Latest Politics updatein nigeria
National Vice Chairman, South-South of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dan Orbih, has cautioned Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State and his Deputy, Philip Shaibu over the frosty relations between both.
Lifestyle Nigeria disclosed that there have been several reports on the power tussle between Obaseki and Shaibu in the past months.
Orbih in a statement on Tuesday, called both parties to “exercise restraint in what to say or do in the course of this ongoing needless and endless crisis.”
The PDP Chieftain said, “To my surprise, official letters, which should be confidential, are now dominating the social media space. I urge both parties to stop further hostilities and resolve their differences quietly in the interest of good governance and progress of the state. Anything less may affect the image and fortunes of the Party in the coming Guber election.
“Yes, we have had issues in the past between party and government, but we haven’t allowed them to be subject to newspaper editorials.
“PDP is a strong brand in Edo State – a brand that has been nurtured over the years by the commitment of leaders and dedicated members of the party. This brand is now under serious threat by the current raging battle between the Governor and Deputy-Governor.”
He, therefore, seized the opportunity to call on both parties to ‘cease fire’ and resolve their differences amicably.
