Ahead of the September 19, 2020 governorship election in Edo state, former governor of the state and suspended National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomole, says he regrets supporting the candidacy of the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, during the 2016 governorship election.
Oshiomole who was the state governor, anointed and supported Obaseki as his successor and went all out to campaign for him. Things have since fallen apart between both politicians.
Speaking to some residents of the state on Sunday, July 26, Oshiomole said he supported the governorship aspiration of Obaseki in 2016 to ensure the continuity of his projects and programs. He however says he regrets it and is apologising to the state residents.
“I have made my honest mistakes. Only God is perfect. I am now 68 years. I have come to apologise for the mistake of supporting Obaseki in 2016. I am in Edo to repair my mistakes. God had a reason for what happened to Ize-Iyamu in 2016. Leaving as the National Chairman of APC is to give me enough time to correct my errors.
Obaseki has abused the trust of Edo people. With our permanent voter cards, we shall punish Obaseki on September 19. Ize-Iyamu will not repeat the mistakes of Obaseki. Ize-Iyamu will take Edo State to the next level.” he said
