This Plot by Obaseki seemed to have won him the 2nd round of his battle with Oshiomole as the game plot of who is to fly the APC Governorship flag in Edo state between Obaseki the incumbent and Adams Oshiomole’s plot to bring in a new man to the beat.
Daily Watch Sources confirmed that though Obaseki camp has succeeded in blocking Oshiomole’s Plot it has not stopped the APC National Working Committee to condemn the act of Obaseki and even was toying with the idea of suspending the Edo State governor but for the fear of Obaseki moving with the full APC structures in the State and Government machineries to the PDP that aborted the clandestine plot which was canvassed by some members of the APC in Abuja few days after the stunt by Obaseki to spite Oshiomole.
Daily Watch attempts to get Oshiomole’s Media man to speak on the stunt by the docile and highly discipline Obaseki who was once described by followers of Oshiomole as a small nut to deal with was not possible as at Press time as the Spokes person refused to respond to several messages to his phone.
