A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Charles Idahosa, Wednesday, February 5, said the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has been running away from all attempt to settle his rift with the state governor, Godwin Obaseki.
Idahosa disclosed this in Benin City during a solidarity visit paid to him by party chairmen from the 18 local government councils of the state on his purported suspension from his ward in Uhunmwode gocal government.
According to the former Political Adviser to former governor Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, he (Oshiomhole) pretend to open for settlement before the public but do the contrary behind the scene.
He said, “Oshiomhole is the one running away from settlement. Adams comes to the public and say he wants settlement but go behind to do something else.”
On his purported suspension, Idohasa described the act as another “another wise goose chase.”
Commenting on the forthcoming election in the state partucularly the primaries, the party Chieftain said the state chapter of the party will determine the kind of primaries to be adopted and not the national as insinuated in some quarters.
He said he was optimistic that Obaseki would run his eight years and that nothing would stop him from winning the party ticket at the primaries.
“There is no cause for alarm…Don’t be bothered or shaken, Obaseki must do his eight years. If anybody by omission or commission stop him, APC is dead in Edo State. I have said it many times and I want the powers that be to understand this”, he declared.
