Mr. Simon Ebegbulem, a former Media aide to former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC Adams Oshiomhole has accused Chief John Odigie-Oyegun of creating the crisis currently rocking the party during his time as National Chairman.
Mr. Simon Ebegbulem was speaking in an interview on Saturday, saying that Oshiomhole inherited all the problems he battled with.
"Chief John Odigie-Oyegun is one of the elders of this country that I respect so much, he has been there before as National Chairman of APC and it is funny to hear some of the things he says today. Most of the things he says today, he couldn’t do them when he was National Chairman of the party. He actually created the mess Oshiomhole was trying to clear. Most of these crises they are talking about in several states were created by the Oyegun-led NWC.
When asked on the waiver the Edo APC granted Ize-Iyamu, he said, "Obaseki mobilized opposition against the defection of Ize-Iyamu who was coming into the party, he made his ward chairman to deny that he issued Ize-Iyamu membership card and resisted the waiver granted to him to contest. Yet, the same Obaseki went to PDP and in less than three days he was granted waiver. Today, if you conduct an election hundred times in any of the wards on the platform of any party he has decamped to, you will find out that he cannot win."
