See What Obaseki Said About Tony Kabaka That Got People Talking


Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, Tuesday in Benin, said he has no regrets whatsoever in forgiving Tony Adun, the All Progressives Congress (APC) youth leader in the state.

Obaseki’s reaction was coming on the heels of social media comments that trailed the Christmas gift of a cow and bags of rice to Adun, popularly known as Kabaka after he begged the governor for forgiveness.

In his words “Since last night, I have been hearing lots of comments that I gave cow and rice to Kabaka. I read some people who said they are my supporters and I felt bad. I say they are not my supporters.

“This is Christmas, we are celebrating Christ, the basis of our Christianity and religion. Before politics, we are human beings, so if we cannot show humanity, then we will not be humble politicians.

“If a grandfather can come out in the social media to beg for forgiveness, go to church and begged for forgiveness, who am I not to forgive the person.

“I am a mere mortal. I am governor today because of God, so if I now play God I am not sure God will forgive me”, he said.

He said those commenting on social media can go ahead, adding that they are not Christians and they are not leaders.

Obaseki said that he was trying to be magnanimous in victory by bringing everyone together, irrespective of their political party affiliation.

Earlier, Sen. Matthew Urhoghide, representing Edo South had urged PDP members to be loyal to the governor, saying politics is a game of numbers.
