Protest hits Edo APC secretariat


Some angry youths and women on Monday took over the All Progressives Congress Secretariat along Airport Road in Benin City, Edo State as they demanded the sack of the state executive members led by acting Chairman, Jarret Tenebe.

Led by the Youth leader of the party, Tony Adun popularly known as Kabaka, the angry protesters forced their way into the offices and brought the furniture, bags of rice and other equipment and vowed to stay at the building for seven days.

Adun said that they were protesting against the conduct of the officials at Saturday’s primary election of the party which threw up three winners.

Recall that one of the top contenders of the Edo APC 2024 governorship primary election, Senator Professor Oserheimen Osunbor has called on President Bola Tinubu to wade into the looming crisis of the party after a flawed primary conducted last Saturday.

Senator Osunbor also called for the cancellation of the primaries, which has so far produced three APC guber flag bearers.
