Confusion has hit the camp of the National Chairman of All Progressive Congress(APC), Adams Oshiomhole over the choice of candidate for Edo State Governorship Election.
We gathered that the former Deputy Governor, Dr. Pius Odubu has thrown his cap into the ring to contest the gubernatorial seat of the state which holds later this year.
This, sources revealed, is against the APC National Chairman’s plan to either support Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu or Engr. Ogiemwonyi, depending on who clinches the tickets among the two.
But, we learnt that a group of young politicians is backing Dr. Odubu to contest the governorship race.
The group has brought up the former Deputy Governor following the “love lost” between Oshiomhole and incumbent Governor, Godwin Obaseki.
“We shall no longer succumb to Oshiomhole, the reason we asked Odubu to contest.
“It seems Oshiomhole doesn’t know how to choose a successor. See what happened between him and Obaseki.
“Before this time, Oshiomhole also imposed ‘wrong leadership’ on the Nigeria Labour Congress. So, we have picked our candidate against his own,” the source said.
