A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Dennis Idahosa (APC-Edo Ovia) has called on Governor Godwin Obaseki and the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, to settle the rift between them.
Speaking to newsmen on Sunday in Benin, the lawmaker said the crisis, which had created a wide gap among party faithful, had become a threat to the development of the state as well.
Idahosa also commended the traditional rulers in the state, led by the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, over their move to end the crisis.
“This is what we should all be emulating; to work to see to the end of it rather than fueling it or taking sides,” Idahosa said.
“İ am quite aware that there must be disagreement for a better understanding to take place, but not one that should degenerate into name calling on the pages of newspapers and social media platforms.
“Like one big family, irrespective of the position we might have taken on this matter, we must ensure that all the contending issues are settled amicably, especially if we are genuinely concerned about the development of our state.
“I dare say that Gov. Godwin Obaseki needs a friendly environment to continue with his developmental strides in the state.
“Likewise, our National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole needs a conducive environment to continue to superintend over the affairs of our great party at the national level.”
