Adams Oshiomhole, former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, has declared that his support for the governorship aspiration of Godwin Obaseki in 2016 was partisan.
Oshiomole stated that he sold a bad product to Edo State people in 2016 because he wanted to ensure the continuity of his projects and programmes.
Oshiomhole stated these on Sunday at the Government Reservation Area, Benin, while addressing members of the APC.
He said, “Obaseki is MoU (Memoranda of Understanding) governor, but Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is a man of God, who will ensure good governance in Edo State from November 12 this year.
“I have made my honest mistakes. Only God is perfect. I am now 68 years old. I have come to apologise for the mistake of supporting Obaseki in 2016. I am in Edo State to repair my mistakes.
“Obaseki has abused the trust of Edo people. With our permanent voter cards, we shall punish Obaseki on September 19. Ize-Iyamu will not repeat the mistakes of Obaseki. Ize-Iyamu will take Edo State to the next level.”
Earlier, Ize-Iyamu alleged that Obaseki had not done well in almost four years as governor of the state and had lost focus.
