Alleged Plans To Defect To PDP: Edo Governor, Deputy Suspended By APC Factional Group

GOVERNOR GODWIN OBASEKI 

BENIN, EDO STATE, NIGERIA - The suspension of Governor Godwin Obaseki; his deputy, Philip Shaibu; and the Secretary to the State Government, Ogie Osarodion, was on Wednesday (today)  announced by the Edo Peoples Movement (EPM), a faction of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state. 

The announcement was made by Patrick Ikahriale at an enlarged meeting and press briefing which took place at the residence of Gen. Charles Airhiavbere in Benin, on behalf of EPM. 

Patrick Ikahriale said: “Governor Obaseki, his deputy, Phillip Shuaibu; Anslem Ojezua and Osarodion Ogie (SSG), from available information from top leaders of the PDP, have concluded plans to defect from the APC and seek re-election on that platform.

“For us the authentic APC stakeholders in Edo State, we wholeheartedly denounce such.

“We wish to state that at the appropriate time, the APC National Working Committee will initiate the process of party primaries for the selection of the party’s gubernatorial candidate.

“We will abide by the guidelines for such primaries as the constitution of the party vests the responsibility of conducting primaries on the NWC.

“We are prepared to give every aspirant equal opportunity to test their popularity. We will resist any attempt to close the political space. 

“Consequently, we hereby suspend Governor Godwin Obaseki, Hon Phillip Shuaibu and Barr. Osarodion Ogie from the party for anti-party activities and urge the National Working Committee to set the machinery in motion for further disciplinary action against them.”
