Edo Governorship Screening: No Protest At APC National Secretariat Against Gov. Obaseki

0

The All Progressive Congress(APC) has denied allegation that its National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has instigated and sponsored protests against Governor Godwin Obaseki.

The National Publicity Secretary, APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, in a statement on Wednesday said, “Our attention has been drawn to a false allegation credited to the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Mr. Philip Shaibu that the National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole instigated and sponsored protests against Governor Godwin Obaseki, one of the six aspirants being screened for the Party’s June 22 Edo State Governorship Primaries.

“We would like to state that there was no protest at the APC National Secretariat, muchless a sponsored one as wrongly alleged.

“With several visitors, including journalists covering activities of the Party’s National Secretariat having no knowledge of the so called sponsored protest, we find it strange that the Edo State Deputy Governor has reported a purported protest at the APC National Secretariat when he was in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

“While we are not oblivious of the ongoing political contestations, our politicians should be careful not to overheat the polity with unsubstantiated claims.”

The statement explained that the Party’s leadership has selected an independent, thorough, experienced and diverse team to conduct the ongoing Governorship screening exercise, we call on all stakeholders to give them the needed support and cooperation.

“There is also a need for continuous and rigorous factchecking by the media.

“The screening exercise to verify credentials of the six Governorship aspirants is ongoing at the APC National Secretariat and is being conducted smoothly and hitch-free,” the statement added.
