Edo: Ex APC chairman, Oyegun speaks on Obaseki, Oshiomhole’s face-off
Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun says the conflict between Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki and his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole was “a disagreement between two friends.”
Oyegun stated this weekend in Benin when the leadership of the Correspondents Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Edo State Council, visited him for his 80th Birthday celebration.
He said, “All of us are dancing round the crisis, but we do not know how and what started the conflict between two friends.
“But for me, I took a point of principle of who the people say is performing. Please, let him continue if the people feel he is doing well.
“I would not allow anybody to embarrass me as a Governor. We are in democracy. You have a right to say that you do not like a person, but let the people decide.
“Quite frankly, what is going on is ridiculous. We are beyond this kind. I am ashamed. Our people have contributed so much to the stability of this country
“It is unfortunate that Edo State has been in the news for the very wrong reasons, according to him, “apart from abusing ourselves, you (Media) owe the nation a great commitment towards making sure that the truth prevail”.
