A former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie Oyegun has reacted to a fake report in the social media over a statement purportedly issued by him on the fortunes of the APC, or any other party on the outcome of Edo State Governorship election, slated for this Saturday.
In a statement, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun says the purported statement may have originated from sick minds and desperate persons of criminal orientation.
He reiterated that his views and comments on the political situation in Edo State have been consistent.
The former Governor of Edo State said he strongly advised against the ill treatment meted on Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki by the dissolved National Working Committee of the APC and his forceful exit from the party.
Chief Odigie-Oyegun pointed out that Governor Obaseki stood bravely for the dignity and pride of his people and in the process suffered humiliation and maltreatment.
On the issue of who governs Edo State, the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress stated that the people are sovereign, pointing out that no individual or group, irrespective of status can decide on their behalf.
Chief John Odigie Oyegun, who maintained that he is on the side of the Edo people urge them to come out enmasse on Saturday to exercise their democratic right in the governorship election.
He said voters should bear in mind that it is their right to choose their governor and that nobody can dictate for them who to vote for.
