Gov. Oshiomhole, Chief Anenih Reconcile

Edo State Gov. Adams Oshiomhole and PDP Chieftain Chief Tony Anenih on Sunday in public agreed to reconcile with each other after being at war for years.

It will be recalled that Gov. Oshiomhole last year’s December in an interview called on the former Chairman, Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Tony Anenih, to return the N260m allegedly shared to him by the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, from the $2.1 billion Abacha loot meant for arms purchase to fight terrorism in parts of the country.

“We have seen even the godfather’s name being mentioned. Even at old age, he collected N260m, and I want the godfather to deny or to confirm it. If he wants to refund the money, I will collect it from him and I will go to Abuja without deducting anything from it, and I will hand it over to President Muhammadu Buhari,” Gov. Oshiomhole said then.

But on Sunday at the 10th year canonisation of Saint Anthony Catholic Church Uromi, where the warring duo and many other personalities including former Delta State governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, ex-works minister, Arc. Mike Onolemhemhen and Chief Tomi Ikimi were given awards by the church, Gov. Oshiomhole held out olive branch to Chief Anenih and other Peoples Democratic Party chieftains while receiving his award.

He said: “I thank the church for the award and i urge you to confer such honour on common people like church workers and teacher. Am equally grateful for this occasion because it has given me a platform to reunite with PDP chieftains like Chief Anenih, the time has come for us to reunite and build Edo State together.”

His peace move was embraced by Chief Anenih in his award acceptance speech.

“Gov. Oshiomhole, you are my son, you are my brother, have agreed to reconcile forget our political differences and our disagreements and arguements over the years,” Chief Anenih said
