APC dismisses Adams Oshiomhole’s expulsion rumours.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, has on Tuesday, dismissed the rumours that the State Working Committee, SWC, is set to expel the sacked National Chairman of the party and former Governor of the State, Adams Oshiomhole, after the party failed to win the September 19, Governorship election in the State, Page 36 learnt.
The APC, however, said that the Committee will be meeting on Thursday, to review the entire electioneering campaign; the election, and the party’s defeat at the just concluded Governorship election to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The State Factional Party Chairman, Barrister Anslem Ojezua, in an interview, debunked the rumour making rounds that the SWC has written to the National Leadership of the party, of their resolve to expel Adams Oshiomhole from the party.
The social media was awashed on Tuesday, with a tweet, allegedly by the APC Edo State Chairman, saying that: “I have written to the APC National Headquarters, that I and all the Party Chairmen down to the Ward level, have all signed the petition to completely expel Adams Oshiomhole from our great party.”
However, in the interview, the Chairman debunked such action, maintaining that the party is yet to meet to review the entire election and its fallout.
He claimed that he is not aware of such move.
According to Ojezua: “We have not met. We are meeting on Thursday, to review the entire situation. That is when we will make our decision known by way of formal briefing. We have not met. We shall meet on Thursday.”
When told that it was gathered that some Local Government Party Chairmen were calling for Oshiomhole’s expulsion, the Chairman said: “They (Local Govt. Party Leaders) can come and canvass that at the meeting, and if that is the decision that is taken, then it is fine, but at the moment we have not met. We are meeting on Thursday.”
