Why we’ll not attend South-south caucus meeting – Edo APC

The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said its members would not attend Thursday’s emergency caucus meeting called by the National Vice Chairman of the party, Hilliard Eta, in Abuja.

The National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, and the Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, and 71 others were invited to the meeting through a notice placed by Eta in a national newspaper.

The APC in a statement issued on Thursday morning by the state chairman of the party, Anselm Ojezua, insisted that leaders of the party in the zone were not consulted before the meeting was called and that the venue of the meeting is Oshiomhole’s private office.

Ojezua added that the purpose of the meeting is to “procure” and pass a vote of confidence on Oshiomhole.

He said: “Members are by this medium advised to ignore this notice and refrain from attending the meeting.

“A proper meeting of the caucus members within the boundaries of the South-south region of Nigeria should be convened in due course, after consultation with the leaders of the zone.”

Oshiomhole and Governor Obaseki had been at loggerhead over control of party machinery in the state.
