As the clamour for the expulsion of the dethroned National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and de facto father of Edo politics, Adams Oshiomhole, gathers momentum, the immediate past chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State, Bro Felix Obuah has stepped in to persuade the APC leadership in Edo State to tamper justice with mercy.
Bro Obuah said as true and evident as it has shown that the APC lost the Edo Governorship Election largely because of Oshiomhole's intransigence and arrogance, expelling him at this material time could only translate to political suicide for the already beleaguered Edo-born politician.
He said as a party man, forever Rivers State PDP stalwart and elder statesman who understands the intricacies of party politics, losing the National Chairmanship of the APC in a manner he did, and also losing the arguable position of 'father of Edo politics' is enough punishment for Adams Oshiomhole.
“I really feel for you and indeed all the supporters of APC in Edo State on account of all you suffered in the hands of Oshiomhole both as Edo State Governor and as National Chairman of APC. Nonetheless, I beseech you to forgive him.
Most importantly, if you discard him now, we'll not accept him into our more responsible and united party, the PDP,” Bro Obuah pleaded.
The immediate past Rivers PDP Chairman said as an elder statesman, and core politician, he can discern the degree of regret and remorse that goes on in Oshiomhole's mind and should therefore be forgiven,” Bro Obuah prayed.
