Also, he said Obaseki should obey the directive of the National Assembly in conjunction with the National Working Committee of the party to send a proclamation letter to carry out another inauguration of the 7th Assembly in the State before the five-day deadline given to him.

According to him,“the governor’s action is full of anti-party activities gear towards truncating the good name the party we have built over the years. For we in APC and Edo Peoples’ Movement, we are saying no to Obaseki’s second term”

He added that “The state is in an unfortunate situation today because of one man who is Mr know it all, he is not our candidate.

“He is APC by name not by blood. If he is planing to decamp to another party all he need, is to formalise the process because we are seeing what is happening. His advisers are doing a very poor job.

“Nobody can intimidate the people of Edo State for it is our right to make our choice especially at a time like this when the state is in dire need of good dividends of democracy.”
