From Tony Osauzo, Benin

The Edo State Government, yesterday, reacted to the defection of a former  chieftain and member of Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, Hon. Charles Idahosa, to the All Progressives Congress (APC), describing him as “a butter and bread politician”.

The State Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, while addressing journalists in Government House in Benin, said “Idahosa is being dishournorable at this time.

“Idahosa has nothing to offer any political party he joins” adding that he has never been a BoT member of the PDP as his nomination was rejected.

Nehikhare further alleged that Hon. Idahosa never at any time left APC and urged him “to go and rest.”

Accusing the APC of clear intention to drag the Oba of Benin into politics, the Commissioner claimed that the party lacks strategy to manage its bad governorship product.

“Since the party has no strategy, the PDP will trample on them in the governorship election”, just as he alleged that the APC has has nothing to show how they want to serve the Edo people better other than propaganda.

Nehikhare stated that on the contrary the PDP led government in Edo State was the first to pay N70,000 minimum wage to workers besides providing infrastructure in various sectors in the state.
