Former Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party Board of Trustees, Tony Anenih, has ‘forgiven’ Adams Oshiomhole; his ‘political son’ and the Edo State Governor.
A statement released on Monday, by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Peter Okhiria, quoted Anenih to have spoken during the 10th anniversary of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, Uromi, in Esan North-East Local Government Area of the state.
Anenih said it became necessary to forgive all those who have offended him after a recent medical experience.
The PDP leader said: “I was in St. Paul’s Church in Benin and as my son, Comrade Adams, said, we were all there to appreciate the efforts of the archbishop. I want to say this; it is not because Adams is here.”
“Last (Friday) night, I was telling my wife that I met Adams in the church and, with my immediate medical experience, I have decided to forgive all those who offended me. And I specifically mentioned Adams.”
“Adams, without you saying it, I have forgiven you. As you said, when you were in the labour president, you were my son and you know it. You came into politics and you remain my son. So, the common cook that used to cook ‘ogbono’ soup for us is still there.”
