Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, on Tuesday said he holds no grudge against suspended APC Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
Obaseki said this while receiving his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The Edo Governor asked Oshiomhole to join him in building Edo State, adding that the fight is not over.
“On a specific note, I want to use this occasion to remind the former National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole that the fight is not over, to come and join in building the house where he was part of laying the foundation.
“We have no malice; the only thing we disagreed on is on the approach in moving Edo forward.’’
Governor Obaseki was re-elected on Saturday after scoring the highest number of votes and defeating his closest rival, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Meanwhile, the leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has claimed that his prophecies about the Edo State governorship election ensured victory for Godwin Obaseki of the PDP.
Primate Ayodele had consistently spoken out on issues around the Edo State election.
One of his prophecies was that there will be a fight between Obaseki and a former National Chairman of the APC Adams Oshiomhole that will affect his second term ambition with the APC.
He had also prophesied that Oshiomhole will not see 2023 as the national chairman of the APC.
He also said it was revealed to him that Obaseki was ordained to win the election but he only needs to work against manipulation
“Without mincing words, this is what the Lord said, Obaseki should be focused, do all the needful things, Obaseki will win, not Ize Iyamu, excepts APC rigs and anyone who rigs will die, just as I said COVID-19 will kill those who corrupted Nigeria,” he said.
In a statement on Tuesday, Ayodele said his prophecy has “just been fulfilled as he put it but that it was worthy of note that the words put Obaseki on serious alert,” he said.
He added that, “These prophecies also helped the people of Edo to have a direction of what God wants for them in the election, which in turn made them vote massively for Godwin Obaseki.
“It is evident that Godwin Obaseki worked seriously against every form of manipulation in the election, videos were seen where he was personally searching vehicles against stolen ballot boxes.”
