Edo 2020: Dr Pius Egberamwen Odubu Set To Dump APC For PDP

The former Deputy governor of Edo state and APC 2020 governorship aspirant, Dr Pius Egberamwen Odubu has intimated his supporters on his readiness to decamp to the People Democratic Party PDP, as he has lost faith in the leadership capacity of APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
The former Deputy Governor, made this known aftermath of Edo People Movement (EPM) mini primaries held in the private residence of Chief Lucky Imasuen, a chieftain of the party in Benin where Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu a new entrant in the party was adopted as EPM consensus aspirant, which later resulted in free for all.
The mini primaries has since led to disorganization of loyalists of APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. Oshiomhole was accused of doctoring the delegates list in favour of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, this did not go down well with four other aspirants under EPM platform, as they directed their thugs to scatter the meeting and dislodged all the EPM loyalists who were on ground based on Oshiomhole’s directive.
Most members of EPM loyal to Dr. Pius Egberamwen Odubu are now at crossroads as Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu team are reaching out to them on daily basis to cross over to his camp, little wonder, recently one of the supporter of Odubu who is also his cousin was test-running how his popularity will be on social media if he finally cross to Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s camp. Though he later came out to debunks the many pro-Osagie Ize-Iyamu posts on his Facebook account, claiming it was hacked, despite the fact that, he earlier came on the same Facebook account wall to say that the account was hacked, but he has been able to retrieved it.
Situation monitored by News Corner revealed that Dr. Pius Odubu held a secret meeting with some leaders of Edo state People Democratic Party at a private residence in Reservation Area, Benin City and it was concluded that if Odubu can fulfill their term of picking a former Minister of Works from Edo Central and thereafter handover to him in 2024, he will be considered.
Other EPM governorship aspirants have re-emphasized their agreement to work together if any of them emerged except Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu who they see as a desperate sabotage that came into the party through EPM under the guise of strengthening and re-uniting the party.
