A former National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and Senator representing Edo North at the National Assembly, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on Thursday August 10, 2023, said the All Progressives Congress, APC was not a rehabilitation centre for distressed politicians.

The immediate past governor of Edo State addressed journalists after paying a condolence visit to the family of the late Esogban of Benin Kingdom, Chief David Edebiri in Benin City.

Oshiomhole said, “…what I read about somebody going to court to complain about being suspected of being impeached, I don’t know how courts adjudicate over suspicion.

“But let me say this, to say that somebody wants to run to the APC, I want to say APC is not a rehabilitation centre. I can tell you that for free.

“We in APC are satisfied the way we are; we are happy in opposition and we are not about to receive people who are coming because they have lost out. I want to say that there is no IDP camp in APC.

“So my advice is that those who are having challenges, should learn how to respect their bosses. I have always advised people that whoever you work with, be loyal.

“Regardless of party divide, it is my wish for Edo to be governed in peace and harmony because the supra party to which we all belong to is the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the political parties even the rate of camping and decamping and re-camping shows that the only thing that is constant is Nigeria and not the political parties.

“I was here and I was unable to support my deputy to succeed me, but my deputy never took me to court. And if there are people who always profit from crises, they cannot have my support.

“Regardless of what anybody will say, I come from only one of the clans in my local government, it will be nice if only my clan produce the governor but I know that Nigeria doesn’t work that way, there are those sentiments that people think that at this level of our development, the thing should go round.” Senator Adams Oshiomhole concluded.

Recall that Governor Godwin Obaseki had accused his deputy, Comrade Philip Shaibu of preparing grounds to join the APC in the wake of the ongoing battle of worlds that has progressed to the Federal Court, Abuja. Shaibu has dragged Obaseki and four others to court to prevent his alleged impeachment.

While speaking on the accusation on Monday August 7, 2023, Obaseki said: “Let me put it on record that I am not aware of any plot or any scheme to impeach the Deputy Governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu. I have also checked and there was no such plan.

“I Believe that this action by him is a preemptive move to get a court order, keep his ticket and move to another party. I think it’s unfair for our party. We don’t need this sort of crisis.”
