HAPPENING NOW!! Oshiomhole Under Fire Over Obaseki’s Resignation As APC Governors Take Stance

2 min


APC Governors have berated Adams Oshiomhole over Godwin Obaseki‘s resignation from the party ahead of the Edo 2020.

Weetalknaija Blog gathered that, the Director-General of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, Salihu Lukman, has lampooned the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.

This online newspaper recalls that Governor Obaseki resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party ahead of Edo 2020 on Tuesday. Governor Obaseki disclosed this to State House Correspondents on Tuesday on his way out of Aso Rock, the Presidential Villa.

The Edo State Governor also debunked allegations that his credentials were not original.

Governor Obaseki tweeted:

“I have officially resigned my membership of the All Progressives Congress (@OfficialAPCNg) after meeting with the CoS to @MBuhari.

“We shall continue the battle to protect the interest of Edo people and sustain good governance in the state.”

Like Obaseki, Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, also announced during a news conference that he will be leaving the party alongside his boss.
Reacting to the defections in a statement on Tuesday, Lukman accused Oshiomhole of hawking the party’s soul to “buccaneers” whose interests are winning elections unfairly.

The Director-General said every member of the APC should be worried over recent happenings in the party.

His words:

“It is very difficult and challenging to come to terms with unfolding development in APC. The disconcerting reality of becoming clobbered into another undemocratic political platform, which is intolerant to basic tenets of free and fair contests is hard to admit,” he said.

“Being troubled should have spurred us into some sober reflections with the objective of remedying the situation. Unfortunately, it would appear that we are more determined to reproduce all the obdurate painful experiences, every time we are faced with electoral contests.

“It was Rivers, Zamfara and Bayelsa. Now Edo and Ondo are basically on a roller-coaster with perhaps emerging with the same predictable outcome that consumed our electoral victories in Zamfara and Bayelsa States. Why should this be allowed to happen?

“It is clear that APC leadership as currently constituted under the leadership of Comrade Oshiomhole is imprudent and cannot be entrusted with the task of leading the party.

“Comrade Oshiomhole’s NWC has hawked the soul of the party to political buccaneers whose narrow interest is just about unfairly winning elections.”
