The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, on Monday paid a surprise visit to his predecessor and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, despite the alleged rift between them.
Obaseki, according to a statement, went to greet Oshiomhole, who was at his Iyamho country home with his mother, Hajia Aishetu Oshiomhole, for the Eid-el-Kabir holidays.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communications, Crusoe Osagie, was quoted in the statement as saying that the visit had punctured the claim that Obaseki and Oshiomhole were at loggerheads.
