BENIN—Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Edo State, has challenged the Secretary to the Edo State Government, Prof. Julius Ihonvbere to reconcile his present defence of Governor Adams Oshiomhole to his past words and wars with the governor.
The party in a statement took the government scribe to task over his past disapproval of the projects and actions of the governor, wondering why and what made him to change his stance. Noting that Ihonvbere’s comment in the past that being without a board membership was a stress, the PDP said it was tempted to believe that the government scribe may have changed his position because of his new position and the patronage of office.
PDP’s Administrative Secretary, Mr Gabriel Oloruntobi in the statement, made several comparisons of Prof. Ihonvbere’s past statements about the alleged failures of the Oshiomhole’s government and his present defence of the governor.
“Lately, PDP has become the pre-occupation of this failed governorship aspirant. If one may ask, what is the business of this Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN busybody in the internal affairs of PDP? It is obvious he is being a meddlesome interloper,” PDP said.
