Again Obaseki mocks Oshiomhole asking ‘who’s having the last laugh?’
Smarting from the successful chairing of a crucial meeting involving President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet and political leaders from the South South, Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has mocked the embattled Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Obaseki had chaired the meeting on Thursday night which was attended by the political leaders from the South South geopolitical zone, the zone of the embattled Chairman and had all the stakeholders, members of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, including the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire from Edo State in attendance.
The Governor who has been at loggerhead with Oshiomhole delivered the communique which all but sealed the fate of his predecessor who was once his geopolitical buddy.
After the communique, Governor Obaseki, in a video shown to Daily Mail was seen beaming with smiles, mocking Oshiomhole to two unidentified men.
The Governor said, “Don’t you look at him? Where could he be now? I wonder why some people don’t understand this game.
“I don’t know who’s having the last laugh now. If you see him, ask, ‘who’s having the last laugh now’.”
The short video footage was shot immediately after the delivering of the communique but the aide refused a copy to be made when Daily Mail requested for it.
In the communique, it was resolved that the party’s national Deputy secretary, Chief Victor Giadom be made the Acting Secretary.
The meeting also endorsed the National Executive Council, NEC, meeting scheduled for Tuesday 17. The Oshiomhole’s camp has been kicking against the meeting as sources say his fate would finally be decided on that day even before the court decides pending cases with regards to his position as Chairman.
Daily Mail reports that Obaseki had soon after Oshiomhole’s suspension mocked the embattled Chairman, dancing and saying “peace has been restored to the party.”
He had as well told an aide “there’s no way back for him now,” while referring to Oshiomhole in an aside after a stakeholder’s meeting in Edo State.
