The executive committee of the All Progressive Congress in Ward six (Umagbae South) of Uhunmwode local government area of Edo have denied allegations of anti-party activities leveled against a former Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, Mr Samson Osagie by the leadership of the party, insisting that they were not aware of any.

The APC leaders in the Ward at a meeting held in Umagbe Ward office of the party said that they were not aware of any committee was set up by the party either at the Ward, local or state level to try Mr. Osagie for alleged anti-party activities.

Speaking to journalists in Benin City shortly after the meeting, Chairman of APC in Umagbae South, Mr. Godwin Obamwonyi, said they were disturbed that party leaders that should seek peace and broker reconciliations were the same people fueling crisis in Uhunmwode.

Obamwonyi who said that Osagie who hails from the Umagbae Ward has always provided leadership that gave the APC victory in Uhunmwode.

He said the leadership of APC in the Ward was shocked that Chief Idah could take sides in a political disagreement among leaders in the locality without recourse to peace moves.

According to him, “after the elections there were no allegations of anti-party activities against Osagie and no committee was set up to investigate anybody.”

“We stand by Osagie in the Ward and other respectable leaders of Uhunmwode who are being oppressed by the state leadership of the party”, it said.

It would be recalled that the State Secretary of the APC, Chief Osaro Idah, had in an interview said Osagie’s suspension was affirmed because he (Osagie) refused to appear before a committee set up by the local chapter of the party to investigate allegation of anti-party activities.

The crises in APC in Uhunmwode local government led to the suspension of 24 party leaders in the locality including Osagie and Josef Omorotiomwan and in a counter move, the suspended leaders removed Mr. Charles Idahosa, former Special Adviser to ex – Governor Adams Oshiomhole on Political Affairs as the leader of the party in the locality.
