The All Progressives Congress (APC) South-South zone support group, APC Consolidated Network has called on the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki to trade softly in his quagmire with the national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
The group in a press release on Monday in Port-Harcourt signed by the Publicity Secretary of the organization, Barr Peter Ekpeyong, made available to AUTHENTIC News Daily, described the action of the governor as a deliberate calculation to denied the state of development while working assiduously to shift the blame of his failure on the national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Ekpeyong said that if Comrade Oshiomohle was interested in distracting the governor to derail development in the state, he wouldn’t have supported the governor ahead of his deputy Hon Pius Odubu who worked with him for 8 years.
The South-South APC Consolidated Network publicity secretary said that the defeat of the ruling party in the last presidential election in the state orchestrated by the governor will not been forgotten in hurry so for the governor to say that the APC chairman was behind the state’s assembly upheaval is to say the least absurd.
He further said that aligning with the former chairman of the party, Mr John Oyegun on chairman was to overheat the polity which is in tandem with opposition plan in the state.
He urged the governor to sheath his dagger to take the state to another level of development.
