Oyegun lied, No automatic ticket for Obaseki – Edo APC







The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State loyal to the National Chairman of to Party, Adams Oshiomhole on Thursday rubbished claims by former National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, that Governor Godwin Obaseki was promised an automatic ticket as part of reconciliation in the state chapter of the party.

According to the faction, it was evident the Edo APC primaries would be free and fair, adding that the former Chairman should have informed the world those he claimed to be working against the interest of the party.

Publicity Secretary of the party, Chris Azebamwan, in a statement in Abuja, declared such meeting never took place.

He said that if such a meeting took place and decision arrived at, there would have been no need to set up the National Reconciliation Committee headed by Chief Bisi Akande.

According to him, the party was constrained to respond to statements “credited to Chief John Odigie-Oyegun at page 8 of The Nation newspaper of today, 21st May 2020 and his full-page advert on the same subject at page 10.

“It is not in our character, upbringing or culture to take an elder to task. Especially an elder with the towering stature and credentials of Pa John Odigie-Oyegun who retired as a Federal Super-Permanent Secretary, has been a State Governor and served National Chairman of a major political party. He celebrated his 80th birthday recently, and we wish him many more years of service to the nation.

“Against this background, one is at loss to understand why Chief Odigie-Oyegun would make utterances that portray him as a mouthpiece or hireling of Godwin Obaseki. That the forthcoming primaries in Edo State would be credible is not in doubt.”
