Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Edo state, Mr Aslem Ojesua, has said the party is not ruling out any option for now so far it’s a collective decision.
Speaking on the current affairs program monitored in Lagos on Tuesday on the crisis rocking the APC in the state and the determination of its National chairman, Adams Oshiohmole to wrest the ticket from the incumbent governor, Ojesua said in politics, no option is ruled out once it’s a collective decision when asked if the Peoples Democratic Party will be an option for the Governor Godwin Obaseki in case he loses the primaries to his arch rival, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Ojesua who said he regretted canvassing for Adams Oshiohmole to be the national chairman of the party, Calls on leaders of the APC at the national level to prevail on the chairman lest he destroy the party in Edo state.
It will be recalled that Obaseki and his estranged godfather, Oshiohmole has been locked in battle for supremacy over who controls the party in Edo state.
There have been allegations and counter allegations on both sides on the suitability of direct or indirect primaries to choose the party’s candidate in the September election. While Oshiohmole’s NWC has said it will be through direct, Obaseki and the leadership of the party in Edo state prefer indirect.
Obaseki who visited President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday in Abuja to intimate him of his re-election, said his predecessor is being misguided and pleaded that he be given a second term to complete the projects he has started.
