A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, on Monday attributed the party’s defeat in the Edo State governorship election held on Saturday to what he called “the unpleasant carriage and incoherent disposition” of the party’s former National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
According to the result released by the Independent National Electoral Commission on Sunday, the state governor, Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party defeated APC’s Osagie Ize-Iyamu and other contestants.
Eze in a statement titled “Press release” regretted that Edo State has been added to the league of states like Zamafara, Rivers, Bauchi, Bayelsa, Benue, Sokoto, Adamawa, and Oyo that are being governed by the PDP.
He said Oshiomhole must apologize to President Muhammadu Buhari and members of the APC for “the serial embarrassments and heavy damages occasioned by his hinky and very quirky carriage.”
Eze congratulated Obaseki and commended the people of the state for ending political godfatherism in the state.
