The governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has stated that the suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman subsists.

According to Obaseki, the suspension will remain until Oshiomole apologises.

Governor Obaseki stated this during a meeting with leaders of the APC from various wards and local government areas in Edo North.

The meeting which held at Jattu-Uzaire, Etsako West Local Government Area of the state had in attendance stakeholders such as the Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu; Edo State APC Chairman, Mr. Anselm Ojezua; members of the state executive council, as well as party delegates and leaders at wards, local government councils, state and national levels.

Obaseki maintained that the party and its members did not support godfatherism in the state, adding, “If you behave like godfather, we will fight you.”

He also said that due process was followed in the suspension of Comrade Oshiomhole and that any action taken by the suspended National Chairman remains ultra vires.

Governor Obaseki stated that the National Chairman could only be considered back into the party when he apologised to members of the APC, noting that Oshiomhole could not take any action on behalf of the APC because he was validly suspended from his ward.

“Can you imagine a National Chairman that is creating problems in his own house? Because of that, we had to suspend him and he remains suspended. We pray that God should have mercy on him because he has done something bad against God and the people of Edo State; he should find his way back into the party and apologise to all of us.

“If he comes back remorseful and apologetic, we will consider taking him back. If you cannot be a disciplined member of the party, you will leave the party, whether you are a National Chairman or not,” Obaseki warned.
