A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State and former Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, Samson Osagie has described the rift between Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu as karma for betraying Adam Oshiomole.
Osagie stated while speaking on the current issues between the Governor and his deputy in an interview recently.
He said what’s happening between the duo is unexpected as they are high driven by ambition and unbridled power mongering.
He said: “You may call it drama, I will call it karma. As far as I’m concerned, what is happening between the first two citizens of Edo State is not unexpected.
“I expect they would come to this level of launching a war against one another, because they were men driven by selfish ambition, arrogance and an unbridled power mongering. I knew from day one that their team would not have it smooth.
“Look at what they did to the former governor (Oshiomhole); if they could do all that to their predecessor, why are you expecting that things will be well with them?
“They must fight each other because they were both driven by ambition and unbridled power mongering. When people occupy public offices and they take power to a level that makes them disloyal and lack humility, they are bound to run into this type of crisis.
” So, it’s karma at play, because there is no scintilla of evidence to show that these people appreciate what the power the Edo people gave them is meant for. You call it drama, but I call it karma.”
