Chief Charles Idahosa, a former Commissioner for Information in Edo state on Friday said the All Progressives Congress (APC) is dead in Edo state with the disqualification of Governor Godwin Obaseki from the party’s governorship primaries.

Speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Idahosa said the governor’s disqualification by the APC screening committee led by Prof. Jonathan Ayuba did not come to him and many of Obaseki’s as a surprise because Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the party’s National chairman has carefully planned and orchestrated it from the onset.

“It didn’t come to me and many of us who are supporters of Governor Godwin Obaseki as a surprise”.

” It is a hatchet job carried out by a stark illiterate who calls himself the National chairman of APC when in the real sense of it, he is not the National chairman. He has never respected the constitution of the party”.

“It is just unfortunate that I have always repeated the way the party hierarchy is allowing one man who doesn’t even have a primary six certificate to be bastardising the party through illegality”.

” I felt so sorry for APC. It was a charade and I’m happy that coincidentally, it happened on Democracy Day, June 12. On this day, we saw the exhibition of undemocratic actions by a man who doesn’t know his left from his right”.

“APC is dead and the undertaker to carry its corpse is Oshiomhole. Because you have hatred for one man and then you use your official power against him”.
