Orbih, who disclosed this at Igarra, Akoko Edo Local Government Area of the state during PDP Leaders Tour to the the six local govetnments areas in Edo North Senatirial District, said history would repeat itself in 2020 as we had it during the PDP crisis which led to Adams Oshiomhole’s emergence as governor.

He said, “what is happening in Edo State has a historical side of the story. Some years ago, the PDP worked so hard and install a governor in person of Prof. Osunbor. After he assumed office, he started quarreling with the party; there was a big quarrel between Osunbor and chief Tony Annenih.

“It was from that quarrel that the APC took over government from the PDP. Today, history is repeating itself; there is a querrel between Adams Oshiomhole and Mr. Godwin Obasek, I want to tell you that from that querrel the PDP will come back to power.

“I want to say, if Godwin Obasek has his way, PDP will win; if Adams Oshiomhole has his way in the crisis, PDP will still win.”

The party Chairman who described the APC crisis as unique, noted that it’s unfortunate the ruling party has abandoned its sole responsibility of serving the people who voted for them and engage in polical fight.

Earlier, chairman of the Leaders Tour and chieftain of the party, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, said purpose of the tour was to let people know the need for youths to take over leadership position.

Dokpesi who noted that in the past, Edo North PDP has been making election sacrifices, lamented that despite the election sacrifices the party has no any elective position in government.

“In the past Edo North has been making sacrifice but it’s unfortunate that as we speak we do not have any elective position as party. We have resolved to take charge. PDP in Edo North deserves the deputy gobernosrhip position; PDP deserve House Reps.: We deserve the seat of Senate and House of Assembly”, he added.

The Senate has raised concerns about the latest Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) policy on cash withdrawals.

Senate Minority Leader Phillip Aduda in a point of order during plenary on Wednesday called the attention of his colleagues to the new policy and demanded for caution as it will affect many Nigerians, especially small business owners.

In his response, Senate President Ahmad Lawan cautions the CBN not to approach the policy by jumping into it at once as many Nigerians will be affected.

He further noted that there is a need to engage the CBN in discussions to get more details of the policy and he directs the committee on banking to discuss this matter during the screening of the CBN Deputy Governors expected to hold before next week.

The Senate has set next Tuesday to debate the new CBN policy.

Under the new withdrawal policy, the CBN restricted the maximum cash withdrawal over the counter (OTC) by individuals and corporate organisations per week to N100,000 and N500,000 respectively.
