Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has revealed why he forgave the All Progressives Congress (APC) youth leader in the state, Tony Adun who is better known as Tony Kabaka.
Gatekeepers News reports that Obaseki, while addressing People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in Oredo Local Government Area on Tuesday, said he forgave Tony Kabaka because he is “a mere mortal.”
The Governor was reacting to comments over the Christmas gifts; a cow and bags of rice, he sent to Tony Kabaka who recently begged for his forgiveness.
“I read some people who said they are my supporters and I felt bad. I say they are not my supporters.”
The Governor noted that Christmas is the celebration of Christ, the basis of Christianity and religion.
He added that politicians are human beings and must be humble and show humanity.
“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 added.
Obaseki further stated that he remained magnanimous in victory, bringing everyone together irrespective of their party.
