The Director-General Voice of Nigeria (VON) and chieftain in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Osita Okechukwu, has dismissed claims by former APC National Vice Chairman (North Central), Ahmed Wambai, over a conspiracy by the party’s governors against the party in the last governorship election in Edo State.
Okechukwu’s assertion was against the claim by Wambai that the governors worked against the party’s candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu in the election to the purpose of diminishing the immediate past national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who backed the candidate.
Wambai, had told Saturday Sun that an amalgamation of interests in the APC determined to control the party ahead of 2023 worked against the party in Edo State.
But responding, Okechukwu said:
‘Rather than engage in fruitful introspection and reflection of the misadventure of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s disastrous chairmanship, Ahmed Wambai and some of his disciples via all media outlets are spewing negative narratives against our great party’ Okechukwu said.
‘This vile propaganda must stop forthwith and, as a matter of fact, we all should accept our mistakes and engage true introspection on how the stocks of APC fell from 25 states in June 2018 when Comrade assumed the helms of affairs of our great party to 19 States today. Those who reinvigorated the PDP, which was in a state of decline in 2019, should apologise rather than resort to blame games.’
