Obaseki warned that the former governor of the state if he continues to disrupt activities in the state and the state chapter of the party.
Recall that the state government on Tuesday had accused the APC Chairman of breaching peace in the state.
The governor stated this while speaking with the APC local government Chairmen in the state in Benin on Tuesday, he called on the party chairmen to deal with any person working against the party interest.
Obaseki in his statement said: “All this nonsense they are doing if anybody in the name of our party tries to do anything contrary to what we have agreed as a party we will deal with that person ruthlessly no matter who he is.”
“If you are elected a chairman, your attitude should show if you believe in the party. Party supremacy means the leadership of the party must respect the membership. It is the members that make the party supreme because the members subscribed to a constitution which governs the conduct of the party. One man cannot be the party.”
“We are warning the suspended National Chairman. If he continues his activities in Edo State, I will show him that I am the Governor of Edo State. Why he was Governor, he will not tolerate a fraction of the misdemeanour and misbehaviour he is undertaking today.”
“I have declared that if Oshiomhole comes here to Edo to say he wants to disrupt the activities of the state and the party we will deal with him the way we know how best to do it. Comrade Oshiomhole stands suspended from the party. In due course, we will expel him if he does not behave. The party does not belong to him, it belongs to all of us.”
