DAILY FILE – The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has charged Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to respect the decision of the party in the state concerning the inauguration of the State House of Assembly, just as Oshiomhole reportedly perfected arrangement to stop his godson Obaseki’s second term in 2020 by all means.
Recalled that,former governor of Lagos state and national leader of APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu had stopped his godson Ambode’s second term in Lagos.
Obaseki, said this while berating Oshiomhole over his remarks concerning the inauguration of the State House of Assembly.
The governor’s charge was contained in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie.
The statement reads: “We read with utter astonishment, a statement credited to the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, with respect to Governor Godwin Obaseki’s alleged role in the inauguration of the Edo State House of Assembly.
“Apart from the fact that he based his conclusion on a totally false and baseless premise, we believe that he could have shown that he does not have a vested interest by simply inquiring from his friend, the governor or any official of the State Working Committee of our party as to what actually transpired.
“His failure to satisfy the basic tenets of natural justice, which makes fair hearing from all sides of a matter mandatory, has clearly exposed his bias on this issue. For the avoidance of doubt, all the decisions relating to the leadership of the Edo State House of Assembly recently elected by the House were taken by the State Working Committee and leaders of the party from across the state.
“In reference to the rule of party supremacy, which our national chairman so eloquently professes, the governor and all party members are obliged to respect the party’s decision, as we expect the national chairman to also do.”
