Vehicular movement along airport road in Benin city was brought to standstill
Thursday as aggrieved party supporters of the All Progressive Congress( APC), besieged the party Secretariat along Airport Road, Benin City, calling for the cancellation of Owan West Local Government Area Ward primaries.

In a press statement entitled “Harmonization of Owan West Local Government Ward Executive Lists” signed by Chief Shagari Oni and seven other leaders of the wards, made available to newsmen at the party secretariat in Benin, said the leaders of the party has betrayed their trust by not adhering to instruction handed to them but preferred to favour a particular group in the party to their own detriment.

According to him “That some time ago, we were asked to send the names of four leaders per ward to work with the ward leaders.

“That at the countdown to the congress, we were equally directed to instruct these five leaders to meet and produce a list of executive officers for each ward by amending the existing lists through replacement of persons occasioned by death and effusion.

“That this directive was communicated to the various ward leaders who diligently carried out the assignment and produced a list for each ward that was generally accepted”,

He said on 4th of May 2018, he was invited to Iyamoh with other leaders of the six local government areas that make up Edo North and on getting there, he discovered that Rev. Obadan led other party members namely Prof. Ihonvbere, Omonlei Imadu and Angelina Aigbokhai, Sam Obokhare to present another list different from that which were produced by the party.

Oni said Adams Oshiomhole who is the over all leader of the party, has earlier advised the local government leaders on the need to harmonize the various factional lists and come up with one list per ward that will be acceptable to all adding that to achieve success in that regard, he set up a committee to do the harmonization.

According to him, ” on the day of the harmonization, they waited in vain at the various ward secretariats for the harmonized lists and congress officials did not show up and no lists has been sent to the leadership of the party in the local government.”

He said to worsen the matter, the Obadan led group has started jubilating that their list has been wholly adopted adding that in doing that, it showed that the said Edo North harmonization committee did not consider the two lists rather the factional list produced by the Obadan faction.

He however called on the leadership of the party to wade into the matter and declare the lists of the ward congress being paraded by those parading themselves as the new executive members as fraudulent and that such does not reflect the overall interest of the party.

He said since they have decided to adopt one list instead of harmonizing the two lists, then the one submitted by him (Shagari Oni) should be adopted as the authentic list having complied with the instruction handed down to the leaders of Owan West chapter of the party.
