The Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State, Mr Felix Obuah has pleaded with the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo to forgive and withdraw the plan to sack Comrade Adams Oshiomhole from the party.
Recall that the APC has blamed the former national chairman of the party for losing the Edo governorship race to the opposition party. However, the former chairman of the PDP pleaded with the party to forgive him in statement signed by his Special Adviser, Jerry Needam on Media and Publicity on Wednesday in Port Harcourt.
“As true and evident as it has shown that the APC lost the Edo governorship election, largely because of Oshiomhole’s intransigence and arrogance, expelling him at this material time could only translate to political suicide for the already beleaguered Edo-born politician.
“As an elder statesman and core politician, I can discern the degree of regret and remorse that goes on in Oshionmhole’s mind and he should, therefore, be forgiven,” he said.
The former chairman also noted that losing the national chairmanship of the APC as he did, and also losing the arguable position of ‘father of Edo politics’ was more than enough punishment for Oshiomhole.
“I’m indeed sorry for he Edo APC supporters on the account that the state had suffered in the hands of Oshiomhole both as Edo state governor and as the national chairman of the party.
“Nonetheless, I beseech you to forgive him but if contrary to my plea, you are still bent on discarding him, I think the PDP will definitely not accept him into our more responsible and united party,” said the former chairman.
