Mr Kayode Fayemi, the former governor of Ekiti State, has accused Senator  Adams Oshiomhole, of preparing grounds for the All Progressives Congress to lose the forthcoming governorship election in Edo State

He accused Mr Oshiomhole of playing a “disruptive” role during the last weekend primary election, which was later declared inconclusive by the national leadership of the party.

Fayemi who spoke through his media aide, Ahmad Sajoh in a statement alleged that Mr Oshiomhole was instrumental in chasing out governor Godwin Obaseki from the party during the buildup to the 2020 gubernatorial poll in the state.

He hailed the party leadership for cancelling the election primaries which produced Honourable Dennis Idahosa.

“Earlier, Oshiomhole had attempted to eliminate some aspirants from contesting the primaries but failed.

“This is reminiscent of his high-handedness as national chairman when he manipulatively schemed Governor Godwin Obaseki out of the electoral process. That action led to the unfortunate loss of Edo State by the APC.

“It would appear the ground was being prepared by Oshiomhole yet again for the APC to lose the coming election in Edo State because of his unconscionable behaviour.

“However, the party has demonstrated independence and impartiality in cancelling and reordering the primaries.

“We hope the fresh primaries will now take place in an atmosphere deemed free and fair by all, for the sake of our great party.

“Oshiomhole may decide to support any of the aspirants if he chooses not to be neutral, but the process must be open, free, and transparent, following the rules.

“My interest is the APC, and the party must put its best foot forward in the forthcoming elections.”
