Oba Ewuare II says the disagreement between Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has escalated.
Oba Ewuare II who spoke when he received members of the House of Representatives ad-hoc committee set up to look into the Edo Assembly crisis, said he intervened in the feud between both men but the crisis escalated.
The Benin monarch said he was about to meet both men again when he heard about the committee.
“Like I told President Buhari that I have been talking to the two parties involved, Oshiomhole and the incumbent governor on different occasions. I have invited both of them to discuss with them but things are escalating too fast.
“I was still planning to meet both of them when I heard the House of Representatives has set up an adhoc committee to look into the issue and I pray that you are successful in this task ahead,” Oba Ewuare stated.
