Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has hailed the ruling of the Federal High Court Abuja that suspended the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, saying that ruling had shown that no man is God.
The governor said the problem he had with the APC national chairman was that he (Oshiomhole) failed to heed his advice to denounce the Edo Peoples Movement, a group supporting the former Edo State governor.
But addressing a crowd in Benin shortly after the ruling, Obaseki said he was not afraid of contesting against anybody, “but they have to do it according to the rules of the game.
“We have learnt a lesson and today is a new era in Edo State. I am saying this with all sense of responsibility considering where the party has come from,” he said.
The Obaseki- backed chairman, Anselm Ojezua, said it was a great day for the people of the state and the party that the Abuja High Court had finally suspended Oshiomhole.
