‘No cause for worries in Edo politics’


The Chairman of the Edo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Anselm Ojezua, has assured party members that there is no cause for worries, despite the altercation between the governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki and the suspended National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, noting that no man can play God.

Ojezua spoke after a meeting with party leaders in Edo North held at Jattu-Uzaire, Etsako West Local Council of Edo State.

He reaffirmed that there was no division in the state’s chapter of the party.


Ojezua said: “There’s nothing to be afraid of, as no man is God and God is firmly standing with Edo people. You hear them say Edo APC is divided. Is there anybody of substance in Edo North, who is not here today?

“That division is in the imagination of some people, not APC. The APC in Edo is intact, and would soon announce a committee for mobilisation of new members from across the 18 local councils. We must remain focused and avoid distractions.

“Whatever is happening in Edo today, is not new. This is the third time. The first was between Chief Anenih, who claimed to be the leader of the party and Lucky Igbenedion, who the Constitution empowered to be the leader…

“The same Oshiomhole, who is claiming leadership of the party has forgotten how he fought in the past. He said Obaseki is in charge of administration, while he controls the state’s politics since Obaseki isn’t a politician but a technocrat. But we say no. It is unfortunate that the national chairman allowed some persons to deceive him, despite knowing that the governor is the leader of the state.”
