Odigie-Oyegun urges Oshiomhole to stop interfering in Obaseki’s government

<p class="">Former National chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has urged his successor, Adams Oshiomhole, to desist from interfering in the affairs of Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo.</p>

<h1>Odigie-Oyegun gave the advice in a statement signed by his Public Affairs Adviser, Chief Ray Morphy, on Sunday in Abuja.</h1>

<p class=""><em>“I appeal to him (Oshiomhole) to stop disgracing the governing party APC and Edo state.</em></p>

<p class="">“<em>He should give the governor a breeding space to concentrate in doing the job of serving the people of Edo.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>““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 all the while I occupied the position of the party’s National chairman.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“I am yet to come to terms with why it has become difficult for Oshiomhole to realise that Gov. Obaseki is the only APC governor in the entire South-south.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“And he should be allowed to concentrate in giving the people of Edo the dividends of democracy</em>,’’ Odigie-Oyegun said.</p>

<p class="">He urged the Progressive Governors Forum not to stand aside and watch its fellow governor being hampered by a party chairman whose actions might lead to political misfortune of the party.</p>

<p class="">“<em>I want to also appeal to the Progressives Governors not to stand aside and watch their fellow governor hampered by a party chairman whose actions may lead to political misfortune of the party in the state.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“The recent outburst by Gov 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 responsible for the crisis in Edo.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“In the face of these confirmations, I want to urge Oshiomhole to stop disgracing the ruling party and the good people of Edo</em>,’’ Odigie-Oyegun said.</p>

<p class="">News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), recalls that a similar scenario had played out in the last PDP era between its erstwhile National Chairman, Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo, and his then Enugu governor Sullivan Chime.</p>

<p class="">That incident led to the removal of Nwodo by the then ruling PDP. </p>
