Obaseki extends olive branch to Oshiomhole, Ize-Iyamu, says “the fight is over”


This position was significant different from the one expressed Tuesday morning in an interview on Arise TV where he threatened to deal with Oshiomhole if he continued to disrupt the political situation of the state.

Obaseki announced might have reconsidered his strategies hours after  when, during a speech on Tuesday after the Independent National Electoral Commission issued him and his deputy, Phillip Shaibu, certificates of return, he waxed conciliatory,  extending hands of fellowship to Oshiomhole and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

In a speech on Tuesday at INEC’s office shortly after collecting his certificate of return, Obaseki said, “To our friends and our brothers on the other side of the divide, we are one family in the pursuit to provide services and public good for our citizens.

“Our citizens have decided that as for now, they trust us more to provide them leadership. It does not mean that they do not have a role to play. It does not mean that they are not part of a family.

“I’m using this opportunity to extend the hand of fellowship to my brother, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, and his other colleagues in the All Progressives Congress to join us and work with us so that we can move Edo forward.

“On a specific note, I want to use this occasion to call on the former chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, that the fight is over and he should come and join in building the house where he was part of laying the foundation.

“We have no malice, the only thing we disagreed on is in the approach in moving Edo forward.”
