Edo: APC chieftain raises alarm over Obaseki, Oshiomhole rift



An All Progressives Congress Chieftain in Edo State, Dr Blessing Agbomhere, says the rift between Gov. Godwin Obaseki and party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, is degenerating.

Agbomhere, a former governorship aspirant of APC in Edo, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday, called for a truce.

He said the crisis did not only discourage potential investors from going to Edo but also de-marketed the state from other states and the world.

“One of the reasons, I am not happy with this present Government of Edo is that I feel that this crisis is de-marketing Edo to the rest of the states and the world.

“Now, they have been burning cars in Edo. They have been shooting and harassing people in Edo. Have you ever heard this government prosecuting anybody for that?

“It means they are not aware or it means they are not working. So, in the last rally, at least we heard that cars were burned.

“If I am a governor of Edo State, I will never support any attack whether in my interest or against my interest because the outcome will affect the Edo people and I will not tolerate it.

“For me, I think that this present government has a challenge in its hand and also has the solution in its hand. I believe that the government knows how to solve it,’’ Agbomhere added.
