The Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council for Edo Governorship election, Chief Dan Orbih has come out to say that the indiscretion of the ex-National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is the reason APC is divided.

Chief Dan Orbih revealed this during a campaign rally Wednesday in Ward 3 Etsako East Local Government Area of the State.

According to him, Adams Oshiomhole has infected APC with political coronavirus and all the wrong he has done must be corrected.

He added that Edo residents are not asking for too much from their leaders and the money is surely available to move the state forward.

His words, “Since Adams Oshiomhole started sowing the seed of division in APC, Adams infected APC with political Coronavirus. His indiscretion has led to the disintegration of APC in Nigeria”

“Edo is not Lagos State. We must change anything that has been done wrongly”.

“Our people are not asking for too much. The money is available, but only a few people want to take over the resources”.
