Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has commended President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, for foiling an alleged plan to remove the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
The governorship aspirant on the platform of the party had accused some people of using the resources of Edo State to push for the removal of the APC National Chairman.
Ize-Iyamu while speaking with APC leaders and members in the state, stated that he was very grateful as the former governor of the state’s removal would have been shameful and disappointing.
“President Buhari, Asiwaju Tinubu and other leaders of APC deserve commendation for foiling a coup, which was the product of a grand conspiracy, coordinated and funded from Edo State, for the removal as National Chairman of APC, an Edo son, Comrade Oshiomhole.”
“You can imagine a situation where few Edo indigenes were spending Edo people’s money to pay some people to remove an eminent son of the state as the National Chairman of APC.”
“Edo people are not ingrates. We appreciate the people who stood by us in times of need. We do not want the attitude of a few persons to give a wrong signal, because gratitude is in our DNA.”
Recall that Adams Oshiomhole and the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki have been involved in political rift over godfatherism.
