The Edo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party, has called on the governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki, to call his media team to order, alleging that they had embarked on a campaign of calumny against the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
Naija News understands that the call was made by the leaders of the ruling party in Edo North senatorial district.
The alleged that the governor’s alleged campaign of calumny is with a view to joining his political opponents across the nation in scandalizing Oshiomhole’s name.

This online news platform understands that the APC leaders made this call on Monday after a meeting in a communiqué signed by High Chief Aloye, Chief (Alhaji) Usman Mogaji Charlton and Ahmed Musa Momoh.
The communique obtained by Naija News reads, ”the meeting passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of the national chairman of the APC, COMRADE Oshiomhole. We gathered to basically react to the publication in the Nation Newspapers, which tends to portray in bad light the party primaries conducted by the Oshiomhole led NWC.
“We have no doubt that the advert was orchestrated by those in Osadebey Avenue who rose to power and suddenly forgot how they got there. We condemned that publication and urged the State Government to stop playing hide and seek game in its attempt to rubbish the legacies of Oshiomhole which we will surely resist.
“The leaders also reaffirmed that the National Chairman remains the undisputed leader of APC in Edo North and Edo State respectively. They resolved to always stand by him and stand for him at all times.
“The leaders warned those attempting to destroy the hard-earned amiable character and reputation of the APC National Chairman to desist from such unwholesome practice.”
“The meeting was attended by leaders drawn from the 64 wards in Edo North senatorial district” it added.
