The All Progressives Congress National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, have commenced discussions to end the political rift between them.
This was revealed by Obaseki’s Chief of Staff, Mr Taiwo Akerele, on Sunday while responding to questions from reporters during the celebration of his 44th birthday in Obaseki, Oshiomhole Are In Talks To End Rift, Says Akerele.
He noted that although it was too early to share details, progress had been made and he was sure of a positive outcome
“The Governor getting the ticket is not in contention but we will go into primaries and the party has a formula for it. It can be either consensus or none consensus, whichever it is, Obaseki and Philip are ready. Ordinarily he should be given the right of first refusal.
Oshiomhole and Obaseki are very close; nobody should be deceived even as we speak. But of course, the issue they have is political and it is resolvable.
“The difference they have is political disagreement and it is resolvable; some factors came in and heightened the tension, otherwise this is a very minor thing. Remember, we were in Iyamoh during the Sallah celebration, that was in the middle of the crisis, we were there and we even blamed the media for the whole thing.
“When the time comes, we will invite you just like this and address you.” said Akerele.
