Ex ally of Gov. Godwin Obaseki, Mr. Peter Esele has come out to say that he does not intend to join the governor in PDP.
He recently revealed that he would continue working for the collective success of the ruling party.
According to Esele, as for him and his house, APC is home and he is not leaving the party anytime soon.
He added that he openly supported Mr. Obaseki on the ground that the crises he was engaged in affected the party as a whole, but he stands for the collective, not the individual.
His words, “As for me and my house, we’re going nowhere. I will not be leaving the APC,”
“I have openly supported Mr Obaseki on the ground that the crises he was engaged in affected the party as a whole.
“My stand is for the collective and not for the individual. While he has chosen to move on, I will remain and carry on working with the collective.”
“But we must never forget the importance of institutions in nation building,
“Sept. 19 is almost here. It is up to us to make it count collectively.
“Politics in Edo State has been in a state of heightened animation and I have been reflecting on some particular emerging trends.
“I feel the need to share some of my musings, considering that I have been very vociferous about disputes in my party, the APC.
“I have made my views known about how the party was being run. This led to a disagreement with the former National Chairman, Mr Adams Oshiomhole.
“My misgivings about power relations and party administrative processes have caused me disagreements in the past but I still insist that my comments are not based on personal bias but on my integrity.
“It is based on the principle that “an injury to one is an injury to all — the central ethic of the labour movement, which I believe encompasses all ethnic and religious divides.”
