I Have Forgiven Kabaka -Obaseki
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has said he has forgiven Tony Kabaka, the youth leader of the All Progressives Congress in the state.
Kabaka had recently begged Obaseki for forgiveness, with the governor in turn showing he has forgiven him by donating a cow and bags of rice as Christmas gift to him.
While addressing People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in his Oredo Local Government Area of the state, Obaseki revealed he had no choice but to forgive Kabaka.
According to him, “Since last night, I have been hearing lots of comments that I gave cow and rice to Kabaka. I read some people who said they are my supporters and I felt bad. I say they are not my supporters.
“This is Christmas, we are celebrating Christ, the basis of our Christianity and religion. Before politics, we are human beings, so if we cannot show humanity, then we will not be humble politicians.
“If a grandfather can come out in the social media to beg for forgiveness, go to church and begged for forgiveness, who am I not to forgive the person.
“I am a mere mortal. I am Governor today because of God, so if I now play God I am not sure God will forgive me”, he said.
