Tom IkimiThe All Progressives Congress in Edo State on Wednesday described the exit of a former leader of the party, Chief Tom Ikimi, as a “defection into the lion’s den”.

The State Publicity Secretary, Godwin Erahon, who made this known in Benin City, said that the party was watching carefully the next political move of Ikimi before responding to the issues he raised for withdrawing his membership of the APC.

He said the former foreign affairs minister’s exit had given the party an avenue to re-strategise at the local level in order to win the forth-coming elections.

Erahon said, “For now the state chapter will not want to comment in details on the decision of Chief Tom Ikimi to leave us. At the appropriate time when he settles down in the PDP where he is obviously going, we will have time to respond to some of his outbursts.

“We saw a lot of claims and counter claims in the letter he wrote; we will address them in due time.

“We wish him well wherever he is going but we sympathise with him because if he said he is running away from crocodile in APC; he is running into the lion’s den”.

The state APC spokesman also noted that Ikimi’s exit from the party was a good omen of better things to come, adding that the APC would defeat the opposition party at the former party leader’s local government.

Erahon said, “Even now in Igueben, the member representing Igueben in the state House of Assembly is from the PDP, which means even while he was with us, he lost his local government to the PDP. Therefore, we cannot lose more than that now that he is gone.

“We are also hoping that with his exit the party will be better organised at his local level and by the next election, we are going to be able to defeat the PDP in that constituency. That tells you that we don’t believe that we have lost anything substantial or meaningful”.
