Reports reaching our news desk last night suggests that Comrade Adams Oshiomole the National Chairman of All Progressive Party (APC) may have been suspended from the Party.
According to a statement issued by the State Chapter Chairman, Anselm Ojezua, Comrade Oshiomole was allegedly suspended for causing too much problems in the State. “We don’t want to be treated like Zamfara in the next elections; so with pains we have no choice but to suspend Oshiomole”, stated Mr. Ojezua.
One Mr. Lawrence Okah, caught in the cross fire was also removed from office. The reason for his removal as APC Secretary-General was based on “anti-party activities”.
Following this development, APC Chairmen in the 18 Local Government area of the State reaffirmed their support for Obaseki’s Second term bid.
IZE-IYAMU BOOTED OUT FROM PDP, TO FLY APC TICKET?
All may not be well in the Edo State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chapter where there seems to be no love lost between the leaders; the crisis was reported to have been sparked off by Pastor Ize Iyamu’s alleged infidelity.
Already the said Pastor Osagie Ize Iyamu who flew the PDP’s ticket in the last election has been kicked out. The belief is that he is making underground moves to join the ruling APC, so that he could fly the Party’s ticket in the 2020 election.
In a swift reaction, Mr. Chris Nehikhare, the Party’s Publicity Secretary, dismissed Ize Iyamu’s alleged moves as infantile and selfish. He labelled the Pastor as ungrateful by his refusal to respond to enquiries seeking clarifications of his defection to APC. “As a result of the “uneasy quiet” from our dear Pastor, the Edo PDP is left with no option but to announce his exclusion from all PDP related activities”, read the statement from Nehikhare.
