitter pills when he was disqualified from the APC governorship primary for alleged inconsistencies in his academic credentials, a plot some observers believe was scripted by Mr Oshiomhole.

Ultimately, Mr Obaseki defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), where he immediately renewed his bid for re-election
