Edo 2020: Gov. Obaseki Speaks On Dumping APC To PDP

Date:

The Special Adviser to Edo State Governor on Political and Community Matters, Chief Osaro Idah, has said that Governor Godwin Obaseki has no plan of leaving the All Progressives Congress, APC, ahead of the Governorship election in the State in 2020.

In a statement on Tuesday, Chief Idah said: “Our attention has been drawn to a news item published on page 12 of Vanguard edition of July 16, 2019, stating that Governor Godwin Obaseki met with two Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governors, to strategise on a fresh platform to run for re-election, should the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC,  Comrade Adams Oshiomhole deny him the APC Gubernatorial ticket.

“Media houses and members of the public should be wary of stories like this planted by detractors of the Governor and the Edo State Chapter of the APC. These persons are threatened by the wide acceptance and support which the Governor enjoys from his people.”

The Governor’s Aide added: “We state categorically that Governor Obaseki has no intention of leaving the APC, where he has firm support at the State level and across all Local Governments, Wards and Units of the party.

“In Edo State, the Governor’s popularity within the party and across the State is overwhelming and the few deviant troublemakers within Edo APC and their sponsors in Abuja are warned to desist from the irresponsible act of trying to cause trouble in their own home while seeking refuge elsewhere.”

Chief Idah said that “beyond Edo State, Governor Obaseki’s growing popularity and influence within the APC, recently earned him the position of Vice Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, a position he has tremendous respect for.”

In recent time, there has been political rancor between Governor Obaseki and his political godfather, Adams Oshiomole over who becomes the next Governor November 2019.
