The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun, has described the rift between Gov Godwin Obaseki of Edo State and his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, as ridiculous.
Oyegun, who is also a former governor of Edo State, expressed his concern while speaking with newsmen on his birthday in Benin.
The former APC chairman said no one can trace the cause of the feud between Obaseki and Oshiomole.
Oyegun expressed regret that the feud had defied all prescriptions.
The former Chairman of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) noted that the state has gone beyond such feud.
“All of us are dancing round the crisis, but we do not know what started the conflict between two friends,” he said.
“But for me, I listen to the people who said he is performing. Please, let him continue if the people feel he is doing well.
“Quite frankly, what is going on is ridiculous. We are beyond this kind. I am ashamed. Our people have contributed so much to the stability of the State.
“It is unfortunate that Edo State has been in the news for the very wrong reasons, apart from abusing ourselves, you (media) owe the nation a great commitment towards making sure that the truth prevails.”
