Charles Idahosa, has blamed the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, for his exit from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Naija News recalls that Idahosa had defected to APC from PDP in 2020, saying he could not stand and watch Obaseki being oppressed and badly treated by APC leaders by denying him a return ticket.

In an interview with journalists on Tuesday in Benin, Idahosa said he played a critical role in Obaseki securing his second term ticket and subsequent victory at the 2020 governorship election.

Idahosa claims that Obaseki’s disregard and unfair treatment of the party’s leaders frustrated him.

The former PDP chieftain also added that besides the ill-treatment, the state had not experienced development in the last seven years.

He said, “I stood up against former governor Adams Oshomhole, who was then, the APC national chairman, whom I had worked with in various capacities before the 2016 governorship election.

“So, because I saw that Obaseki was being victimized, my supporters and I decided to move with him to the PDP where he eventually secured the ticket and returned as the governor for the second time.

“Unfortunately when he came, he wasn’t fair to the people and party leaders that helped him to power.

“He keeps saying that people are angry with him because they wanted him to share state money with them and I have challenged him to mention the names of the people so that the whole world will know them.

“So I just got frustrated and left the party because he has not been fair to party leaders and the people that stood for him in 2020 when he had problems in APC. ”
