Obaseki vows to deal with Oshiomhole
Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, on Wednesday vowed to deal with National Chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, if he keeps disrupting activities of the party in the state.
Obaseki made this known while speaking at the stakeholders meeting across the 18 local government areas in Edo.
Obaseki said he is prepared to show Oshiomhole adding that he is the governor of the state.
He also directed the party chairmen to deal with any person or group carrying out activities that are not in the interest of the state chapter of APC.
Obaseki said, “He is not a party man. Look at the dump he kept the party as a Secretariat. With all the resources we had he could not support the party until the landlord evicted us. You are Governor or chairman based on the platform that elevated you. That is why I looked for one of the most beautiful building along Airport Road and said this is the secretariat of the party.
All these nonsense they are doing. If anybody in the name of our party tries to do anything contrary to what we have agreed as a party, we will deal with that person ruthlessly no matter who he is.
“If you are elected a chairman, your attitude should show if you believe in the party. Party supremacy means the leadership of the party must respect the membership. It is the members that make the party supreme because the members subscribed to a constitution which governs the conduct of the party. One man cannot be the party.
“I am the Governor of Edo State and I so authorise it. If anyone comes to your ward or local government to do things outside what the party has agreed I hereby authorise you to deal with that person seriously.
“We are warning the suspended National Chairman. If he continues his activities in Edo State, I will show him that I am the Governor of Edo State. While he was governor, he did not tolerate a fraction of the misdemeanour and misbehaviour he is undertaking today. I have declared that if Oshiomhole comes here to Edo to say he wants to disrupt the activities of the state and the party, we will deal with him the way we know how best to do it.”
