Edo Godfather allegations embarasses me – Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has dismissed as false allegations that he was playing godfather in Edo State, claiming that he made numerous efforts to bring peace to the Edo State chapter of the ruling party, APC.

Oshiomole who spoke in a television interview on Friday mentioned that he reconciled the governor with Charles Idahosa, when neither of the warring parties would bury the hatchet.

He cited Rev Egharevba and Prince Eweka as examples of other party stalwarts that had conflicts with the governor and he had to intervene.

He further said, “My own embarrassment is when they say Oshiomhole wants to be like a godfather. If I wanted to be, I will be nominating commissioners. I only persuaded him to accept one commissioner from me, only one and I gave my reasons. He was a founding member of my campaign organisation in 2006, Mika. Other than Mika, I did not nominate any commissioner; I did not nominate any special adviser, special assistant because for me these are governance issues. So where is the godfather from?
