Former Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State, Felix Obuah, has begged the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State to forgive Adams Oshiomhole.
He said this in reaction to alleged plot to expel the former Edo Governor.
Obuah’s reaction on Wednesday was signed by his spokesman, Jerry Needam.
“As true and evident as it has shown that the APC lost the Edo governorship election, largely because of Oshiomhole’s intransigence and arrogance, expelling him at this material time could only translate to political suicide for the already beleaguered Edo-born politician.”
Obuah said being a core politician, he could discern the degree of regret and remorse that goes on in Oshiomhole’s mind
“I’m indeed sorry for the Edo APC supporters on the account that the state had suffered in the hands of Oshiomhole both as Edo State governor and as the national chairman of the party.
“Nonetheless, I beseech you to forgive him but if contrary to my plea, you are still bent on discarding him, I think the PDP will definitely not accept him into our more responsible and united party,’’ he added.
The APC has denied the purported expulsion plot.
The Aslem Ojezua-led faction of the Edo All Progressives Congress, APC, has dispelled rumour that plans are underway to expel Adams Oshiomhole, a former National Chairman of the party from the party.
Ojezua told The Nation that the rumour making the rounds that the APC faction has written the national body of the party informing it of their plans to expel to end Oshiomhole’s membership of the ruling party.
Ojezua insisted that the APC was yet to meet to review the entire election, adding that such plans are not known to him.
According to Ojezua, “We have not met. We are meeting on Thursday to review the entire situation. That is when we will make our decision known by way of formal briefing. We have not met. We shall meet on Thursday.”
A tweet, allegedly by Ajezua on Tuesday had read, “I have written to the APC National headquarters that I and all the party chairmen down to the ward level have all signed the petition to completely expel Adams Oshiomhole from our great Party.”
