A former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomole, has described as clear mischief, the allegation that he was plotting the removal of the National Chairman of APC, John Odigie-Oyegun.

Oshiomole said he is in no contest with Oyegun as regards the position of the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The former governor, through his media aide, Victor Oshioke, was reacting to a statement by a group, the All Progressives Congress Youth Vigilante (APCYV) who alleged that the former governor was plotting to unseat Oyegun.

Oshioke said: “Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has no hand in any subterranean attempt to remove Chief Oyegun as chairman of APC. This unknown group, the All Progressives Congress Youth Vigilante exists only on paper and its supposed Director, Emmanuel Oronsaye, is a busybody seeking undeserved attention. Comrade Oshiomhole and Chief Oyegun are both tested administrators from Edo State.

“Oshiomole is certainly not a man who will use underground methods to seek a position if he is interested in it. It is time we ignore these mischief makers who are out to malign Comrade Oshiomhole’s towering image.”
