Senate Deputy Chief Whip Speaks On Dumping APC For PDP

Senate Deputy Chief Whip, Francis Alimikhena
has denied dumping the All Progressive
Congress, APC.

The Senator, representing Edo North, in a
statement issued by his Personal Assistant,
Benjamin Atu, maintained that the reports
were false.

Alimikhena said the report making the rounds
was to discredit him ahead of the forthcoming
APC primary election.

The lawmaker, however, stated that he would
rather resign from active politics than joining
the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to fight
against his brother, Comrade Adams
Oshiomhole, who is the APC National Chairman.

The statement read, ”we are embarrassed by a
document now going round alleging that Edo
state will be having all 3 Senators in the PDP
soon; the report has it that Sen Francis
Alimikhena is negotiating return to PDP.

“Senator Francis Alimikhena would rather
resign from active politics than joining the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to fight against
his personal brother, who is the APC National
Chairman.

“Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is Edo North
leader and it behoves on all of us to pray for
him, support him and join him to achieve the
national task given to him rather than creating
tension for him and avenue to create division
in the Edo North APC.”
