The acting vice president and state chairman of the group, Comrade Osamudiamwen Elvis Ogbidi, disclosed this while conferring the award of Nigerian Most Outstanding Youth of the year 2019 and life patron award on Ambassador Dion Osagie in Benin City.

Another thing this crisis is creating for us is that, it is sending a very wrong message to the youths who are the future of this country. And if we continue to see our fathers like the persons of governor Godwin Obaseki and Adams Oshiomhole always having war of words every now and then, what are they telling us?

“That tomorrow when we become the leaders of this country, we should do the same thing or do worse? It is not so. If we are preaching that there should be peace, there should be peace.

“There should be peaceful, a relative peace, a peaceful coexistence between the party members; between the opposition and between every other parties that exist in the state. Now it is not even between APC and the PDP but it is APC versus APC, it is shameful”, he said.

Ogbidi, therefore, called on President Muhammed Buhari to wade into the crisis rocking the APC in the state for rapid economic development of the state.

He said President Muhammadu Buhari, being the number one cititizen of the country, has the ability to call the governor of the state and the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole to a round table with the view of resolving their differences amicably for the overall interest of the state and the party.

He said, “The President is the number one person in this country because the more the crisis persist, the more they will be spending money without making any effort. This money can be used to develop the state because the state needs more development especially in this era where development is the order of the day but if this crisis to loom, I can tell you categorically that we are in a great problem.

“You will agree with me that for a society to strive, there must be a peaceful coexistence and today in our dear state, we have only one party creating problem for us and that is the All Progressives Congress. It is now a challenge of APC versus APC. The Adam’s camp and Obaseki camp.”

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.
