Adams Oshiomhole

The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in Edo State has blamed its failure in the recently concluded governorship election in the state on Adams Oshiomhole, the party’s past national chairman.

The APC in the state said Oshiomhole’s arrogance and irresponsible leadership was the reason for its woeful outing in the poll.

Toeing the line of the party at the national level, the Edo APC further congratulated Governor Godwin Obaseki for his success recorded at the polls.

This was contained in a statement by Anslem Ojezua, chairman of Edo APC, issued on Tuesday.

“We join President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Caretaker Committee of our great Party to congratulate Governor Godwin Obasekl and his Deputy Rt. Hon. Philip Shalbu for their victory at the just concluded Governorship election in Edo state,” said Ojezua in the statement.

“The election has been generally acclaimed to be peaceful, orderly and transparent. The people of Edo State have made their choice In a very clear and unambiguous manner.

“Our loss at the poll stems from the needles and avoidable crisis foisted on the party by a selfish, insensitive, arrogant and irresponsible leadership.

“While we begin to take steps to try and salvage the well being of our party in the state, we call on the governor to be magnanimous in victory while we urge all those who contested to sheathe their swords and put the elections behind us.

“We must all and close ranks with the government in order to ensure a seamless transition to the final lap of governance in the State without being subjected to any further needless distraction and rancour.

“The establishment of a robust infrastructural base to guarantee economic growth at this critical time must be the paramount consideration and in the best interest of the good people of Edo state.”
