Edo: APC not behind PDP crisis – Oshiomhole

2 Min Read

Edo North Senator, Adams Oshiomhole has distanced the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the crisis surrounding the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, primary election in the state.

Oshiomhole said the law does not allow APC to interfer in PDP’s primary election conflict.

The Abuja Federal High Court had nullified the primary elections conducted by the PDP that produced Asue Ighodalo as its governorship candidate in Edo State.

The court voided the primary election conducted on February 22, 2024, because 378 delegates were unlawfully excluded by PDP.

However, Oshiomhole speaking with journalists yesterday in Abuja, said: “This is purely PDP intra-party, and I think the lesson is very clear, namely that parties must be encouraged to obey the laws that regulate the conduct of primaries.

“By the law, another party cannot go into intra-party conflicts in court.

“I think you should dismiss that because this is PDP versus PDP and you know that by the law, another party cannot go into intra-party conflicts in court. So if it is convenient for them to explain that you can dismiss it without asking me.

“The fact that there had been division in Edo before their primaries and after their primaries is an open secret, and the issues in dispute are also very open.

“The PDP legacy group complained that the man they gave their master bedroom has completely chased them out of the building and now they’re under the rain and as we speak they are still trying to settle.”
