The rift between the Edo state chapter of the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC) and its state governor, Godwin Obaseki appears to be getting deeper by the day as the party has come out to accuse the governor of breeding militia in the state.

According to a statement by the State Secretary of APC, Lawrence Okah, Obaseki was accused of masterminding series of attacks on the state leadership of the party.

“Recently, the state government sent people to bomb my residence. The same thing happened at the residence of Chief Inegbeneki.

“Obaseki has gone to recruit militia at Okada under the guise of security outfit. But today they have all been armed to kill APC leaders. When the National Chairman was in Benin to attend a burial, he sent thugs to the airport to stop him from entering the state.

“They went and blocked his residence with trailers belonging to Edo State Waste Management Board.

“Those who have observed the politics of Edo State over the years will certainly see the administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki as one full of mischief when it accused Oshiomhole of perpetrating lawlessness in the state.

“Oshiomhole was governor for eight years in Edo State and at no time did we experience this sort of internal wrangling, maiming, mayhem, harassment and attacks against APC members in Edo State until the coming of Obaseki as governor.

“Oshiomhole used his oratorical prowess, power of persuasion and performance in office to achieve his second term endorsement from leaders of the party in the state. But today, Obaseki is applying intimidation, thuggery, threats and violence to coerce APC leaders across the 18 local government areas of the state to give him a second term ticket.

“This is a shame and it is very embarrassing to Edo APC that gave him the opportunity in the first place to become governor against all odds.”
