Adams Oshiomhole, the Senator representing Edo North Senatorial District and former Governor of Edo State, says the state’s incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki, is still a friend despite their political and party differences.

Oshiomhole stated this during his goodwill message at the ongoing 2023 Alaghodaro Summit in Benin, with the theme “The Edo Story: Creating Shared Opportunities into the Future.”

According to Anaedoonline.ng, the Edo Government, in collaboration with the commercial sector, hosts the Alaghodaro summit each year to commemorate Obaseki’s first year in office.

Speaking at the event, which allows the state government to highlight Obaseki’s administration’s progress, Oshiomhole expressed gratitude to the governor for organising the Alaghodaro summit and inviting him.


The senator noted that it is critical for the rest of the world to understand that he and Obaseki are not adversaries.

Oshiomhole said that being friends does not preclude people from disagreeing or holding opposing viewpoints, but that they must treat themselves with love and care.

He said, “Regardless of what people say, we should not give the impression that different options translate to war.

“People don’t need the tears of leaders joining them to lament but taking bold steps to solve the problem facing the people.

“Having the privilege as a governor, I have high regard for the Office of the Governor and the governor himself.

“To have all the civilian governors elected in the state present here today speaks volumes.


“We definitely belong to different political parties but the sum total of those parties is not equal to Edo State.

“What this means to me is that we can politic differently but never have doubt about the shared commitment to the citizens of the state that should be the greatest in Nigeria.

“The language of leaders matters to followers. What defines democracy is that of ideology, even if we share the same destination but the route to get there may differ, it should not be a matter of war.
