Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has warned the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole to stay clear of the party’s governorship primary slated for June 22 .
Obaseki issued the warning after submitting his nomination form on Wednesday.
Six other governorship aspirants in the state’s APC gunning for the party’s Governorship also submitted their nomination forms.
The Governor said ““I call on Comrade Oshiomhole to recluse himself from the Edo nomination process because he is an interest party. It is against natural justice for a man to be a judge in his own case. So I think the honourable thing to do is to recluse himself and lets have a free process and lets reconcile and build our party.
“On a final note, I am actively pursuing peace, actively pursuing harmony in our party, particularly at home and I believe that there will be peace.”
“In life everybody get helped, everybody get assisted. The person you talked about (Oshiomhole) had no money when he left Labour to contest. We knew what we did to make him Governor. I sacrificed eight years of my life to serve Edo State Probono, I collected no Kobo to serve him (Oshiomhole) in Edo”.
“It is very asurd. I am someone that is very exposed. How can I collect form from two parties when we have rulings in past disqualifying people on that. I am a party man to the core. APC is my party because I come from a progressive political family. I believe in the ideals of APC.
“I believe in our President, I believe in what he stands for so I am a party man to the core. I am not an old styed politician. I represent a new direction of politics that is based on facts and truth not lies”.
