APC defends Oshiomhole over Oyegun’s accusations


The All Progressives Congress has exonerated its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, of any blame in the crisis rocking the Edo State House of Assembly.

In a statement by his Public Affairs Adviser, Ray Morphy, the immediate past National Chairman of the party John Odigie-Oyegun, had accused Oshiomhole of fuelling the crisis in Edo State.

Oyegun said Oshiomhole claimed to have buried godfatherism in the Edo State politics, but was now playing God to his successor.

He further added that Oshiomhole is guilty of anti-party activities and urged him to allow Obaseki concentrate in giving the people of Edo the dividends of democracy.

But addressing journalists in Abuja on Sunday, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said under the constitution, the House of Representatives had power to direct the governor to do the right thing.

He also denied knowledge of any report indicting Oshiomhole in the Edo Assembly crisis.

The ruling party have called on Governor Godwin Obaseki to issue a new proclamation for the inauguration of the elected members of the state Assembly.
