Immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC),Chief John Odigie Oyegun has accused his successor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole of being the architect of behind Edo State crisis, thereby frustrating the smooth running of government in Edo state.
The ex APC cheiftain said this through Public Affairs Adviser, Chief Ray Morphy while reacting to recent public ulterance by Governor Godwin Obaseki accusing Oshiomhole of being behind the crisis rocking the state House of Assembly.
Oyegun also accused Oshiomhole of playing god in Edo politics even though he claimed to have buried godfatherism in the state, advising him to stop disgracing the APC in Edo state through the ignoble role he is playing in fuelling the crisis in Edo state.
Oyegun said: “The recent outburst by Governor Obaseki and the report by the House of Representatives ad-hoc committee, indicting the current National Chairman of the APC, have confirmed my earlier claim that Oshiomhole is not only the architect, but also responsible for fuelling the crisis in Edo state.
“In the face of these confirmations, I want to urge Oshiomhole to stop disgracing the ruling party and the good people of Edo state.
I wonder how he could easily forget that I never interfered or bothered about how he ran the government as the then governor of Edo state all the while I occupied the position of the party’s National chairman.
“I am yet to come to terms why it has become difficult for Oshiomhole to realise that Governor Obaseki is the only APC governor in the entire South-south and should be allowed to concentrate in giving the people of Edo the dividend of democracy.
“It is shocking that a man who boastfully claimed to have buried godfatherism in Edo state politics could become enmeshed in playing God to his successor.
Oshiomhole is not only guilty of godfatherism, but also guilty of anti-party activities considering the ignorable role he has been playing and his shameful involvement in the whole Edo crisis.
Oyegun appealed to Oshiomole to stop his embarrassing actions which has been a disgrace to the ruling party and the state.
