The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has distance himself from the All Progressive Congress rally held in the state on Friday.
Obaseki denied any prior knowledge of the rally adding that, as the leader of the party in the state, he was not aware of the rally.
Obaseki disclosed this to newsmen in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie.
He said “We want to reiterate that we are not aware of any rally being organised in the state by the APC. As the leader of the party, it is only proper that the governor is made aware of any such rally. But as at Thursday, we were not aware of any rally, as there has not been communication between the Governor’s office and the party chairman to that effect.
“As a former National Chairman of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and founding member of the APC, Chief Tony Momoh, has recently averred, the governor of a ruling party in a state remains the leader of the party in the state. So, as leader of the party, the governor not being aware of such a rally, only goes to show that it is suspect.
“We want to consequently warn troublemakers to steer clear of the state and not attempt actions that would lead to breach of peace. During the last security meeting, we reviewed the situation in the state and zeroed in on the rising cult clashes in the state. Relevant security agencies have been put on notice to check the incident and ensure that people celebrate the yuletide season in peace.”
