A former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, says the Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki remains his close brother and friend, despite their rift.

Oshiomhole’s declaration comes barely two years after he clashed with the incumbent governor during the electioneering campaign for his second term ticket.

Oshiomhole disclosed this during an interview with The Punch on Friday, he noted that despite their reported frosly relationship, Obaseku remained his close brother and friend.

He said, “For me, I have moved on. Obaseki remains my brother and friend. I have had the honour of working with him and God in his infinite power used me to ensure that he became the governor of Edo State.

“Sometimes, God wants us to know that He is the only one that is all-knowing. He is the only one who knows the beginning and the end. When, as human beings, everything seems to add up, we celebrate our intellect. But sometimes, God intervenes just for us to know that we don’t know it all and it is meant to remind us of our limited knowledge of life. He remains my brother and friend.

“When I was governor and he worked under me, my relationship with him was not that of boss and subordinate. He was one of the very few who called me by my nickname. When we travelled together on foreign trips, we didn’t book different suites in a hotel. Instead, we shared the same suite in a hotel but slept in separate rooms. That’s how close we were,” Oshiomhole said.
