Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has denied having issues with some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
He said; “I have gone round the state, Edo South, Edo Central and Edo North, to speak with the leaders of the party and the feedback I am getting shows that there are no issues in the party.”
“There are some few people who are trying to jostle for positions they hope are available in Abuja and try to call it favour.”
“As far as am concerned, we have one and a solid united party. We have all agreed that as government, we have done well and the people are happy with us.”
“Our party is a progressive party. The party that believes in putting the people first but some individuals want us to put them first, which is against our party philosophy.”
For those who don’t know, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo North Senatorial District vowed to resist Obaseki’s attempts to tarnish the image of the party’s national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Leaders of the party in the senatorial district after a meeting on Monday, May 20th, 2019 made the call in a communiqué signed by High Chief Aloye, Chief (Alhaji) Usman Mogaji Charlton and Ahmed Musa Momoh.
“The meeting passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of the national chairman of the APC, COMRADE Oshiomhole. We gathered to basically react to the publication in the Nation Newspapers, which tends to portray in bad light the party primaries conducted by the Oshiomhole led NWC.”
“We have no doubt that the advert was orchestrated by those in Osadebey Avenue who rose to power and suddenly forgot how they got there. We condemned that publication and urged the State Government to stop playing hide and seek game in its attempt to rubbish the legacies of Oshiomhole which we will surely resist.”
“The leaders also reaffirmed that the National Chairman remains the undisputed leader of APC in Edo North and Edo State respectively. They resolved to always stand by him and stand for him at all times.”
“The leaders warned those attempting to destroy the hard-earned amiable character and reputation of the APC National Chairman to desist from such unwholesome practice.”
“The meeting was attended by leaders drawn from the 64 wards in Edo North senatorial district.”
