Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has again denied any feud between him and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole.

Obaseki, who spoke during an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the annual convention of Usagbe Club of Nigeria in Abuja on Saturday.

Obaseki said, “I do not have a feud with the national chairman. There are political issues in Edo which have been resolved. As far as we are concerned, they are not major issue. We have a House of Assembly that has been inaugurated. A few members have not accepted to be inaugurated.

“I am sure when they get inaugurated, the issues will be settled. What is happening is not usual. These are matters in court, let the court adjudicate. I am not an expert in constitutional law.”

“If you understand what happened in Edo in 2006, the non-state actors had become empowered by the political class, they were collecting revenues, they were essentially determining things. They were an alternate government. They constituted themselves into an army that was used for political activities but as a government that is  interested in attracting investments, we had to ensure that we focus on law and order and strengthen the state and the state system.
