I Have Forgiven Oshiomhole – Anenih
BEVERLY HILLS, April 25, (THEWILL) – Former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Tony Anenih, has declared that he has forgiven Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, declaring him as his son.
Anenih spoke at the 10th Anniversary of St Anthony's Catholic Church, Edo State, where Governor Oshiomhole and other prominent members were given award for services to the Church.
Anenih noted that his medical experience and immediate health challenges made him to see the need to rise above politics and embrace peace with all men and he has decided to forgive all those who offended him.
“I want to say this, it is not because Adams is here. Last 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,” he said.
“Adams, without you saying it, I have forgiven you. As you said when you were in labour, as 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.”
In his speech, Governor Oshiomhole urged the church to reward those who pay widows mite to build the church rather than wealthy individuals and praised the Catholic Church for bringing people of different political persuasions together under one roof for the Church programme.
“For me, the church has caused all of us to reunite in the State. So, I reunite with my daddy Chief Tony Anenih and several other PDP leaders and APC leaders. And the Catholic Church brought together the national Chairman of APC sitting side-by-side with the national leader of PDP,” he said.
“May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ continue to moderate our actions and remind us of our oneness, of our commonality and of our shared commitment to work together to uplift our state and our great nation.”
