The All Progressives Congress, Edo State has rejected allegations that the state governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki is currently battling his predecessor and National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole over control of the state and the state House of Assembly.
The state chairman of the party, Anselm Ojezua blamed the dispute on the deceptive nature of politicians in the state.
He said Edo State has been in the news for the wrong reasons because specific individuals who took over the resources of the state in one way or the other resorted to blackmail and misrepresentation of facts to rubbish the relationship between the governor and his predecessor when the current government stopped them from diverting funds meant for the development of the state.
His words, “It is just that a third party is trying to create rift between our national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Obaseki.
“But the national chairman of the party has discovered the ulterior motives of the political jobbers going to him in Abuja to spread all sorts of falsehood that the governor had dumped the blueprint drafted to make Edo State attractive for investments in order to rubbish Oshiomhole’s regime; or that the governor is against his people or that the party is bound to lose the next election if the governor is allowed to continue in that direction.
Our national chairman now knows better and we are talking; we are back to where we ought to have started.”
