A former spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Erhahon, has stated that ex-party chairman John Odigie-Oyegun should not be blamed for the crisis rocking the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC).
In a statement released to newsmen at the weekend, he said blaming Oshiomhole’s predecessor will only complicate matters.
Erhahon said: “This is so because the attempt to drag Chief Oyegun out of his post-service quietude into strange controversy has provoked hatred and anger against the NEC and its leadership.
“Comrade Oshiomhole from Edo North senatorial district and Governor Godwin Obaseki his estranged godson from Edo South are at daggers-drawn, so pitching Oshiomhole against Chief Oyegun who is a foremost leader from Edo South, is counterproductive and unwise.
“Similarly, the recent call by supporters of Governor Obaseki on Comrade Oshiomhole to resign as National Chairman has only succeeded in demarketing the Governor who has continued to assert that there is no quarrel between him and Comrade Oshiomhole.”
The former APC spokesperson urged parties involved in the crisis to control their temper and utterances.
“In all, let us bear in mind that however the raging battle is fought, APC will outlive the tension and acrimony of the moment,” he said.
