Charles Idahosa, the Political Adviser to ex-governor Adams Oshiomhole, has alleged that his former boss was jealous and being envious of Governor Godwin Obaseki’s achievements in the state.
Mr Idahosa, who made the allegation while addressing journalists in Benin City on his 66th birthday, said there was no end in sight as far as All progressives Congress’ crisis is concerned in the state.
He said: “Obaseki’s record is so intimidating, making Oshiomhole’s achievements look ordinary, so he is jealous.”
He, however, urged the duo to try and settle their differences because “Oshiomhole brought Obaseki and everything he (Obaseki) has done is at his doorstep.”
The APC chieftain who also accused the party’s national chairman of undermining the governor in recommending two persons for appointment into the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, board.
According to him, Mr Oshiomhole “continuously wants be the governor of the state when his tenure was over.”
“I warned Oshiomhole that Obaseki will face him after dealing with the party leaders. So, when the thing now started happening, he is shouting.
“We politicians are angry because Oshiomhole pampered us with money and contracts, but Obaseki is not ready to give politicians money”, Mr Idahosa said.
