The crisis rocking the Edo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), worsened on Tuesday, as embattled Governor Godwin Obaseki, denied knowledge of a rally planned by the party to hold in Benin City, on Friday.
This is even as the state chairman of the party, Anselm Ojezua, described the supposed rally as provocative and handiwork of unauthorized persons.
According to sources, the mega rally is for receiving a former governorship candidate of the PDP, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and hundreds of his supporters, to the APC.
It was also gathered that the Vice President, Prof. Yomi Osinbajo and the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will be at the rally to receive the defectors.
The Governor, in a chat with journalists after meeting with heads of security agencies in the state at Government House, in Benin City, the Edo State capital, said “I have checked with the state APC secretariat and as far as I am concerned, the party has not announced officially that they will be having a rally.”
He said issues of public safety was reviewed at the security meeting, particularly in relation to the yuletide season.
