Charles Idahosa: I beg Governor Obaseki to allow us to rejoin the APC.

NaijaNews reports that Chief Charles Idahosa, a former Commissioner for Information in Edo state and a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, has revealed that he begged Governor Godwin Obaseki to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC), but the governor refused.

Idahosa, in an interview with the DAILY INDEPENDENT to commemorate his 68th birthday, which falls on September 21, said many APC supporters who defected to the PDP with Obaseki last year are dissatisfied with the way they are treated in the PDP.

While blaming former APC national chairman Adams Oshiomhole for Obaseki’s departure, Idahosa stated that Obaseki never promised to return to the APC after winning reelection in the September 19, 2020 governorship election.

“Will Obaseki return to APC? That is not going to happen. I begged him to take us back to where we came from, but he said no, he’s not interested because I’m not happy with how we’re being treated.”

“I told him we only escorted you here, and now that you have it, you are a two-term governor, can we return to where we came from?” He replied, “No!” He never stated that if he wins, he will return to the APC.

“The President didn’t want Obaseki to leave APC but Oshiomhole pushed his luck too far. Oshiomhole said he wanted direct primaries but the state exco said it wanted indirect primaries and the president told him at a point that whether direct or indirect, return Obaseki but Oshiomhole went back to the drawing board and made sure Obaseki did not participate in the primaries and disqualified him”.
