Obaseki Plotting To Forcefully Demand Details Of My Movement In Edo – Oshiomhole

Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), has accused his successor, Governor Godwin Obaseki, of plotting to forcefully demand details of his movement in Edo State.

Oshiomhole, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, in Abuja on Tuesday, said Obaseki was planning to dump the party, and also creating crisis among party members in the state.

The APC National Chairman advised Obaseki to focus on delivering good governance to the people, rather than blackmailing his personality.

He said: “We have it on good authority that the governor (Obaseki) intends to create disaffection and crisis in the state, APC and probably dump the party for another party.

“That is why, he has embarked on this brigandary which Edo people will resist. So, he should stop blackmailing me and face governance which is why Edo people voted him into power.

“We are even more scared now that the governor is making every effort to coerce me into giving him details of my movement in Edo State. Who knows what he is plotting again. But every evil plot against me will fail.”

The former Edo governor further alleged that  state-sponsored thugs have been harassing party members because APC leaders have refused to endorse Obaseki’s second third ambition.

“Before that incident, state government sponsored thugs have been harassing, intimidating APC members across the 18 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state because APC leaders refused to adopt his second term aspiration.

“People are being sacked in their jobs everyday in the state,” he added.

The two former allies have been at loggerheads over the state of governance in Edo, with Oshiohmole insisting that Obaseki would not be given the second term ticket.
