Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki has named the Labour House after his predecessor and former benefactor, Senator Adams Oshiomhole.

This was on Monday at the formal unveiling and commissioning of the House, in Benin City by the Governor with Oshiomhole as special guest.

The Presidents of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) are also among the guests.

Oshiomhole, a former NLC President, fell off with Obaseki, his godson and anointed successor in the Edo 2016 gubernatorial election, during the 2020 re-election polls.

However, both men have been seen lately at public events with the governor repeatedly inviting Oshiomhole to state functions and honoring him.

Some believe that the move is to spite Obaseki’s estranged former deputy, Philip Shaibu, who equally fell out with Oshiomhole, his former godfather, during the Obaseki’s 2020 re-election campaign.

Shaibu was impeached in April this year over irreconcilable differences with Governor Obaseki amid his ambition to succeed his principal (Obaseki) as governor, for alleged perjury and disclosure of government’s secrets.
