Edo 2024: APC Pardons Suspended Members As Oshiomhole, Others Name Odubu Leader.

The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has lifted the suspension it imposed on some leaders and supporters for allegedly working against the party’s interest in the last general election as the 2024 governorship election draws closer.

Streetdope  reports that the reconciliation meeting was held at the Benin residence of the leader of the party, former governor and now a senator, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

It was gathered that Oshiomhole’s former deputy as governor, Hon Pius Odubu, also emerged as the party’s leader in Edo South senatorial district.

A leader at the meeting told Leadership, “All the suspended members of the party from the unit to ward to local government to state were all told to come back.

“The major reason for the meeting was to unite the party, especially in Edo South, because there is no one person that we can call our leader or a rallying point, so on that day of the meeting, we were able to install Odubu as the leader of the APC in Edo South so we now have a leader that we can always run to, that can call meetings of the party when necessary.

The issue of Edo Central also came up when a leader of the party was tongue-lashed for his role in the last election because he was angry. He worked against the party, but at the end of the day, he was also forgiven. The leader of the party, Comrade Oshiomhole, said all the suspensions should be lifted.

The meeting was strictly by invitation, especially old leaders of the party, and they will take the message home to their people. Oshiomhole was able to make sure that there was an end to the leadership tussle in the party. Although one or two leaders were not too happy with the emergence of Odubu but, their opinions were consumed by the views of the majority of the people, and with this, the party will be moving to the election as a united family.
